(Belated) Song Lyrics
So a number of people have asked for the lyrics of the song, "Paper and a Ring," and I wasn't smart enough to anticipate that. Duh!
Without further adieu:
Paper and a Ring - Brian Mattson
(Verse 1: Man) I need a love to lean on / a love to hold on to
a love to tie me down / so I don't drift away.
I need a love to fence me in / a love to catch my fall
to tie me to the mast / when the Sirens call.
'Cause freedom without purpose isn't free
I need someone else to have a hold of me.
Give me a love / a love to last a lifetime
Give me a love / a tie that really binds.
Passion is a momentary thing
I need a promise, a piece of paper, and a ring.
(Verse 2: Woman) I need a love for comfort / a love to keep me warm
A love to flee for safety / like a shelter in the storm.
I need a love to conquer me / a love to stake its claim
To finally find myself / when it gives me a new name
'Cause freedom isn't all about finding me
To give of myself is liberty
(Repeat Chorus 2x)
