Papercuts (Illy ft. Vera Blue)


Oh, God, my God, how she getting me
Even though we’ll never get it right, and it’s meant to be
My ego, her pride, some recipe
We’re our biggest fans and our worst enemies
Ain’t shy, let the whole world know
Haven’t turned in at the blur by blur
She move, I move, let her go, I go
Stood up, stand back, watch the firework show
Eh-oh, too proud to quit when it’s working
Too undenial to admit when it’s over
Drown in the ?? but we’re dancing on ocean
Both into deep to know where the coast is
Surrounded by waves, and the hurricane gaze
When we’re together, it’s none of you safe
Buckle up, or get out of our way
Up and smoke down in flames
‘Cause man,

[Vera Blue:]
When we fight fire we fight fire
When we cross the line
Eh-oh, maybe happy ever after it ain’t for us
Ain’t no surprise when we play, we match
Eh-oh, ain’t no broken pride,
These are papercuts
Ain’t no broken pride,
These are papercuts

Down by one, on a hundred
Nowhere to hide, nowhere left to run
But I’d rather walk with you all the summer
Then to lowkey pace with another
One by one, every cut
Yeah, it gets deeper
Who are they to judge?
‘Cause when it’s on we roll like the thunder

Then it’s alright, beat with the other
Hey, stuck on repeat till the lesson gets learned
You play with fire, bridges get burning
Stand on when we’re making this worse
Ain’t nobody move, and nobody gets hurt
Hey, we just caught in our ways
Sucker punch is trader, no funny games
Until the car’s full, then it’s ??
Can’t even wore anywhere

[Vera Blue:]
When we fight fire we fight fire
When we cross the line
Eh-oh, maybe happy ever after it ain’t for us
Ain’t no surprise when we play, we match
Eh-oh, ain’t no broken pride,
These are papercuts

(x2)
I know where we get
You know where my demons are
Put us on the map, and
Tearing everything inside

When will we learn?
We’ve come too far in this to see
How much it hurts
When will we learn?
You and I, we’ve come too far in this to know
When to let go!
Are we at better hearts if we only make it worse?
Are we better off apart? But can’t say the words
When will we learn?
You and I, we’ve come too far in this to see
All we ever do is bleed
When we fight fire, we fight
When we cross the line
Eh-oh, maybe happy ever after it ain’t for us
Ain’t no surprise when we play, we match
Eh-oh, ain’t no broken pride,
These are papercuts

(x2)
I know where we get
You know where my demons are
Put us on the map, and
Tearing everything inside
