I took the picture and the notes that you wrote me
I took your smile and the color of your eyes
The feel of your hands around mine
I took the butterflies that you gave me
How we met and all my favorite memories of you
You and me
And then I pushed it away, folded, sealed up in a little box
Placed it on my shelf to be forgot
Now I can hear, but I can't breathe cause it's too

Too Much, too much
Gotta push it away now
Too much get it outta my head and I can't stop thinking about you
You're such a tease showing up in my dreams
I'm begging you to stop tearing at my seams
Set me Free
Too much stop my stomach from turning
Don't look at me and take the quivering from my knees so I can breathe

Sitting in the dark listening to our song and I see your eyes
You're everywhere I go lingering in my mind to my surprise
Don't get to feel this way now that it's over but I cant shake this mistake
Your mistake, my mistake cause you weren't a mistake and now it's like

Too Much, too much
Gotta push it away now
Too much get it outta my head and I can't stop thinking about you
You're such a tease showing up in my dreams
I'm begging you to stop tearing at my seams
Set me Free
Too much stop my stomach from turning
Don't look at me and take the quivering from my knees so I can breathe

Put on a pretty good act you know but you gotta be blind if you can't see what you're doing to me
Can't bear to see you not by my side so I gotta keep you locked up inside that box cause it's too much

Too Much, too much
Gotta push it away now
Too much get it outta my head and I can't stop thinking about you
You're such a tease showing up in my dreams
I'm begging you to stop tearing at my seams
Set me Free
Too much stop my stomach from turning
Don't look at me and take the quivering from my knees so I can breathe

The author's comments:
This song was inspired by my "ex boyfriend box". I like to keep old things that have sentimental value to me, but right after a break up it can be hard to have reminders around so I take all of those thigns and put them together in a box. I soon realized that it wsn't only the tangible reminders that were difficult to deal with but the intangible ones as well. This song is about taking all of those things and locking them away so that I can start over.
