Kitty Wells — Paper Mansions lyrics

Don't build for me no paper mansions
That only stand until you've gone.

You paint the nastiest 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 seem so strong
But they're always made of paper not of stone.
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/kitty-wells-paper-mansions-lyrics.html ]
Don't build for me no paper mansions
That I can never call my own
For love can't live in paper mansions
That only stand until you've gone.

--- Instrumental ---

You've always been a dreamer dear
And I'm a dreamer too
But I guess I've had too many of
The kind that don't come true.

So don't build me no mansions
With paper walls so thin
That only stand
Until you leave again.

Don't build for me no paper mansions
That I can never call my own
For love can't live in paper mansions
That only stand until you've gone...
