Charlie Winston – Boxes 🇬🇧

Charlie Winston is a gifted singer who succeeded in making a full hit album with Hobo in 2009.

Between folk, rock and pop music, all lyrics are impressed of poetry, beauty and power! As a rainbow, a complete range of feelings from joy to melancholy.

From the beginning, I was specially drawn to Boxes as a magnet even if I did not know yet about Parkinson disease. But today, my dear brain mate is giving a particular color to this song, as if the two words box and body joined together for becoming just one!

Whatever being sick or not … This is a wonderful and rich album, you really need to linger on!

Boxes

As a child with ocean eyes I smiled
At a world existing just for me
Without boxes, borders or boundaries
I built dreams
But like plastic building blocks
They were knocked down the ground
I grew up
To a world of compromise

Analysing what it means to dream

I don’t really wanna understand
Everything in my world
It spoils the fun for me
Come on darling you can take my hand
Blowing kisses in the wind
We’ll fly away in our dreams

From the boxes they’ll put us in

Who shall we propose to be?
Who am I supposed to be?
With these empty building blocks

I could make a thousand me’s

I don’t really wanna understand
Everything in my world
It spoils the fun for me
Come on darling you can take my hand
Blowing kisses in the wind
We’ll fly away in our dreams

From the boxes they’ll put us in

And I’m told we all fit in
But why should I belong to one thing
Who shall we propose to be?

Who am I supposed to be?

With these empty building blocks

I could make a thousand me’s

I don’t really wanna understand
Everything in my world
It spoils the fun for me
Come on darling you can take my hand
Blowing kisses in the wind
We’ll fly away in our dreams

From the boxes they’ll put us in
