Jason Wade – Paper Cuts lyrics

I woke up today to find
This tunnel vision left me blind
With no sense of where to go

There’s Paper Cuts on both my hands
Flipping through these books trying to understand
I don’t, so I just go with the flow

There’s an open door with a clenched fist
And crooked signs that I might have missed
Some, somewhere along the way

As I close my eyes I disappear
To a place in time far from here
I run, but I can’t outrun today

--Chorus--
There’s lightning in the sky
I’m on the road oh
There’s an overwhelming urge as she explodes
All my life been waiting to arrive
It’s not the destination it’s the drive

I woke up with a bloody nose
And bruises on my feet and toes
Been kicking and screaming at the wall

Strange how you feel most alive
When you’re broken down trying to survive
You cry and curl up into a ball

Somewhere in the solitude
Silence creeps up in front of you
For once there’s nothing to lose

As I stare into the empty space
Everything seems to dissipate
Even if I could I wouldn’t want to move

--Chorus--
There’s lightning in the sky
I’m on the road oh
There’s an overwhelming urge as she explodes
All my life been waiting to arrive
It’s not the destination it’s the drive

Oh, Oh, Oh

Woke up today with burning ears
Has it been 30 days or 30 years
I call, get you on the phone

Said there’s paper cuts on both your hands
Flipping through these books trying to understand
This life gets stranger as we go

--Chorus--
There’s lightning in the sky
I’m on the road, oh
There’s an overwhelming urge as she explodes
All my life been waiting to arrive
It’s not the destination it’s the drive
Oh, It’s the drive, Oh
