Blue Paper

Album: Fragrant World (2012)
  • She used to clean up nicely, play dress up
    Now she's throwing her clothes away, says she needs the added space
    She used to walk on concrete, now the sidewalk
    Isn't green enough for her, says she misses Mother Earth
    She keeps on telling me, I'm not made for this
    So they never give you the time of day but do you really care
    Oh no, I don't buy it for a second
    Now you say you're finished up with the finer life of trawlers and yet
    Oh no, I don't buy it for a second
    Now you say you can't find the time to figure out you left ammends
    Oh no, I don't buy it for a second
    Now you say you want peace and quiet but could you really stand
    Before your halcyon days were numbered
    Weather would become dark sects as, in the desert
    You don't choke on the winter's end, and the sky isn't even there
    You don't need to leave the house when, it's a palace

    And there's no one to offend, take a walk every now and then
    She keeps on telling me, I'm not made for this
    So they never give you the time of day but do you really care
    Oh no, I don't buy it for a second
    Now you say you're finished up with the finer life of trawlers and yet
    Oh no, I don't buy it for a second
    Now you say you can't find the time to figure out you left ammends
    Oh no, I don't buy it for a second
    Now you say you want peace and quiet but could you really stand
    Before your halcyon days were numbered, that's another, old problem
    Spin me on your mirror
    The other side looks greener
    Write it on blue paper
    Think about it later
    Spin me on your mirror
    The other side looks greener
    Write it on blue paper
    Think about it later Writer/s: Anand Mathew Wilder, Christopher E Keating
