Paper Heart

I can feel in the evening air all the words I want to say
But I can tell as you turn to leave that they wouldn’t make you stay
Overhead the lights come on and suddenly I see
That glow is gonna guide you home, wherever that may be

What use is a paper heart
When you’re stuck in the rain, stuck in the rain
Cause all the love that I hold inside
Feel it washing away, washing away
Let it fall, take it all cause I’m so tired of feeling everything
So damn me and my paper heart
In this pouring rain

I could watch as you fade away
But I hold on to the pain
In these arms that just let you go
On these lips that said your name
Couldn’t know it would hurt this hard
To hear you close that door
So punch a hole in my paper heart
Cause I don’t need it anymore
