The Sound of Paul

from by Kleenex Girl Wonder



What you said hit close to home But nevertheless, you know it hurts Sitting on the lower level I keep echoing your words: "Just get your things and go. Forget the things you know." The lovebirds do not sit, they've flown away Pages of the scrapbook blown away The structure has collapsed And both of us are trapped The nest is filled with crows But a rose is a rose is a rose is a rose is a rose And so it goes Cause no one really knows So I'll be listening to the sound of Paul Reverberating through the hall I wonder if you cared at all It don't matter I got rock and roll And rock and roll's the only thing I need The songs were not rehearsed The drums were recorded first My phone is off the hook My heart is an open book And look, here comes the end I can't read it again But you'll always be there in the back of my mind Singing your songs or my songs, no matter what kind If you hurt me again, all I'll do is rewind So do your own thing but just know you can find me Listening to the sound of Paul...
