Hopscotch Boxes

You are a hopscotch box,
You're just a hopscotch box,
Once I land on you, I'm on the move,
And then I'm already gone,

Tossing stones, and throwing coins, to see where luck would land me,
You were alone, I came along, to see if you would take me,

And then it was revealed, I was just a third wheel, and I was looking like a fool,
And how I did feel, but my heart, it will heal, it's my ego that's being abused,

But I slip on a smile,
And I lace up my Vans,
And I look to the sky,
And it tells me I am,
Going to be fine,

You are a hopscotch box,
You're just a hopscotch box,
Once I land on you, I'm on the move,
And then I'm already gone,

So much for soul baring and giving you me, so much for caring and so much for love,
You were just a temporary high, darling, don't get it wrong, baby, I'm just playing tough,

I'm protecting my conscience, I am guarding my heart, I won't let you in again,
But I'm not dwelling on doom, not holed up in my room, I'm not waiting for the end,

But I try out a laugh,
And I button my shirt,
And I've got love left,
And I know everything will work,
Out just fine,

You are a hopscotch box,
You're just a hopscotch box,
Once I land on you, I'm on the move,
And then I'm already gone,

I dont know what you used me for, I don't know why you played pretend,
I know you're not the one for me, I know you're not part of my plans,
Anymore,
It wasn't right, it isn't still, I'm fine with you toeing other lines,
You were just, a temporary high, I was with you to pass the time,
That's what I tell myself at night,
Still,
I'll be alright,

I was a hopscotch box,
I was just a hopscotch box,
You made me fall, you made me care,
And once you've had your way with me,
You're already on the next best square.

And when you're gone, be gone completely and don't look back,
And when I'm gone, I'll leave feeling better, I've got better people to see,
And when you're skipping on I'm counting on you not to step on my tracks,
And I won;t lose balance, I won't be challenged, by this,
Because you're still just a hopscotch box to me
Because you're just a hopscotch box to me,

Hopscotch
