"Paper Romance" as written by Benjamin Duffy, Andy Cocup, Thomas Findlay, Rebecca Jones and Sam Stubbings....
Taste it in the air so sweet
Because they come alive
My visions of the city street
All of electrify

I feel your heat
I never wanna let you go
I rock too this beat
I'm standing here to let you know

Yeah you can write me a love letter
But there's nothing to say
Don't wanna take a chance on your paper romance anyway
Yea you can rub it off much better
If you come away

My golden heart beats for you
My golden heart beats for two
I feel my pain
The time it takes
For us to change
Its gonna happen anyway

I feel your heat
I never wanna let you go
I rock to this beat
I'm standing here to let you know

Yeah you can write me a love letter
But there's nothing to say
Don't wanna take a chance on your paper romance anyway
Yea you can rub it off much better
If you come away

Yeah you can write me a love letter
But there's nothing to say
Don't wanna take a chance on your paper romance anyway

Yeah you can write me a love letter
But there's nothing to say
Don't wanna take a chance on your paper romance anyway
Yea you can rub it off much better
If you come away

    My InterpretationFirst off, I believe the chorus is:

    "Yeah you can write me a love letter
    but there's nothing to say
    I don't wanna take a chance on your paper romance anyway

    Yeah you can love me up much better
    If you come our way
    I don't wanna take a chance on your paper romance anyway"


    To me, this song is about the love of money and material possessions. He doesn't want to risk selling his soul for money. He would be much more inclined to love it if he got rich, but it's not worth taking that chance. Confused creatures come alive in the electrified city streets with all of the glitz and glamor and things that seem real and valuable.

    "The time it takes
    for us to change
    it's gonna happen anyway"

    I love this line. I think he's saying by the time we as a society give up this self-destructive love of material wealth, society will have already self-destructed and we will have started over.

    Beautiful song, I could be off base but this is what is in my heart every time I hear the song.

    General CommentMale in verses claims that he loves her. Female in verses replies that his love is only on paper, not real, just paper romance

    General CommentFirst of all I love this song!

    I don't know why but I think this song means that he fell in love with a prostitute but he doesn't want a romance he has to pay for.

    General CommentLet the correct lyrics for the album version of the song is this:

    Taste it in the air so sweet
    Creatures they come alive
    Confliction on the city streets
    All of electrified

    I feel your heat
    I never wanna let you go
    I rock to this beat
    I'm standing here to let you know

    Yeah you can write me a love letter
    But there's nothing to say
    I don't wanna take a chance on your paper romance anyway
    Yeah you can rub me off much better
    If you come our away
    I don't wanna take a chance on your paper romance anyway

    My golden heart beats for two
    My golden heart beats for you
    I feel our pain
    The time it takes
    For us to change
    It's gonna happen anyway

    I feel your heat
    I never wanna let you know
    I rock to this beat
    I'm standing here to let you know

    Yeah you can write me a love letter
    But there's nothing to say
    I don't wanna take a chance on your paper romance anyway
    Yeah you can rub me off much better
    If you come our away
    I don't wanna take a chance on your paper romance anyway

    Yeah you can write me a love letter
    But there's nothing to say
    I don't wanna take a chance on your paper romance anyway
    Yeah you can rub me off much better
    If you come our away
    I don't wanna take a chance on your paper romance anyway

    Yeah you can write me a love letter
    But there's nothing to say
    I don't wanna take a chance on your paper romance anyway
    Yeah you can rub me off much better
    If you come our away
    I don't wanna take a chance on your paper romance anyway
