Paper Hearts
silver trees Lyrics


Here's the story, here we are
Falling forward into parts
Playing something into nothing till we know it ‘s not ours
All we have is something simple
All we know is what's been gone
Going into some dramatic, static pause

Whoever can leave here first, wherever I see you hurts, whatever I need to do,

We try to tell a story, we write each other into our lives, but after all it's all just as thin as paper hearts.

Take the sense of false direction,
Take the words out of my head
Always hurt under protection,
Always cut where I don't let in,
Oh my mind, just try on patience,
Oh my heart, just lead the way,
All my life has been a silent fight to be ok

We try to tell a story, we write each other into our lives, but after all it's all just as thin as paper hearts.

We try to tell a story, we write each other into our lives, but after all it's all just as thin as paper hearts.

I honestly cannot get enough of this song. The lyrics, the chord structure, the haunting tone in your voices...it's beautiful. Real, true music with meaning. It's perfect. Keep up the beautiful work!

Thanks @Sarah Johnson , that's some amazing encouragement!  Keep being awesome and thanks for supporting the music!

Justin Gutierrez

I dunno why great artists like you are not known. I'm both happy and sad. You should be more popular but I want to keep you for myself. :3

I love this! My daughter played it to me. Sweet and catchy.

Your voices blend really well. In fact they are so matched I can't help wondering if a little lift on the female vocal (sorry, couldn't find your name!) would help - around 7K? Or try a different mic? Anyway, best wishes coz I don't think you'll need luck!

This song showed up on my discover weekly on Spotify and the first time listening I fell in love.

I know other people have already said this, but I figured it's always good to hear: this song is a gem. It's probably one of the most well-composed modern songs I have ever heard... lyrically, musically, and emotionally. It's one of those very rare songs that you have to listen to multiple times (over a period of time, not back-to back) in order to fully take it in. Y'all are an incredible team... Thank you for making my heart feel things I'm not able to put into words. <3

I found this on Noistrade and I LOVE it! Such a great album. Y'all are seriously so talented and I'm telling everyone about y'all! Is there anywhere I can find the chords to any of your songs? I'm just now learning how to play guitar and I would love to learn one of your songs!
