ALISON KRAUSS lyrics - Paper Airplane

ALISON KRAUSS
"Paper Airplane"

I've put it all behind me, nothing left to do or doubt
Some may say
But every silver lining always seems to have a cloud
That comes my way
Anticipated pleasure or unexpected pain
No choice I fear
And love is hard to measure, hidden in the rain

That's why you'll find me here all alone and still wondering why
Waiting inside for the cold to get colder
And here where its clear that I've wasted my time
Hoping to fly, cause its almost over now

People come together, people go their own way
Love conquers few
And I'll do whatever, I'll say what I need to say
Just not for you

How many days should I smile with a frown,
'Cause you're not around with the sun on your shoulders
And how many nights must I wake up alone
And know in my soul that its almost over now

Our love is like a paper airplane flying in the folded wind
Riding high, dipping low
But innocence is fair game, I'm hoping I can hold it in
Our love will die, I know
