"My Paper Heart" as written by Tyson Ritter and Nick Wheeler....
Please just don't play with me My paper heart will bleed
This wait for destiny won't do
Be with me please I beseech you
Simple things, that make you run a-way
Catch you if I can

Tears fall, down your face
The taste, is something new
Something that I know
Moving on is, easiest when I am around you.

So bottle up old love,
And throw it out to sea,
Watch it away as you cry
Now a year has past
The seasons go

Please just don't play with me
My paper heart will bleed
This wait for destiny won't do
Be with me please I beseech you
Simple things, that make you run a-way
Catch you if I can

Waiting, day to day it goes through
My lips, are sealed for her
My tongue is,
Tied to, a dream of being with you
To settle for less, is not what I prefer

Summer time, the nights they are so long
The leaves fall down, and so do I into
the arms of a friend
Winter nights
My bedside is cold, for I am gone
And spring blossoms you to me

    My InterpretationPlease just don't play with me
    My paper heart will bleed
    This wait for destiny won't do
    Be with me, please
    I beseech you
    Simple things that make you run away
    Catch you if I can

    I think this part is saying he's interested in a girl but he's unsure if she has feelings for him. He doesn't want to be led on and he just wants to find out if she's interested. He wants to tell her how he feels because he's tired of waiting but he's worried she'll run away if he tells her.

    Tears fall down your face
    The taste is something new
    I know moving on is
    Easiest when I am around you

    I think they both had a former relationship which led to heartbreak. He is ready to move on and he wants to be with her but she's not over the old relationship yet.

    So bottle up old love
    And throw it out to sea
    Watch it away as you cry
    A year has passed
    The seasons go

    I think he's saying they need to let go of their old love because it's been a year.

    Waiting, day goes through
    My lips are sealed for her
    My tongue is tied to a treaty with you
    Settling for less is not what I'd prefer

    When he says my lips are sealed for her I think that means he doesn't want anyone else and he just wants to kiss her. He could survive without her, but that's not what he prefers.

    Summertime
    The night's so long
    The leaves fall down
    So do I to the arms of a friend
    Winter nights, my bedside is cold
    For I am gone
    The spring blossoms you to me
    The spring blossoms you to me

    No matter what happens, he will always have his friend's arms to fall into. However, he really wants to be with this girl so he feels lonely without her (my bedside is cold). He's hoping that by Springtime, she will fall for him and they will be together.
