Well, I walked to the river
Just to ease my troublin' mind
And I thought about leavin'
This cardboard world behind

My paperdoll princess has just blown out on the door
Leavin' nothing more than me

And now the water is over my head
And I keep on sinkin' like my soul was lead
And the world on my shoulders gettin' ready to crack
But I'm in too deep and there ain't
No turnin' back

No, no, no, turnin' back
No, no, no

Ah, the breeze in the trees just
Whisperin' Louise today
And you can take back your rib
'cause I'm really not made of clay

My ice cream dreams have just melted in the night
I'm not standing here to fight the tide

And now the water is over my head
And I keep on sinkin' like my soul was lead
And the world on my shoulders gettin' ready to crack
But I'm in too deep and there ain't
No turnin' back

No, no, no, turnin' back
No, no, no

Well, everybody's tellin' me that
This is wrong and that ain't right
But that can't be
Because I saw the sunshine last night

My crystal ball is blazin' but there's nothing there to see
Oh, there's nothing left of me to see

And now the water is over my head
And I keep on sinkin' like my soul was lead
And the world on my shoulders gettin' ready to crack
But I'm in too deep and there ain't
No turnin' back

No, no, no, turnin' back
No, no, no
