Paper Boats lyrics

Never thought I'd say I wanna run that old river
I was always tryna get away
Never thought you'd say that's where you would ring her
'Cause that was where we went to escape

And on that crown we could only see each other
It was such a perfect hiding place
In the window of that car light was just a cover
Sky would turn to night and fade away

JUST TO GET OFF LAND
I set up shop in the sand
I MADE A PAPER BOAT
Now down the river I float

Once we hit the water we both tried to swim again
We thought we both lose the time
The rain came down, blame it on the change in weather
Yeah, we fucked up but at least we tried

I curled up, fit into a piece of paper
And fold it over, close my eyes, and hide
And here on off I'll catch it with you, baby
And that way we won't have to say goodbye

JUST TO GET OFF LAND
I set up shop in the sand
I MADE A PAPER BOAT
Now down the river I float
