Paperman

I walked all morning to try to forget you

But I found myself going round in circles

I stopped at a cafe to meet a friend

But when she got there I began to despair

I sat in the park watching the workmen

As they strained to dig up the road

I picked up a newspaper and put it down again

Can’t find what I want written there in print

You were there then you were gone

It was over before it’d begun

So much that was left to say

To my paperman who blew away

I wander round these city streets all day

Looking for a bargain in the sales

I see a man I knew but I’m too scared to say

Anything to him at all wonder if you will call

You were there then you were gone

It was over before it’d begun

So much that was left to say

To my paperman who blew away

 I sit in this restaurant by myself

As the maitre d’ lists the choices

Looking at the menu I scream for help

I choose alone no one else is on their own

I cut out little bits of paper

In the hope I’m making a paper chain

Full of paper men in miniature

Who won’t walk out and I won’t shout

You were there then you were gone

It was over before it’d begun

So much that was left to say

To my paperman who blew away
