I came for you
Just to feel you
Finally
Break in two

I would that you
Spoke with no words
Like paper cuts they hurt

Cicada
Sing like it was afternoon already

Call for your Love
It is bulit soon to end
This heart is

You rendered me
Unprotected
My feet part
Of the floor

I would that you
Spoke with no words
Like paper cuts they hurt

Cicada
Sing like it was afternoon already

Call for your Love
It is built soon to end
This heart is

    General Commentahhh so pretty. The video, also, is brilliant and beautiful.
    I painted something based on the imagery I got from the lyrics and sounds in the song. ._.

    General Commentit's a song of being fragile. being afraid to try something new like a new love and being broken because of the new love's failure to last.

    it could also be about being tricked. paper seems harmless but it could give you one bad paper cut. he thought he finally found true love but it was all the same.
