Rise Against - Paper Wings lyrics


ad
One last thing I beg you please, just before you go
I've watched you fly on paper wings, halfway around the world
Until they burned up in the atmosphere and sent you spiralling down
Landing somewhere far from here with no one else around
To catch you falling down
And I'm looking at you now

And I can't tell if you're laughing
Between each smile there's a tear in your eye
There's a train leaving town in an hour
It's not waiting for you, and neither am I

'Swing for the fences, son' - he must have told you once
But that was a conversation you took nothing from, so raise
Your glass now, let's celebrate exactly what you've done
Just put off another day of knowing where you're from
You can catch up with yourself
If you run

And I can't tell if you're laughing
Between each smile there's a tear in your eye
There's a train leaving town in an hour
It's not waiting for you, and neither am I

Is this the life that you lead
Or the life that's lead for you?
Will you take the road, that's been laid out before you?
Will we cross paths somewhere else tonight?
Somewhere else tonight

And I can't tell if you're laughing
Between each smile there's a tear in your eye
There's a train leaving town in an hour
It's not waiting for you, and neither am I
[2x]
