Paperlate paperlate
Paperlate paperlate

Paperlate, oh Im sorry but there is no one on the line
Paperlate, oh Im sorry but rest easy no news is good news

Ooh its too easy to live like clockwork
Tick tock watching the world go by
Any change would take too long
So dry your eyes
Ooh its too easy to live in a cold sweat
Just sitting dripping in pools below
You can wipe your face
Kill the pain
But the fever wont go, no no

Paperlate
Pull it together now
Put your feet back on the ground
Paperlate
Ooh dont worry now
Youre not alone
Look around you
Paperlate
Ooh Im sorry but theres no one on the line
Paperlate
Ooh Im sorry but rest easy no news is good news

Ooh its too easy to compute your future
Taking no risks and playing too safe
Any change would take too long
So dry your eyes
Ooh its too easy to talk about rocking the boat
Making changes and changing track
But youd better not lock that door
Cos youll be coming back

Ah youre breathing faster
Silence the only sound
Theres no need to be nice on the way up
Cos youre not coming down

Paperlate paperlate
Paperlate paperlate
Paperlate paperlate
Paperlate paperlate

Paperlate
Ooh Im sorry but theres no one on the line
Paperlate
Oh Im sorry but rest easy no news is good news...
