Amber Gray

Where are all the things that you will buy me? Where are all the times you laid beside me?
Where is the candy? Where are the flowers? Where are all the love stories? Love stories.

I had a paper doll. Her name was Amber Gray. She fit into my fingers; I liked to play along. Paper dolls, their papered hearts. Paper dolls, their paper hearts.

Where are all the things that you will buy me? Where are all the times you laid beside me? Where is the passion? Where is the romance? Where are all the love stories? Love stories.

Amber Gray went away. And what a surprise, everybody does (dies).
And who am I to speak my mind? Got caught in a mouth trap. Don’t know the time (don’t know the time).
I start to cry (I start to cry). I start to cry.

I love you with my paper heart. I love you with this paper love. I love you with my paper heart. I love you. I love you.
