lyrics

I've got paper cuts from this book that I have read,
The protagonist is questionable at best,
Never been reviewed, It's never won any awards,
It's boring me to death,

A long time ago, in a place not far away,
We watched our dreams unfold, based on promises we made,
We didn't keep them all, doesn't matter anyway,
'Cos we'll make some more

Will you read the sentences that I wrote?
Will you turn the pages after I'm gone?

We've got time to kill,
We've got ideas in our heads,
Could be dangerous, but our intentions are the best,
Put this book away, and draft a new one every day,
And each morning we will sing

Will you read the sentences that I wrote?
Will you turn the pages after I'm gone?
All the post-it notes that stick in my mind,
Refer to places I prefer to spend time,
Help me proofread paragraphs I've worked on,
So they'll be remembered after we're gone

It's OK, It's alright, It's gone.
