LyricsEdit

Well I did it now
Oh I did it now
The box said do not open under pain of death
It had my initials there where
I signed my initials on it
On that white box

I saw initials there
Do not open under pain of death
But I opened it anyway
I died anyway
I died anyway
So I come back to stay
Come back to stay
Lord knows I love you anyway
Lord knows I love you anyway
Hey
