Alison Krauss – Paper Airplane Lyrics

I’ve put it all behind me

Nothing left to do or doubt

Some may say

But every silver lining always seems to have a cloud

That comes my way

Anticipated pleasure or unexpected pain

No choice I fear

And love is hard to measure hidden in the rain

That’s why you’ll find me here all alone and still wondering why

Waiting inside for the cold to get colder

And here where it’s clear that I’ve wasted my time

Hoping to fly ’cause it’s almost over now

People come together, people go their own way

Love conquers few

And I’ll do whatever, I’ll say what I need to say

Just not for you

How many days should I smile with a frown?

‘Cause you’re not around with the sun on your shoulders

And how many nights must I wake up alone?

And know in my soul that it’s almost over now

Our love is like a paper airplane flying in the folded wind

Riding high, dipping low

And innocence is fair game, I’m hoping I can hold it in

Our love will die, I know
