a piece of paper and a pen
you know I'm not one to offend
so when you shuffle me like that
you know I gotta fold you in

intoxicating paper flowers
sleep beside you for an hour
when I wake up all alone
I wonder how I lost my power

cross my heart and dot my i's
I sign my goodbye letter twice
and when the mailman finally comes
I see you've sent me a surprise

origami bird and cage
now I'll never be assuaged
and when I try to set it free
white streaks come rolling down the page

I don't quite know what else to do
I fake a weekend with the flu
alone with paper and a pen
I collate love letters to you
