Anberlin – Paperthin Hymn lyrics
When your only friends are hotel rooms
Hands are distant lullabies
If I could turn around I would tonight

These roads never seemed so long
Since your paper heart stopped beating leaving me suddenly alone
Will daybreak ever come?

Who's gonna call on sunday morning?
Who's gonna drive you home?
I just want one more chance
To put my arms in fragile hands

I thought you said forever
Over and over
A sleepless night becomes bitter oblivion
These thoughts run through my head
Over and over
Complaints of violins become my only friends

August evenings
Bring solemn warnings
To remember to kiss the ones you love goodnight
You never know what temporal days may bring
So laugh, love, live free and sing
When life is in dischord
Praise ye the lord

Who's gonna call on sunday morning?
Who's gonna drive you home?
I just want one more chance
To put my arms in fragile hands

I thought you said forever
Over and over
The sleepless night becomes bitter oblivion
These thoughts run through my head
Over and over
Complaints of violins become my only friends, friends

I thought you said forever
Over and over

This sleepless night becomes bitter oblivion
These thoughts run through my head
Over and over
Complaints of violins become my only friends
I thought you said forever
Over and over
These thoughts run through my head

    I love this song. This song basically says to me that the girl in the relationship just stopped loving him. This sounds like a christian song and it sounds like the girl was not good at holding onto things with her "fragile hands". And now the guy can't sleep because she said she would love him forever plenty of times but the truth is she didn't and the thought of her saying that runs through his mind every night.

    This song means so much to me right now. I just lost my grandfather yesterday, and this morning after I woke up and realized that it had all been real, not just an awful nightmare, the first thing I did was get my ipod out and start listening to this song. It made me start crying so hard all over again - but it made me feel better, too, and because of that I think this will always be one of my favorite songs.
