Paperback

Once you sit behind that desk
You’ll wish you’d had more fun
Instead you hide away
What are you running from?

You’ve known how I felt
Since our first kiss
Now you’re looking elsewhere
I’m not a water cooler gossip
I won’t be a stationery closet affair

You can leave
You can leave
As long as you know
I’m the one that let you go
I’m the one that let you go

Haven’t you seen the chaos?
The drama that surrounds you
How have you not noticed?
I’m the paperweight that grounds you

You’re a paperback novel
With a broken spine
The pages have ripped from you
You’ll leave nothing behind

You can leave
You can leave
As long as you know
I’m the one that let you go
I’m the one that let you go

[Guitar Solo]

You can leave
You can leave
As long as you know
I’m the one that let you go
I’m the one that let you go
