"Paper Thin" as written by Lewis James Bowman, Richard Paul Mitchell, Liam Carl Arklie, Michael Eran Hibbert and Alexander David Parry....
The archangels wounds are still bleeding
and gather some lavender sun
Fistfuls of feathers and greening
there'll be some winter sun

Silently watch fire widow
awakened unto the night
and lead him off into the shadows
traffic eyes alight.

Oh God, oh God please don't
Does love mean nothing?
Oh lord, oh lord, oh no,
I don't see how I can be without
I don't see how I can be without

I'll be there when life leaves you sensing
and your mind scatters and fractures
and crumbles to pieces;
I'll wait and watch them fly.

Oh God, oh God please don't...
Does love mean nothing?
Oh lord, oh lord, oh no,
I don't see how I can be without
I don't see how I can be without

Slowly the stars will rise up and
slowly the stars will rise up and
slowly the stars will rise,
slowly the stars will rise...

All I ever wanted was for you to last;
All I could have asked for, you have been mine.
Can't be without
Can't be without
Can't be without
Can't be without

    General CommentI think I hear

    "seraphic eyes alight"

    "I'll be there when life leaves your senses"

    "All I could have asked for, you have been...
    and I can't be without"

    He just elides the n of "been" into "and I can't be without" (I think).

    I have some cuckoo theories about the first part of the first verse about lavender and green ink and something to sign, but I need to hear it better to be certain before I go too far out on a limb.
