Love is a place
for scissors and lace,
for painting up my face
so I can be erased.

Love makes my skin.
Love is paper thin.
Seems to have an end
over and over again.

Cut me up, tear me apart.
Rip me up, break my heart.
I'm just a paper girl
and nothin' hurts.

I scream. I yell.
And no one can tell
that in my pretty shell
I'm burning in hell.

Cut me up, tear me apart.
Rip me up, break my heart.
I'm just a paper girl
and nothin' hurts.

You've no right to call it yours
when you're forcing it to love you.
What a sad mistake to make.
Says a whole lot about you.
At the end of the day
when you're making her stay. What's that saying?

Shame on you for thinking that
you've done yourself a favor
by chaining down another soul
in your conquest for a savior
to try and save you from yourself.
If you don't love you
why would someone else?

Cut me up, tear me apart.
Rip me up, break my heart.
I'm just a paper girl
Nothin' hurts.
Nothin' hurts.
Nothin' hurts.
