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 Ken Clinger; backing tracks Don Campau: vocals, lyrics Robin O’Brien: background vocals recorded in Pittsburgh PA and Santa Rosa CA 2011
