Track Name: Paperweight
*verse 1*
Swallowed another dose of bitter medicine
A better man might cry
The weight of written words falling to the floor
I took it as a sign

So tell me 'bout the times when we were young & dumb again
I wanna step right back
Sleeping in ain't never been as nice
But I guess that's a fact

Paperweight you set me straight
I'm leveled by your words
Told myself that she meant well
But, baby, it got worse

Paperweight (x2)

*verse 2*
Just took another look into a bleeding heart
It's not my finest hour
Can't afford anymore time than I had spent
Ain't gotta come around

So sink a little deeper than you ever thought you could
I wanna step right back


Her face inside a frame
Looks like she's here to stay
But in some other way
I guess it's all the same


Paperweight (x4)
