I'm trapped in a box
Just me and you
You've come back to haunt me
Break me in two

It was a sweet summer fling
That smelled of fresh water
But little did I know
My heart was a lamb to the slaughter

When you kissed me goodbye
And we shared one last glance
I was falling really fast
And I realised I wouldn't stand a chance

If I could do it all over
I would've never let you go
I had you wrapped around my finger
Now all I see is your shadow

How did I end up here?
In this empty ice cold box
Holding nothing more
Than nostalgic dreams of the rocks

Blinded by desperation
Drowning in doubt
Struggling to be free
Looking for a way out.
