My Paper Heart

Album: The All-American Rejects (2002)
  • Please just don't play with me My paper heart will bleed
    This wait for destiny won't do
    Be with me please I beseech you
    Simple things, that make you run a-way
    Catch you if I can

    Tears fall, down your face
    The taste, is something new
    Something that I know
    Moving on is, easiest when I am around you.

    So bottle up old love,
    And throw it out to sea,
    Watch it away as you cry
    Now a year has past
    The seasons go

    Please just don't play with me
    My paper heart will bleed
    This wait for destiny won't do
    Be with me please I beseech you
    Simple things, that make you run a-way
    Catch you if I can

    Waiting, day to day it goes through
    My lips, are sealed for her
    My tongue is,
    Tied to, a dream of being with you
    To settle for less, is not what I prefer

    Summer time, the nights they are so long
    The leaves fall down, and so do I into
    the arms of a friend
    Winter nights
    My bedside is cold, for I am gone
    And spring blossoms you to me Writer/s: NICK WHEELER, TYSON RITTER
