"Burning Paper" as written by Louis Knox Barlow and John Davis....
I wrote you a letter, but I threw it away,

I knew I would, I would if I waited a day,

It made me feel better, what I had to say,

I knew it would, it did, but I waited.



I hardly bothered, though I laboured all day,

I work so hard, there's no time left to please you.

The day I decided I had nothing to say, I'll never learn,

I'm burning all this paper away.



(chorus)

A rhythym in your walking tree, its a tapestry of pride your weaving,

Over, under, ropes of wonder, tie me to a chair.

I'm dirty feet on your clean white shoes, I'm the man of the mess that

greets you, been graced with a slap in the face, tangled in your hair.



I think its time you let me go,

I'm too in love, let me go,

I think its time you let me go,

I'm too in love,

I think its time you let me go,

I'm too in love, let me go,



(chorus)



I wrote you a letter, but I threw it away,

I knew I would, I would, if I waited a day,

It made me feel better, but I have to say,

I'll never learn, I'm burning all this paper away,

I'm burning all this paper away,

I'm burning all this paper.

    General CommentIn a nutshell it's a guy that's too busy but wants to talk to her but he never has time. He loves her so much that he wants her to "let him go" cause he never gets to talk to her anyway.
