Paperchained


If I could turn you to stone
I'd throw you in the river
Lock those memories in a box
And they would go in too
The river's flow would carry you
Away from me forever
I'd throw you in the water
And you would disappear

I'm paperchained to the sky
It's a dangerous way to be
This paper breaks so easily
And I keep falling down
And damaging another piece of me

I'm sorry for the struggle
You're going through
I'm sorry that I changed things
I stare until the edges glow
'till tears drown my view
I'd throw you in the water

I'm paper-chained to the sky
It's a delicate way to be
This paper breaks so easily
And I keep falling down
This paper breaks so easily
This paper breaks so easily

Wait
Promise you'll wait for me
Wait
And I'll meet you there
Lend me your silhouette
So I won't forget you
Wait
And I'll meet you there

I'm paperchained to the sky
It's a dangerous way to be
This paper breaks so easily
And I keep falling down
This paper breaks so easily
This paper breaks so easily

I'm paperchained
Paperchained
I'm paperchained
Paperchained
To the sky
This paper breaks so easily
This paper breaks so easily
This paper breaks so easily
