Stan Ridgway — Don't Box Me In lyrics

You walk, I'll run
And follow right behind you
You call, I'll come
And I won't remember where I come from
Over there, at the end of the bar
This fish keeps swimmin' in a jar
I feel a tug on the line
Which end will I be on this time?

Chorus:
Don't box me in
Don't box me in
Don't box me in
Don't box me in

One day I'll show them
Just what I'm made of
There'll be a time
When I won't remember what I was afraid of
And I'll be swimmin' in the sea
No banging on this glass for me
My eyes turned red when my life turned blue
So I'm leaving everything, that's true
And I'll jump into
A brand new skin

Chorus:
And then you won't be able to box me in
Don't box me in
Don't box me in
Let go

There's a few places 'round
That I've never been
There's an ocean out there
That I gotta swim
There's a river that flows
Right past my door
I wonder
I wonder...
... What?

And if sometimes I can't seem to talk
You'll know this blackboard lacks a piece of chalk.

Chorus:
Don't box me in
I told you not toЁcЁcdon't box me in
Don't box me in
Don't box me in
Let go
