Paper Airplane – Alison Krauss


Paper Airplane

I’ve put it all behind me
Nothin’ left to do or doubt
Some may say
But every silver linin’
Always seems to have a cloud
That comes my way
Anticipated pleasure
Or unexpected pain
No choice I feel
Love is hard to measure
Hidden in the rain
That’s why you’ll find me
Here all alone and still wonderin’ why
Waitin’ inside for the cold to get colder
And here where it’s clear that I’ve wasted my time
Hopin’ to fly ‘cause it’s almost over now
People come together
People go their own way
Love conquers few
And I’ll do whatever
I’ll say what I need to say
Just not for you
How many days should I smile with a frown
‘Cause you’re not around with the sun on your shoulders?
And how many nights must I wake up alone
And know in my soul that it’s almost over now?
Love is like a paper airplane
Flyin’ in the folded dent
Ridin’ high, dippin’ low
But innocence is fair game
I’m hopin’ I can hold it in
Our love will die, I know
