Dottie West — Paper Mansions lyrics

Don't build for me no paper mansions that only stand until you've gone
You've paint the nasiest futures of anyone I know
You always leave me holding on to pretty words that glow
You've built a thousand mansions out of dreams that seemed so strong
But they're always made of paper not of stone
Don't build for me no paper mansion that I can never call my own
For love can't live in paper mansions that only stand until you've gone
[ piano ]
You've always been a dreamer dear and I'm a dreamer too
But I guess I've had too many of the time that don't come true
So don't build me no mansion with paper walls so thin
That only stand until you leave again
Don't build for me...
