"Paperclips" as written by and Francis Healy....
Paperclips, melody
Hold together all these memories
Memories
Memories
I don't want to think at all

I don't want to be like you anymore
I don't want to see your face at my door
And I'll never leave like you, that's for sure
I don't want to be like you anymore, anymore, anymore

Take a trip, down memory lane
You will never want to go again
Take your leave
Take your leave
I don't want to sing at all

I don't want to be like you anymore
I don't want to see your face at my door
And I'll never leave like you, that's for sure
I don't want to live like you anymore, anymore, anymore

Ever talk, decide out
We get by, we'll get by
And I won't take this
No more sadness, no, no

Paperclips, memories
Hold together all these melodies
Melodies
Melodies
I don't want to sing at all

I don't want to be like you anymore
I don't want to see your face at my door
And I'll never leave like you, that's for sure
I don't want to live like you anymore, anymore, anymore

    General CommentThis song is very sad. If you listen carefully, you'll hear a sound that sounds like a dog whining, or a squeaky wheelbarrow in the background.

    General CommentThis is my favourate song in the album to date. It's really really sad and it's totally brilliant. And the dog whining in the background makes this song all the more dark.

    General CommentOh man Phroqex, I think it is a dog whining. Two of my sister's dogs went nuts when this part played over the radio it was hilarious! They looked at the radio as if it was going to attack them. LOL!!!

    General CommentI think the Song is a kind of an intentional to the song "Re-offender" and if know one knows, Re-offender is about Fran healys parrents relations to each other. In that way, I think Paperclips could be, like a message to his father, like "I don't wanna see your face at my door"´.

    My OpinionI believe this could be about being left or leaving. Or both, in that order. No idea.... I just know it's a great segue to Somewhere Else!
