"Blue Paper" as written by Christopher E Keating and Anand Mathew Wilder....
She used to clean up nicely, play dress up
Now she's throwing her clothes away, says she needs the added space
She used to walk on concrete, now the sidewalk
Isn't green enough for her, says she misses Mother Earth
She keeps on telling me, I'm not made for this
So they never give you the time of day but do you really care
Oh no, I don't buy it for a second
Now you say you're finished up with the finer life of trawlers and yet
Oh no, I don't buy it for a second
Now you say you can't find the time to figure out you left ammends
Oh no, I don't buy it for a second
Now you say you want peace and quiet but could you really stand
Before your halcyon days were numbered
Weather would become dark sects as, in the desert
You don't choke on the winter's end, and the sky isn't even there
You don't need to leave the house when, it's a palace

And there's no one to offend, take a walk every now and then
She keeps on telling me, I'm not made for this
So they never give you the time of day but do you really care
Oh no, I don't buy it for a second
Now you say you're finished up with the finer life of trawlers and yet
Oh no, I don't buy it for a second
Now you say you can't find the time to figure out you left ammends
Oh no, I don't buy it for a second
Now you say you want peace and quiet but could you really stand
Before your halcyon days were numbered, that's another, old problem
Spin me on your mirror
The other side looks greener
Write it on blue paper
Think about it later
Spin me on your mirror
The other side looks greener
Write it on blue paper
Think about it later

    General CommentI may be way off the target, but I interpret this as maybe she simply just can't figure out what to do with her life. Wanting to get up and go away to the country side, cuts down her belongings suggesting she's ready to go, but then changing her mind because she can't let go of the people she knows even if she claims not to care what they think. But she's still torn between staying and leaving, thus the grass is always greener. and maybe she's even trying to get him to go with her? ("She keeps on telling me i'm not made for this")
    I love this song I just wish I understood what the "blue paper" symbolizes.
