lyrics

call me a paper doll, this year has cut and scattered me to pieces;
call me a time machine and i will bring you memories of spain;
talk to me of carousels and darling, i will whirl you round in circles,
call me an alien and i will know it's true, you know i am not
of your world,

there's not room for both of us in this town, i can be such a fair weather friend
oh and you refuse to be embarassed, hero, you're unwilling to pretend
but you throw your tender rope to me when cawing crows are
heckling round my bends - once again -
keep your eyes on your own paper, dear, lest your story get
shouted out again -

oh and history, forever will she be and man, we got a lot
lovingly carved into our bones, then left out on your roof to rot -
i don't know you, so don't call me names, it was never a choice
i've made a new home with the wolves and i'll make
my animal noises

she took me by surprise, since when have you been so averse to reason?
only a year ago her eyes were clear, it could be this just
hasn't been her season.
all our sighing spells and broken bells and cloying sick itineraries,
fuck them. i miss you for the longest time,
but letting go was the key to the kingdom..

so if you're looking for something everlasting, you can
get gone from my road.
'cause the fact remains: i'm not a princess, and you've
known for some time now that you are not a toad.
our mouths were nearly always overfull, and on some
hazy afternoons they overfowed..

oh and, history, forever will she breathe,
and man we got a lot. lovingly carved into our bones, then
left out on your roof to rot..
well, you don't know me, don't call me names, it was never a choice
i've found my true home with the wolves, and i'll make
my animal noises ©
