PAPER – Youʼre under the water, trying to pull me under. I reach for you. I reach for you. You can throw it all at me; I will not give you up. I can handle all your pain take it as it comes. I love you right but you make me feel like. Paper you cut right through, Iʼm stuck like glue to you. Paper your darkness pulls, I loose control again. Drawing every bit of my truth color me in with your blue. Paper you cut right through a thousand words for you. I know I wasnʼt a part of you plan, I know you think that youʼre being a man tell me to leave you alone, tell me I would be so better off, but you donʼt understand. I cannot leave you baby, I cannot leave you, but you make me feel like. Paper you cut right through Iʼm stuck like glue to you. Paper your darkness pulls I loose.
