Shoebox Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
A key in the door, a step on the floor,
A note on the table, and a meal in the micro
Upstairs I'm in bed, please make sure that you're fed
If you're taking a shower, you can borrow my bathrobe
And when I'm asleep I dream you move in next week
I crumple the note and save it to put inside
Verse 2
My shoe box (shoe box)
My shoe box of lies
Verse 3
It's under my bed, it's never been read
It's in with my school stuff and my mom never cleans there
From my first little fib, when I still wore a bib
To my latest attempt at pretending I'm someone
Who's not seventeen, and doesn't know what you mean
When talk turns to single malts, or stilton, or
Verse 4
My shoe box (shoe box)
My shoe box of lies
My shoe box (shoe box)
Shoe box of lies
Verse 5
Did somebody tell you
This is how it's supposed to be?
Or did you just find it
And you don't want any more from me?
Verse 6
Was it something I said, or was it something you read
That's making me think that I should never have come here
I can offer you lies, I can tell you goodbye,
I can tell you I'm sorry, but I can't tell the truth, dear
And what if I could? Would it do any good?
You'll still never get to see the contents of
Verse 7
My shoe box (shoe box)
Shoe box of lies
My shoe box (shoe box)
My shoe box of lies
Verse 8
You're so nineteen-ninety
And it's nineteen-ninety-four
Leave this world behind me
'Cause you don't want me anymore
Verse 9
Lie
Lie
