The box

(Ebunoluwa Soneye)

The song is about how things were so much simpler when we were kids,and life wasn't so complicated,the dreams that everyone has sometimes is forgotten and as we grow up we get into the box of survival,society,beauty,money and our daily jobs and sometimes we forget to live.

Chorus: Do you remember us Jumping all over the place Building houses with Lego bricks Sometimes sleeping all day Wasn't it fun when we were kids Always finding broken things and trying to fix them Running into places we have never been to But now that we are older Saying safety comes first We refuse to leave the box Going out everyday God forbid it rains Or the weather becomes too hot Putting hours into a job that sucks I don't like my boss but I will get another job Making promises we never keep Wishing we were kids Telling lies to ourselves to keep us on our feet Losing a wallet in the bus The feeling of embarrassment Imagine the look on the bus driver's face Money is a god we now worship Getting a car bigger than a bus is the key. Making promises we never keep Wishing we were kids Telling lies to ourselves to keep us on our feet XXXXXXXX XX XXX XXX XXX XXX XXXXXX XX XXX XXXX X XXXXXXX XXXX XXXX X XXXX XXXXXXXXX X XXXX XXXXX XX XXXX XX XXXXXXX XXXX XXXXX XX XXXXXX XXXX XXX XXX XXXXXX XXXXXX XXXXXXXX XX XXXXX XXXX XXXXXXX XX XXXX XXXX XXXXXXX XXXX XX XXXXXXXXX XX XXXX XX XX XXX XXXX XXXXXXX XXXX XX XXXXXX XX XXXX XXX XXXX XXX XXXX XXXXXXX XXXXX XXXXXX XX XXX XXXXX XXXXX XXX XXX XX XXXXX XXXXXXX XXX XXX XXXX XXXXXX XXXXX XX XXXXX XXX XXXXXX

When you left

By Ebunoluwa Soneye

The song is about when a loves one dies and the pain that the one left behind feels,the memories the person has of the dead person and how its unimaginable that the person is gone. The pain is undescribable, the hopelessness of it all and not knowing how to move on and start afresh because the person is all you can think about. Your life almost revolved around that person,you spents days,weeks,and months with the person and even though it wasnt planned you are expected to move on and live without them.

I wanted to try and show a possible conversation somebody could have with versions of themselves. Possibly a good side that was jealous of the "bad" side.
