Niall Horan - Paper Houses Lyrics

One, two, three, four
In this house of broken hearts
We made our love out of stacks of cards
And yes we tried, to hold on tight
'Cause we knew our love was hard to find

And our paper houses reach the stars
'Til we break and scatter worlds apart
Yeah, I paid the price and own the scars
Why did we climb and fall so far?

We held our cards, built them high
But way too close to the light
So turn your head, and let us go
I'll learn to breathe on my own

And our paper houses reach the stars
'Til we break and scatter worlds apart
Yeah, I paid the price and own the scars
Why did we climb and fall so far?

And our paper houses reach the stars
'Til we break and scatter worlds apart
I don't wanna lose your touch
I don't wanna hurt this much
I can feel you slipping away

Yeah, I paid the price and own the scars
Why do we climb and fall so far?

Why do we climb to fall so far?

Niall Horan Paper Houses Comments
  1. Bojack

    It's 2:30 am I'm crying and I don't have anyone to talk how I miss 2017 when my neighbor just listened to Niall Horan songs and my only worry was know the name of songs like this when my father was alive I was happy but didn't know now I notice😭😭


    now that I moved my old house was destroyed and I just have memories and feelings stuck with me every night when I can't sleep I just wish my situation changed someway somehow I can't stop thinking about that his songs to me are so important damn I'm so fucking sad


    It's fucking raining the sky is crying just like me

  2. never let this go

    he has such a beautiful voice i can’t believe it.
    he better not come back in one direction, they really didn’t valorize his voice enough.

  3. Andrea Caballero

    Todas las canciones de niall son hermosas

  4. The Future

    There's should be official mv of this.

  5. Karen Tineo

    To me this a powerful song. To me it is basically the directioners singing to 1d. Firstly when he sings “in this house of broken hearts” .....well do I really need to explain? When he sings the chorus I get flashbacks of all the crying fans, the boys singing and Nialls classic jump. I think of the boys smiling at each other and the beautiful phone lights being waved around while our boys sing little things. “I learned to breathe on my own” this really hit me, it is like the fans saying ‘it’s okay you can go we learned how to breathe on our own’ 😭😭😭. It is like we are singing to them about there hiatus telling them that it is okay and just hinting to them that we still very much think about one direction. I think we can all admit even if you’re not a 1d fan and you just a fan of one of the boys that they have changed our lives dramatically....we all went from straight A’s to straight D’s 🤣🤣🤣jk. Anyway whoever is reading this I am very sorry about wasting your time but stay beautiful/handsome and have a fabulous life!!!!💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖😍😘

    I'm sitting here looking at him and I can't help but think how is he facing the world alone without his brothers who were there for 5 years.. how can they just separate and be fine while we're here all crying while listening to there solo songs. thinking about the old days is hard. but I'm glad Niall is solo now because you can truly hear his vocals. when in one direction he didn't sing much by himself and he should have. because he has an amazing voice. he is on talented Irish man. my heart loves him and how much he has become independent. he's so grown up now. all of them are men now. I miss one direction .but the split might have been a good thing. don't hate me for saying that. but now they can express themselves fully. they don't have to worry about other member liking the song. bc its there song. its how they feel about something. this song makes me think he misses one direction. I wouldn't be surprised, to be honest, they were a boy band for 5 years. you don't just do something for a few years than not miss it when it changes. to be honest I love all the boys but Zayn wasn't happy in one direction. I could see it in his eyes. he didn't have to betray Louis though. louis wasn't innocent either. zayn loved one direction. but being in a band just wasn't what he was meant and wanted to do. I was heartbroken when they broke up. but I didn't cry because I knew it was coming. You don't just take a year break and release some of your one. Music and expect to go back to the way it was. I'm glad harry decided to go solo. It gave everyone the chance to show there true music taste and their vocal by themselves. I still love on direction but I love them solo even more.

  11. Aubrey John Santiago

    I always listen to niall songs because there is this one person I can't forget in my whole life until this time I still Love you P Sam.

  24. Ellie Holmes-Parker
