The box sites on the bridge
The crowd is waiting
The chains are locked across my chest
There's no heart breaking

I've done this show a thousand times
This trick's so easy
As they lower me into your waters
There's no escaping

There's a secret passage out of here
But I don't want to reappear
I just want to stay with you in here

In Houdini's box
Close the lid and tie the knot
Houdini's box

The clock ticks by the bed
I hear you breathing
I should be out the door
But I'm not leaving

I've still the scars from my last escape
I nearly drowned beneath the lake
Stayed down too long dreaming about you

In Houdini's box
Close the lid and tie the knot
Houdini's box
In Houdini's box, Houdini's box

I'd take such good care of you
I'd brush your hair, untie your shoes
There's nothing in the world I wouldn't do

In Houdini's box, in Houdini's box
Seal the lid and tie the knot
In Houdini's box, Houdini's box
Houdini's box , Houdini's box
Houdini's box

The box sites on the bridge
The crowd's still waiting
