Lyrics To Paper Prince

Della Mae


Why must you wait?
Why must you wait?
Why must you wait for the sky to fall?
Your brittle fingers, your eyes i recall
Your shy heart and your stone walls,
Why must i wait when you have not called?

You've never been kissed,
Never been kissed
Never been kissed by the paper prince
You light your fires of words on pyres
You'll never be what your mind desires
You only imagine what it is that you have missed

And its gone long gone
In the fearless hum,
Of a lonely song

I am a child,
I am a child
I am a child of waiting
The tears will fall upon my strings,
I'll bow my head and my voice will sing
I never knew how tightly i could cling

We never can change
Never can change
Never can change or wash the stains
But who am i to hold the reigns?
The stead i ride she has no name

And its gone long gone
In the fearless hum
Of a lonely song

No one will know
No one will know
No one will know how the end of it goes
The story that has already been told
Our eyes were closed through the rhythm and prose
We will wake as the last line closes

And its gone long gone
In the fearless hum
Of a lonely song
