Don’t let your life slip through the cracks in your hand
If you hold on tight you might stand a chance

Don’t be yourself if you’re not someone you like
There’s hope for change in anyone’s life

The paper skin I’m living in it tells the truth, it proves I’m broken
This paper skin, so frail so thin and every touch can tear me open
La la la la la la la la la, La la la la la la la la

Don’t make your love suffer insecurity
Trade the baggage of “self” to set another man free

Don’t dream out loud you never know who will hear
Delight in bringing you down and fill your head with their fears

On paper skin words won’t rescind they sink too deep and slice me open
In paper skin I never mend it bends me back until I’m broken
La la la la la la la la la, La la la la la la la la

    My InterpretationWow!!! no comments
    Well, I'll add mine.
    I think it is about being hurt and thinking there is something wrong with you because no one will treat you right. Then crying out for them to leave you alone. Because someone told you you were to sensitive.
    If you ever feel this way remember this quote:
    "Such sensitivity is a blessing, not many can say they ware your heart on your sleeve. Not many can say that they truly care."
