The Little Blue Box

In a little blue box At the back of a drawer In my bedroom for none to see There is a small secret; A piece of broken heart In the shape of a tiny key The box is locked tight At the back of the drawer Where I hide my treasury Any who find it They will never know Just how much it means to me Years will now pass But it will always be there Reminding of what could never be For there was never a lock It was ever meant to unlock Sometimes a key is just a key
