Origami

lyrics

Once I floated up a mountain stream
I was a vessel of uncertainty
Watched the day unfold in darker shades
Wild dreams lay by my side like paper cranes

The tempest winds had caught a hold of me
I was a shipwreck on her fragile beach
I was alone, in need of sympathy
She folds me up like origami

Oh you built me up
In origami love
It cast us into shapes
We couldn’t hold them up
Don’t you build me up
This origami love

Come close to me
I need to feel your heat
I’ve come unraveled like a tapestry

With all your melodies in minor keys
Your voice of cyanide and mercury

Oh, the ways I try to change my shape
You weep like whispers in a garden maze
Two names caught up inside a paper tree
We’re folded up like origami

Oh I built you up
In origami love
It cast us into shapes
We couldn’t hold them up
Don’t you build me up
This origami love

Oh we built this up
In origami love
It cast us into shapes
We couldn’t hold them up
Don’t you build me up
Origami love
Don’t you build me up
Origami
