paper heart lyrics – david cook

“paper heart”

i can feel in the evening air all the words i want to say
but i can tell as you turn to leave that they wouldn’t make you stay
overhead the lights come on and suddenly i see
that glow is gonna guide you home wherever that may be

what use is a paper heart, when you’re stuck in the rain, stuck in the rain
’cause all the love that i hold inside; feel it washin’ away, washin’ away
let it fall, take it all, ’cause i’m so tired of feelin’ everything
so d*mn me and my paper heart in this pouring rain

i could watch as you fade away, but i hold on to the pain
in these arms that just let you go; on these lips that said your name
couldn’t know it would hurt this hard to hear you close that door

so punch a hole in my paper heart ’cause i don’t need it anymore

what use is a paper heart, when you’re stuck in the rain, stuck in the rain
’cause all the love that i hold inside; feel it washin’ away, washin’ away
let it fall, take it all, ’cause i’m so tired of feelin’ everything
so d*mn me and my paper heart in this pouring rain

’cause all the love that i hold inside; feel it washin’ away…

what use is a paper heart, when you’re stuck in the rain, stuck in the rain
’cause all the love that i hold inside; feel it washin’ away, washin’ away
let it fall, take it all, ’cause i’m so tired of feelin’ everything
so d*mn me and my paper heart in this pouring rain
