Lyrics
I got me some worries
I got me some fears
I got lots of regrets
and I got too many tears
I put them all in a box
and I will just let them be.
Let the box hold my troubles
while you carry me

Carry me, carry me
Carry me
Let the box hold my troubles
while you carry me

Too often we strive for perfection
instead of just tryin' to be whole.
Sometimes we lose our direction
and we cannot find our way home.
I put my troubles in a box
and I will just let them be.
God will carry my soul
and that's good enough for me.

Carry me, carry me,
Carry me
God will carry my soul
and that's good enough for me.

It's been so sad to watch you disappear
Vanish more and more with each passing year
I knew you on a better day
before your innocence was stripped away.
So just put your troubles in a box now baby
and just let them be.
Let the box hold your troubles and say
"Please God, carry me"

Carry me, carry me,
Carry me
Put your troubles in a box and say,
"Please God carry me."

Carry me, carry me,
Carry me
Put your troubles in a box and say,
"Please God carry me."
The problem right now is that I'm just tryin' to hold on
To the memory of somebody that has been long gone
And the problem right now is that I feel so out of control
Gotta get down on my knees and pray I can let this go

This box holds my trouble but this box don't hold me
This box holds my trouble but this box don't hold me
This box, it ain't me, no, this box is not me, no
This box, it ain't me, no, this box is not me
This box holds my trouble but this box don't hold me
This box holds my trouble but God will carry me
God will carry me, God will always carry me
God will carry me, say God will carry me
This box holds my trouble but this box don't hold me
This box holds my troubles but God will carry me.
Go will always carry me!

Carry me, carry me,
Carry me
Put your troubles in a box and say,
"Please God carry me."

Carry me, carry me,
Carry me
Put your troubles in a box and say,
"Please God carry me."

I got me some worries
I got me some fears
I got lots of regrets
and I got too many tears
I put them all in a box
and I will just let them be.
Let the box hold my troubles
while you carry me
