Ward, Tyler - Yellow Boxes Lyrics




Spend your whole life chasing dreams
Went from sidelines to major leagues
And now they say
"You finally made it you must be happy"
But on dark nights
When you're counting sheep
And the good times are fast asleep
You think "I'm ok, just maintain it I should be happy"

But when five years pass
The same things don't make you laugh
And now ten years go by alone

So maybe it's time to go home
Pack it up and leave ‘em a note
Saying "I don't wanna do this alone"
So go pack those yellow boxes
And make your way home
When everything is out of control
And you feel like you have traded your soul
For gold pack those yellow boxes
And make your way home

Pack ‘em up pack ‘em up
Yellow boxes
Pack ‘em up pack ‘em up
Yellow boxes
Pack ‘em up pack ‘em up
You can always
Pack those yellow boxes

So you can spend your whole life
How it's supposed to be
And love right unconditionally
And you can say
I found a way ‘cause I got my family

Don't let five years pass
Time you'll never get back
Don't let ten years go by alone

So maybe it's time to go home
Pack it up and leave ‘em a note
Saying "I don't wanna do this alone"
So go pack those yellow boxes
And make your way home
When everything is out of control
And you feel like you have traded your soul
For gold pack those yellow boxes
And make your way home
Ohh ahh
You can always
Pack ‘em up pack ‘em up
Yellow boxes
Pack ‘em up pack ‘em up
Pack ‘em up pack ‘em up
Yellow boxes
Pack those yellow boxes

Home, pack it up
And leave ‘em a note sayin'
"I don't wanna be here alone"
So can you pack those yellow boxes
And get yourself home
When everything is out of control
And you feel like you have traded your soul
For gold pack those yellow boxes
And make your way home

Pack ‘em up pack ‘em up
Pack ‘em up pack ‘em up
Make your way home
Pack ‘em up pack ‘em up
You can always
Pack those yellow boxes
Make your way home

    Tyler, when i listen to your songs, i can see your history through them. That's absolutely amazing, 'cause it creates a strong conection between you and your public and that's real stuff right there. So, congratulations. The combination of "dashes" and "yellow boxes", for me, makes total sense and show how you've grown as a human. Thank you for sharing your music. You're making sense to the world. THANK YOU!

    I remember listening to this when it first came out and I was still subbed to this channel but I changed my acc since then and I completely forgot to check it out again later. I still see his tweets and Instagram stories/posts and I always forget to go back and subscribe again. I've finally remembered now and I went straight to this and nostalgia broke me. <3

  50. Mac Monroy

    what genre are these kind of songs? is thus cobsidered as modern country?

    Amy

    I consider this album to be inspirational... And Christian-driven in some cases, but not all of Tyler's music falls into that category.

    Hakan Şimşek

    those standard cardboard boxes you put your stuff in when moving.

    Lianna Grace

    But why is yellow boxes so significant? Like, the whipped album is called yellow boxes...

    Hakan Şimşek

    i guess it's kind of a good symbol to "leaving, moving on". 

    Lianna Grace

    Oh, okay, thanks!

  85. Quixxx.

    You're such an inspiration to me, and you have been since I heard your music a year ago! Thanks man! Keep up with the work you do! It's very moving!

  86. Jessica Sophie Belanger

    I was listening this song a few mouth ago, when I moved from my parent's to a new city. I never realize I would miss my family, because it's really not my type. but now I can't spend a day without crying because I just want to go home. Sadly I can't because of what I am studing in. I wish it will pass and that I'll feel free again. So instead of going back, I'm listening to this song again and I will keep repeating myself "what if it works?"
    Thanks Tyler to be such a wonderfull person and to stay true and honest. You are precious for a lot of us.

    Lots of love

  87. Fhadz Mawali

    i love this song

  88. Serena Chee

    +Tyler Ward Music This song really hit me. I'm from Arizona and I flew across the country to Washington, DC for my Master's. I flew alone, not knowing anyone. I thought, "it's okay, this will be my future career,  I must be happy." One year later, I was slowly discovering that I wasn't happy there. I withdrew from my program, packed up my bags, and went home. While I'm still discovering what the right path is for me, I am happily employed at two part-time jobs.

     --God closes one door and opens another. God has a plan for me and I just have to be patient.

     --Tyler, I met you at the San Francisco pop up concert last week and, although I was late, it was wonderful. Your music is inspiring and so heartfelt. I love you!

  89. 珺儀

    This song let me feel relax,comfortable.maybe we always started thinking more after working many years. Money is most important thing? maybe not i guess...Much more things that money can't exchange. e.g. family,love...

  90. Fatoo Mohammed

    One of my best song
    Tyler Ward ♥ I'm a new Huuuuge Fan ♥♥
    Keep Going....

  91. James Spavelko

    Anyone else think that the chorus is almost identical to a country song called "Smoke by A thousand Horses"? good song, just wondering if it was just me!

  92. Taylor Miller

    One of the best song's I ever heard you create Tyler! I also love the rest of the album as well, I listen to it everyday! :) You are amazing, never stop making your dreams come true! P.S I don't think you should get with "Taylor" she's not your type. (And beside's she blew you off anyway! Sorry didn't mean to add insult to injury!)

  93. Hyacinth L.

    I FELL INLOVE WHIT THIS SONG! <3

  94. Sunshine and Daisies

    it makes me feel all the feels 😭😭
