Alessia Cara – Box in the Ocean Lyrics

I don’t want to grow old, I don’t want to be square
What if I’m a bad role model?
What if I’m scared?
And I don’t think I could live up to
The mother that my mother was
If I always just feel so unprepared

I might be too weak to fall in love
And I might be too much for everyone

All these explosive emotions I’m holding
But you’ll never know ’em
‘Cause I put ’em in a box in the ocean
All these explosive emotions I’m holding
But you’ll never know
‘Cause I put ’em in a box in the ocean
Yeah I put ’em in a box in the ocean

What if they forget about all I’ve done?
If I built it up just to be no one
I make my own expectations
For every single situation
Then break my own heart when it all falls

I might be too weak to fall in love
And, I might be too much for everyone

All these explosive emotions I’m holding
But you’ll never know ’em
‘Cause I put ’em in a box in the ocean
All these explosive emotions I’m holding
But you’ll never know
‘Cause I put ’em in a box in the ocean
Yeah I put ’em in a box in the ocean

Things you’ll never hear me say
Lock ’em up to keep them safe
Forget ’em let ’em float away
Things you’ll never hear me say
Lock them up to keep them safe
Forget ’em let ’em float away
Let ’em float away

All these explosive emotions I’m holding
But you’ll never know ’em
‘Cause I put ’em in a box in the ocean
All these explosive emotions I’m holding
But you’ll never know
‘Cause I put ’em in a box in the ocean
Yeah I put ’em in a box in the ocean
Yeah I put ’em in a box in the ocean
