Paperlate paperlate
Paperlate paperlate

Paperlate
Ooh I'm sorry but there is no one on the line
Paperlate
Ooh I'm sorry but rest easy no news is good news

Ooh it's too easy to live like clockwork
Tick tock watchin' the world go by
Ooh any change would take too long
So dry your eyes

Ooh it's too easy to live in a cold sweat
Just sittin' drippin' in pools below
You can wipe your face, kill the pain
But the fever won't go, no no

Paperlate
Pull it together now put your feet back on the ground
Paperlate
Ooh don't worry now you're not alone look around you

Paperlate
Ooh I'm sorry but there's no one on the line
Ah paperlate
Ooh I'm sorry but rest easy no news is good news

Ooh it's too easy to compute our future
Takin' no risks and playin' too safe
Any change would take too long
So dry your eyes

Ooh it's too easy to talk 'bout rockin' the boat
Makin' changes and changin' track
Oh but you'd better not lock that door
'Cos you'll be comin' back

Ah you're breathin' faster
Silence the only sound
There's no need to be nice on the way up
'Cos you're not coming down

Paperlate paperlate
Ah paperlate paperlate
Paperlate paperlate
Ah paperlate paperlate

Ah paperlate
Ooh I'm sorry but there's no one on the line
Ah paperlate
Oh I'm sorry but rest easy no news is good news
Ah paperlate
Ooh I'm sorry but
