lyrics

I wrote you a letter
You turned to confetti
And as you tore it into something new
All of its secrets became clear to you

The words on the paper
Came sputtering along
Things you could never ignore
They honked on the horn
And announced themselves at the door

So, no, it's not your fault
But it is your gift, yes
To be able to talk like you do
I'm hoping one day that I'll understand you too

The world is an oyster
Tight and unkind
But eventually it ends up comin round
You've gotta learn to swim deep if you want to hear something profound

You taught me those things
That you didn't even know
That you didn't even ever care to ever know
You only knew to do the things you knew
But we still keep falling for you

Your hair is still perfect
And those letters that you wrote
All spoke to everybody in the room
Your words are forever, but you know you're just passing through

Now you're leaking and rusted
And you're covered in dust
You can't sleep but you can't help but dream
You recall all the nights when you knew how to make them all scream

Oh Paul!
