You were a hard faced kid
That was new on the block
And a lone life force
That nobody could stop

You had a mind of black and gold
And every shade in between
You were a paper back boy
With a slate so clean

So come on
So come on

You were my heart shaped queen
On your way to school
You were a paper back girl
Back before it was cool

You were a bird shot down
With you feathers all red
With your face turned up
And your arms outstreched

Now come on
Now come on

    My InterpretationThis might be completely wrong, but i thought i'd give it a shot. this is just how i interpret this song.

    You were a hard faced kid - tough, frowning; unhappy.
    That was new on the block - new kid.
    And a lone life force
    That nobody could stop - ^ lonely, no friends.

    You had a mind of black and gold
    And every shade in between - ^ like the saying 'seeing things in black and white.
    You were a paper back boy - my thoughts is like you liked paper back books, no electronics. you're old fashioned, basically.
    With a slate so clean - good kid. don't get into trouble. innocence.

    So come on
    So come on

    You were my heart shaped queen - you were the queen of school; popular. queen of love, all the guys want you.
    On your way to school - you're on your way to where you rule
    You were a paper back girl
    Back before it was cool - ^ you were old fashioned before it was cool to be.

    You were a bird shot down - you were a dreamer, but all your dreams were shot down.
    With your feathers all red - feathers are red, as in they're red with blood. or the dreams you have. they're spilling out of you.
    With your face turned up
    And your arms outstreched - ^ you wish to be a bird again, a dreamer. you look to the sky and hold your arms out wishing you could fly.

    Now come on
    Now come on

    Just my thoughts, they might be completely wrong. After all nobody really knows what a song is about except the writer himself. xx
