"Paperweight (with Schuyler Fisk)" as written by and Joshua Ryan Radin Elizabeth Fisk Schuyler....
Been up all night
Staring at you
Wondering what's on your mind

I've been this way
With so many before
But this feels like the first time

You want the sunrise
To go back to bed
I want to make you laugh

Mess up my bed with me
Kick off the covers
I'm waiting
Every word you say I think
I should write down
I don't want to forget
Come daylight

Happy to lay here
Just happy to be here
I'm happy to know you

Play me a song
Your newest one
Please leave your taste on my tongue
Paperweight on my back
Cover me like a blanket

Mess up my bed with me
Kick off the covers
I'm waiting
Every word you say i think
I should write down
I don't to forget
Come daylight

And no need to worry
That's wastin' time
And no need to wonder
What's been on my mind
It's you
It's you

Every word you say I think
I should write down
I don't want to forget
Come daylight

And I give up
I let you win
You win 'cause I'm not counting

You made it back
To sleep again
Wonder what you're dreamin'...

    It's amazing when you meet someone who's presence alone can make you happy. And, take it from me, it can hurt a lot if that person walks away

    General Commentthis song is love. everything about it is love, and not first high school love...but love "i've been this way with so many before but this feels like the first time" it makes you remember that one person that made you feel that way and you can't help but smile..."please leave your taste on my tongue"

    General CommentI love this song. It's amazing. "happy to lay here.
    just happy to be here. i'm happy to know you." might just be some of my favorite lyrics ever. So simple, so sweet, so beautiful.
