This is not me
I was never cut out for this scenery
I’m just a paper boy
Your crushed paper toy
And nothing has changed
Only paper landscapes ripped and rearranged
By an angry girl
This torn paper world

If only I knew that your spark
Would set fire to my paper heart
Paper heart

I live by the sea
Not the one you’re thinking
But the sea inside of me
It’s just a paper dream
To you unseen
But you shake the ground
You rearrange the sunsets and terrorize this town
And it’s you I blame
When I crash paper planes

If only I knew that your spark
Would set fire to my paper heart
Paper heart

If only I knew from the start
You’d tear right through my paper heart
Paper heart
