Made of Paper
Written by: Juliet Hummel-Anderson

Fake
That's the word that comes to mind
When I smile
Pray
It's a hope that's all mine
So I'll do it for a while
I can't deal with all of this tension
Why
Does it feel like the world's crashing down
Why am I upside down?

Chorus:
If I could say what I want to say
I'd say I'm not okay
When you ask me if I am
You tear this canvas skin apart
What a waste of human art that would be
My heart's made of paper
But I don't want it to be

No
That's what I want to say
When you tell me, it's just a joke
Mean
That's the word that pops up
When you laugh and say, 'Just kidding!'
I can't deal with all the laughing
It's breaking me apart
Making me confused
Why am I upside down?

Chorus:
If I could say what I want to say
I'd say I'm not okay
When you ask me if I am
You tear this canvas skin apart
What a waste of human art that would be
My heart's made of paper
But I don't want it to be

Put down the rocks
They'll only scratch the surface
And lock up your words
Cause they make me nervous
What kind of fool?
Came up with that saying?
Feel free to break my bones
It'll hurt less than being all alone

If I could say what I want to say
I'd say I'm not okay
So don't ask me if I am
You know the answer...

Chorus:
If I could say what I want to say
I'd say I'm not okay
When you ask me if I am
You tear this canvas skin apart
What a waste of human art that would be
My heart's made of paper
But I don't want it to be

You tear this canvas skin apart
What a waste of human art that would be
My heart's made of paper
But I don't want it to be
