Paper Walls

Album: Paper Walls (2007)
  • (Let's burn a hole so we can climb out
    Of these paper walls and this empty house
    Don't listen too close; their words are like guns
    With bullets that fly and kill what you've won)

    Let's burn a hole so we can climb out
    Of these paper walls and this empty house
    Where the only thing that's real
    Is visions we have of ten years ago
    Of stars in the sky and us down below

    With streets and East Coast lines
    We kept this scene alive

    Here I am, still holding on to this dream we had
    Won't let go of it
    Hear me now, you will never be alone

    Don't listen too close; their words are like guns
    With bullets that fly and kill what you've won
    Some love to hate and some tell you lies
    So let's make a toast and kiss them goodbye
    We'll kiss them all goodbye

    Here I am, still holding on to this dream we had
    Won't let go of it
    Hear me now, you will never be alone
    Here I stand, won't turn back again
    Won't leave you, I know how hard it's been
    Hear me now, you will never be alone, yeah

    Let's take what hurts and write it all down
    On these paper walls and this empty house
    And when our ink runs out, we'll burn into the ground

    Here I am, still holding on to this dream we had
    Won't let go of it
    Hear me now, you will never be alone
    Here I stand, won't turn back again
    Won't leave you, I know how hard it's been
    Hear me now, you will never be alone, yeah Writer/s: LONGINEU WARREN III PARSONS, PETER MICHAEL MOSELY, RYAN MICHAEL MENDEZ, SEAN MICHAEL WELLMAN-MACKIN, WILLIAM RYAN KEY
