Don't build for me no paper mansions
That only stand until you've gone
You've paint the nastiest futures
Of anyone I know

You always leave me holding on
To pretty words that glow
You've built a thousand mansions
Out of dreams that seemed so strong

But they're always made of paper
Not of stone

Don't build for me no paper mansion
That I can never call my own
For love can't live in paper mansions
That only stand until you've gone

You've always been a dreamer
Dear, and I'm a dreamer too
But I guess I've had too many of the time
That don't come true

So don't build me no mansion
With paper walls so thin
That only stand until you leave again
Don't build for me
