The Paper Kites Breathing Fighting Love

Your love isn’t mad

If it doesn’t scream at night

Feel it givin’ in just to go with, with somebody

So I can bring your body to try

I can’t help when you play this song

I can’t speak when you sing all wrong

I can’t sleep ’cause we’re laying on something

Your love is near it to covet mine

Breathing, fighting love

Love

Crawl up in the night

Lost in, in the shade of the night

Give me your indifferent feelings for the taking

So I can bring your body to life

Go, go, go with your stereo self

Oh, it’s all right when you let me down

I’m a supernova before I fade out

Your love is near it to covet mine

Breathing, fighting, love

Love

Breathing, fighting love

Love

Breathing, fighting love

Love

The Paper Kites Tin Lover

Where we rest with water

It’s raining all day long

And I don’t know how we

Fall into these holes

When the cold is over

Pull me out the ground

And I don’t know how we

Fall into these holes

The Paper Kites Paint

We were trying, but we’re trying no more

It’s cold on the floor, cold on the floor

This house has never been the same as before

It’s never felt warm, never felt warm

There’s something moving through the windows and walls

I’ve seen it before, seen it before

You left me living with a lingering soul,

how little you know, how little you know

We were standing at the foot of a path

I had to go back, had to go back

I chose to travel as a lonely man

So much that I lacked, so much that I lacked

I’m always wishing I was walking that road

It’s something I hold, something I hold

I take it with me all the places I go

How little you know, how little you know

I only eat to fill me up

I only sleep to rest

I need a love just like you gave

I haven’t found it yet, found it yet

See where I am is where I’m wanting to be,

I know what I need, know what I need

And there are many different places to see

I know how to dream, know how to dream

Still there’s a wound and I’m moving slow

Though it don’t show, though it don’t show

I’ve got a hole where nothing grows,

How little you know little you know

I only eat to fill me up

I only sleep to rest

I need a love just like you gave

I haven’t found it yet, found it yet

Maybe we’d marry and we’d work it out fine,

In some other time, some other time

And we are happy when I’m walking that line,

It’s all in my mind, all in my mind

I paint the ceiling so that nobody knows

I cover it slow, cover it slow

It’s like you’ve never even met me before,

How little I show, little I show

The Paper Kites Malleable Beings

We fell this time

With a dying grace

Though we’re malleable beings,

Not enough, it seems

And don’t lay tired

Knew we both would break

Though we’re malleable beings

Not enough, it seems

And maybe were wrong to let it go

Maybe we were wrong to keep it so long

We were only dust and fragile clay

Flying far, miles away

We’ll close our eyes

And erase our minds

Though we’re malleable beings,

Not enough, it seems

And don’t lay tired

Knew we both would break

Though we’re malleable beings,

Not enough, it seems

And maybe were wrong to let it go

Maybe we were wrong to keep it so long

We were only dust and fragile clay

Flying far, miles away

And maybe were wrong to let it go

Maybe we were wrong to keep it so long

We were only dust and fragile clay

Flying far, miles away

The Paper Kites Willow Tree March

You fall through the trees

And you pray with your knees on the ground

For the things that you need

With your lust and your greed weighing down

And you weaken your love

And you hold it above your head

Success is a song of the heart, not a song of your bed

And we all still die

Yeah we all still die

What will you leave behind?

Oh we all still die

You fall through the trees

And you pray with your knees on the ground

For the things that you need

With your lust and your greed weighing down

And you weaken your love

And you hold it above your head

Success is a song of the heart, not a song of your bed

And we all still die

Yeah we all still die

What will you leave behind?

Oh we all still die

Marching away from the stream

This tree it will die without leaves

Marching away from the stream

This tree it will die without leaves

This tree it will die

This tree it will die

And we all still die

Yeah we all still die

What will you leave behind?

Oh we all still die

And we all still die

Yeah we all still die

What will you leave behind?

Oh we all still die

The Paper Kites Deep Burn Blue

I know it seems alright

To just wait till the feelings right

But I can see it in your eyes

A shade of blue and a signal fire

You like the glow of the downtown lights

The colours on the street when it rains all night

But I can’t give you what you want

If you don’t want it from me baby

It’s a deep burn blue

(Burning right through you)

It’s a deep burn blue

(Burning right through you)

It’s a deep blue burning right through you

I know that people talk

Shake their heads at the way you walk

On the street, in the park

You say it’s cause we’re the same in the dark

You like the sound of a pink moon cry

Lying on the floor as the day goes by

But time alone means nothing

If you can’t escape the hurt you’re feeling

It’s a deep burn blue

(Burning right through you)

It’s a deep burn blue

(Burning right through you)

It’s a deep blue burning right through you

And it burns right through you

The Paper Kites Tenenbaum

You’re a bitter kind

I love you so

Sour is my mind

From what you sow

How I let it grow

Call them radiant, call them mothers eyes

Home’s a narrow space for me to find

Your beguiling state and endless heights

I’m just not moving right

Just not moving right when it’s just not you

Under neon lights

Where I wake

I’m not feeling right

So they say

Rough kind of a day

Don my clothing, robes of ageing white

Rattled windows on the old green line

Do you feel it like I hope you might

I’m just not seeing right

Just not seeing right when it’s just not you

The Paper Kites It’s Not Like You

It’s not like you

To not be around

Cars drivin’ by, they

Don’t sound the same

Still stay up late

And don’t get much sleep

Watch late night movies

I know what you say

It’s not like you

It’s not like you

It’s not like you

But I’ll keep trying

Might go downtown

With Charlotte next week

She says that we’ll just

Try take it slow

Alive like a fool

And I drink like a man

Meet like a shy boy

She understands

It’s not like you

It’s not like you

It’s not like you

And I’ll keep trying

But how we live

How we live

Really live

And I’ll keep trying

The Paper Kites Cold Kind Hand

Hold the ties that you’re given

Validate my time

Spent defining your rhythm

Spent defending mine

And I feel like I’m calling for an answer

And the reason is waiting for a change

Move with it, take me as your comfort

Now I plead for love

With a cold kind hand

Overthrow indecision

Lacerate your lie

Up, around is your vision

And I know my pride

Won’t you hear when I’m calling for an answer?

With the season it’s begging for a change

Move with it, take me as your comfort

Now I plead for love

With a cold kind hand

Running to crawl

Hold any motion at all

And I take it knowing is more than you’re giving

Taste you like I want to

Like I want you now

Hold the ties that you’re given

Validate my time

Spent defining your rhythm

Spent defending mine

And I feel like I’m calling for an answer

And the reason is waiting for a change

Move with it, take me as your comfort

Plead for love with a cold kind hand

With a cold kind hand

With a cold kind hand

With a cold kind hand

Taste you like I want to

Take me like I want you now

The Paper Kites Portrait 19

Oh what tidings acted heal

Melancholy cant hurt here

I wont give you any tears

Your own one day your own muse

Clarity in spoken truth

Give me nothing give me you

I hate to see you go

I hate to see you go

Oh could I let you go

Should not

Friend of mine

Direction of a different kite

Whether with me whether somewhere new

Know that I’ll be seeing you

I’ll be seeing you

I’ll be seeing you

I’ll be seeing you

You are there
