Paperclips

Got a key to your heart
Made it myself out of paperclips
Got a hole in your lip
Made it myself with a paperclip


Now your exhaustion sometimes blinds you
Need some time to unwind
Office supplies in your eyes
You’re always tied to your desk
Tied to your desk, you're blind
You’re always tied to your desk
Give it a rest you’re blind


Got a picture of you
Stuck in a book with a paperclip
It reminds me of a time
You used to build sculptures
Out of paperclips


Now your exhaustion sometimes blinds you
Need some time to unwind
Office supplies in your eyes
You’re always tied to your desk
Tied to your desk, you're blind
You’re always tied to your desk
Give it a rest, you're blind

Remember when paperclips, pens and
Even computers were fun?
Remember when we didn’t think you’d ever work a day in your life,
We just played for crumbs?
And I know a job is a important but it’s not the centre of the universe...


Left a note on your door
Scratched in the word with a paperclip

It said your exhaustion sometimes blinds you
Need some time to unwind
Office supplies in your eyes
You’re always tied to your desk
Tied to your desk, you're blind
You’re always tied to your desk
Give it a rest you’re blind
