Lyrics
Paperweight ( Clinger-Campau)

let me touch someone, let me feel something
but i can’t or i won’t i don’t know so i’ll ask
let me hear wonder, let me fear horror
but it’s all out of reach and my thirst can’t be quenched

let me be useful, i want to feel needed
but my heart is a trench and the world is a trowel
let me contribute, can i give myself freely
that’s what i need for that purpose do i long

i’m a paperweight
i just sit on the desk looking pretty and i shine
i’m a paperweight
i make a real good gift, i’m the thing that no one needs
i’m a paperweight
i feel heavy in your hands and my surfaces are round
i’m a paperweight
i don’t even serve my purpose, i don’t hold any papers down

let me contribute, can i give myself freely
that’s what i need for that purpose do i long
let me be useful, i want to feel needed
but my heart is a trench and the world is a trowel
let me hear wonder, let me fear horror
but it’s all out of reach and my thirst can’t be quenched
let me touch someone, let me feel something
but i can’t or i won’t i don’t know so i’ll ask

i’m a paperweight
i just sit on the desk looking pretty and i shine
i’m a paperweight
i make a real good gift, i’m the thing that no one needs
i’m a paperweight
i feel heavy in your hands and my surfaces are round
i’m a paperweight
i don’t even serve my purpose, i don’t hold any papers down
