lyrics

Like a paper boat you float,
Till the waves come to take you down.
You're the prettiest paper boat I know,
Till the waves come to take you down.

One day she walked the ocean.
Next day she swam on land.
Two nights of dreams much bigger than
She could keep in just one hand.

Like a paper boat you float...

This little girl likes diving deep.
She likes to touch the bottom of the sea.
She'd kiss the sun if it would only hold it's tongue.

Like a paper boat you float...

She'll take your scars and turn them into light--
Make a blind man see in the darkest night.
She walks with ghosts...
And brings them back to life.

And all she has to say is:
"Like a paper boat you float,
Till the waves come to take you down.
You're the prettiest paper boat I know
Till the waves come to take you down"
