I cut a hole in a box so my head would fit right through
I punched two holes in the sides so I can reach for you
I stepped right through the base so i could walk towards you
I tied a bow around my face so you know this was for you.

I sleep in a square little hole every night when i go to bed
circle girl triangle man are kicking boxes in my head
i am lost you are found these four corners just don't seem sound
maybe we could use some glue so I'll stay this way for you
