Get Rid Of The Advertisements

Paper And Tears
 
{First verse}
With paper and tears, she
said good-bye
She couldn't take anymore,
was sick of the lies
She said she hoped I like the
feeling of being alone
And of all those nights spent
waiting by the phone.
{Second Verse}
She said not to bother
searching, she'd hopped a
greyhound bus
Tears would be wasted in
memory of what we were
once
She'd spent too many lonely
nights lying in a cold bed
With paper and tears, that
was what she said.
{Chorus}
Paper and tears, that's all I
can see
Paper and tears got the best
of me
Paper and tears was how she
said good-bye
Paper and tears put an end to
my lies
{Third Verse}
Tonight it's me, alone in this
cold bed
Staring at the pillow where
she laid her head
Clinging to the paper filled
with her tears
Remembering the love we
had for years
{Chorus}
Paper and tears, that's all I
can see
Paper and tears got the best
of me
Paper and tears was how she
said good-bye
Paper and tears put an end to
my lies
