​Paper Town

This song is by A Rough Sketch and appears on the album Stranded And Suspended (2006).

Maybe these days could mean so much more
With eyes wide open and feet on the floor
This room would not seem so blue
Painted with blank stares at pictures that have lost their cause

And the blinds are always closed
Too block out the cold stares
The phone is oh so still
And waiting to break the silence in the air

And I'm huddled over papers
Creating a world
To escape the feelings that I once loved
With words on every building
These landmarks will reveal
All of the tiny people
That have ruined me
Over the years

I've had so many chances to get this right
But Id just pass by you directing my sight
At the tiles on the floor at your reflection
Because it's so hard to grow up when you're all alone

Sitting in my room this loneliness has overtaken me
All I have is this pen, so I am

Huddled over papers
Creating a world
To escape the feelings that I once loved
With words on every building
These landmarks will reveal
All of the tiny people
