Lyrics - "Paper Mache"

Paper Mache

 

When I get thinking about blood being something that you’re born with

My days wake me up like funny little warnings

Not to mess with what you’re given

When you’re busy building something

You can’t speed it up or slow it down enough

 

When everybody’s taking their hearts out to be framed

Here I am pulling at my edges hoping my name fades

From this paper, paper, paper mache

Leave my paper heart to blame

I’ll build it better when I’m better one day

 

When I get thinking about time spent growing into something

Just how fast some people, people out there must be running

And I see everything, but I don’t know anything quite yet

So I get tired and go to bed

 

When everybody’s taking their dreams out to be framed

I’m over my head in fear and bedsheets letting the colors fade

Dreams like paper, paper, paper mache

Leave my paper dreams to fade

I’ll build ‘em better when I’m better one day

 

How much do we go building

How much do we go finding

Should I be listening and following

Or should I be deciding

‘Cause on the days when the glue don’t stick

That’s when you start looking at your life

Like an art project

 

And you say my heart

It don’t need to be made of paper, of paper

There’s no paper mache

And my dreams, they don’t need to be made

Of paper, paper, paper mache

Leave my paper heart to blame

I’ll build it better when I’m better one day

I’ll build it better when I’m better one day
