Tamar Braxton - Empty Boxes Lyrics




No, oh, oh
No, no, no, no
No, no, oh, no

Empty boxes is all I ever get
Just so grateful for the gifts, should've known by shaking it
There was nothing there for me
But to my surprise, as the ribbon hit the floor
I just truly could not believe there was nothing underneath
Don't know what I was looking for
Empty boxes can be so pretty to the eye
Could be much be lighter than you think
It will knock you off your feet
To know it was all a lie

You never know, when it goes so you better fight
Let it go when you're wrong, so you better try
Then you learn, you can't feel everything

Empty boxes
They're all over the floor
I'll think of every little thing that you ever did to me
I'll back it up and cry no more
Please return to sender
Because I no longer live here anymore
You'll never find my new address and I pray you'll do your best
To find a space for you to stay

You never know, when it goes so you better fight
Let it go when you're wrong, then you better try
Then you learn that you can't feel everything

So keep your empty boxes
Your lying boxes
Your cheating on me boxes
I can't take no more
I promise you boxes
I'm in love with you boxes
So empty, so empty, oh
Everything you said to me, you don't mean
So take your empty boxes
Help me, I don't want it back
Oh, take your empty box

  20. Latisha Ray

    This song makes me feel amazing at first. Then it makes me think about when I crashed. I could've made it to continue to listen to Empty Boxes in my Blue 2005 Chrysler 300 🚘. I watched two Cadillac Escalades split by Bishop K. Gormnon's church. It was like there was an imaginary fountain there for the song.

  23. Jessi _ Robin

    “Empty boxes are all I ever get , just so grateful for the gift , I shoulda know by shaking it ...”

    This type of pain is a pain women learn when we are discovering our selves and learning that we need to fight more for what we deserve and stop loving off of a persons potential ... 💔🙌🏽 Queen TAMAR knows my heart chilleee 🖤

  81. Quentin Carey

    The Grammys are rigged! Tamar deserved to atleast be nominated! Hell this whole album deserves to win a Grammy

    Quentin Carey

    Tamara Myers not this year

    Quentin Carey

    Tamara Myers I was referring to this album in general

    Alice. Jenkins

    I agree with you the Grammy are rigged

    T C

    They’re not rigged, not in instance. You have to submit your work to the academy for consideration. Vincent and Tamar were going a bad divorce at the time and were separated. Neither were probably in their good head spaced to even think about Grammy Awards. But she’s has their attention because they’re not shy to acknowledge or nominate her.

  82. Coco.DarkNluvli. Minaj

    This is my favorite song from her thus far! This was my first time ever hearing it and it just melted my heart and my soul I felt every word I feel every note! I love you Tay Tay #TamartianForever

  83. Eric Morrisey

    So beautiful. I know Toni is so proud.

  84. Eric Morrisey

    Tamar. This needs to be a single. I know ive listened to this song on repeat at least 20×

    Senclair Hayes

    Eric Morrisey 💯💯💯for me

    Nissi Copeland

    Eric Morrisey, ditto, me too!!! Such an emotionally, beautiful song.😢😓😪 Empty Boxes, a moving ballad that should be sung as her anthem for this album.

  85. Jordan Bedgood

    This is true pain... In my opinion, it wraps up the title of the album.

  86. Monkey Brown

    Bitch, Toni can't hit these notes and y'all know it

  87. Denise Williams

    Love this Album from beginning To end will be getting it asap. beautifully done Tamar. you can sang Yo face off chick. God's continued Blessings.

  88. Rayray Little
