Paperback Town Lyrics

imagine the space as it used to bethere were fields of cornthere were big oak treesbut a woman in a suit bulldozed it clearbuilt a concrete world full of crocodile tears
and we don't understandthat we all have a part in a government planit's a hard shotto be the people in the place that the world forgotin a paperback town
but I know I know I know we can be freethough no guardian angel up abovehas kept an eye on meand at night I listen to the sirens moanfor a broken heart from a broken homeso many people are so alonein a paperback town
and one day soon I'm gonna write it all downI live my life in a paperback town
oooh--in a paperback townoooh--in a paperback town
I'm gonna take my troublesgonna pack my bagsgonna fly my kite for a different flagI'll sing my songFrom the top of the hillwhen the night is coldand the wind is chill
'cos I don't understandwhy I should be part of another man's planit's a hard shotfor the people in the placethat the world forgotin a paperback town
live and die herein a paperback townwonder why herein a paperback town
but I know I know I know we can be free |
though no guardian angel up abovehas kept an eye on meand at night I listen to the rain fall downand I shake with the fear that we all will drownbut my words don't even make a soundin a paperback town
and one day soon I'm gonna write it all downI live my life in a paperback town
