Anna Nalick - Paper Bag Lyrics




She don't run from the sun no more
She boxed her shadow and she won
Said I can see you laugh
Through these bottle caps
And this wire around my neck ain't
There for fun

But someday we'll all be old
And I'll be so damn beautiful
Meanwhile I'll hide my head
Here in this paper bag
Cause if I cant see you
Then you can't see me
And it'll be okay
Fly little bee away
To where theres no more rain
And I can be me

Yeah they talk about her
She smiles like shes so tough
She says
"hey can you talk a little louder,
I don't think my heart is broken enough"

But someday we'll all be old
And I'll be so damn beautiful

Meanwhile I'll hide my head
Here in this paper bag
Cause if I can't see you
Then you can't see me
And it'll be okay
Fly little bee away
To where theres no more rain
And I can be me

Some days I wade in the indigo
Singing that song on the radio
I blame these puddles on the rain
You know I gotta keep these cheeks dry today
Gotta keep my cheating strategy
And baby I'm gonna have it made.

But someday we'll all be old
And I'll be so damn beautiful

Meanwhile I'll hide my head
Here in this paper bag
Cause if I can't see you
Then you can't see me
And it'll be okay
Fly little bee away
To where there's no more rain
And I can be me

  1. Centurian Tale

    My mom just showed me this now and this song is frickin' beautiful!

  2. Filomena Baker

    This song reminds me of Throne of Glass.

  3. forever 343

    すばらしいでごわす!

  4. Chimoritaaa

    Ahh the feels.

    I used to listen to this 10 years ago in my Freshman Year of high school. I would cry because it made me feel some type of way. I was extremely insecure for no reason. Every time I hear this it takes me back. And it's one of those songs that had a silver lining. I get emotional but I also smile because because I overcame it.
    "It'll be okay" :)

    mugglebornprincess, I can't see ur profile and type, see...the entire town chased me away, I'm sorry to say...I've lost everything except Jesus. I'm really happy all turned out for you. I'm persecuted daily for things that happened 8 or more years ago.

  6. jenny b

    yep, that's me now. thanks ladies and gentlemen.

    +jenny b well if it means anything i used to feel so much like that like 6 years ago (and it sounds so strange to say that because it feels so long ago but i'm still 20) and now that i come back and listen to this i realise how much i hid myself from the world and how much that has changed and how much i have changed and i'm not like that anymore even though i needed to be that person then so that i can be who i am now it still makes me cry

    jenny b

  29. Elisabeth Zarnoti

    another weird piece of imagery (I just realized yesterday) is that when the lyrics say "I can see you laugh, behind these bottlecaps", the bottlecaps are glasses (I realized this while wearing glasses). Just a random fact:)
