Paper Heart


Life is just a story that is stranger than it seems

Love is like a fiery bolt of hunger through your dreams

And you come so close together you just tear yourselves apart

Moving through the flames of passion with a paper heart


You can come into my story, you can bring your mystery

Touch me with the glory of your spirit running free

We can straighten out your feelings while they're tangled up in mine

We belong together, darlin - - we're the wild kind 


Somewhere down the highway, darlin, raise a glass to me

One among the number of your precious memories

Never take yourself for granted, darlin; you deserve the best

And if you ever need an outlaw, think of me before the rest
