    Lyrics

    (Ted Harris)

    Don't build for me no paper mansions
    That I can never call my own
    For love can't live in paper mansions
    That only stand until you've gone.

    You paint the nicest futures of anyone I know
    You always leave me holding on to pretty words that glow
    You've built a thousand mansions out of dreams that seem so strong
    But they're always made of paper not of stone.

    Don't build for me no paper mansions
    That I can never call my own
    For love can't live in paper mansions
    That only stand until you've gone.

    --- Instrumental ---

    You've always been a dreamer dear and I'm a dreamer too
    But I guess I've had too many of the kind that don't come true
    So don't build me no mansions with paper walls so thin
    That only stand until you leave again.

    Don't build for me no paper mansions
    That I can never call my own
    For love can't live in paper mansions
    That only stand until you've gone...
