We Were Wallpaper (A Song) - Poem by Jade Leven

something compelled me to scrape off the wallpaper
it hurts somewhere inside as it falls
I can't stop thinking that my heart is a room
and I'm tearing you down from the walls

but you know that I want to keep you in this sacred place
sometimes I simply don't have a choice
I assure you that I am doing this most reluctantly
and I myself don't know how I'll live without hearing your voice

we were children watching the starry sky
we were best friends letting time fly by
we were something just a little more than everything
we were wallpaper

after all the fun we had I don't feel too much regret
but I feel exhausted to the bone
from all the tears all through the years and all the laughter
it's taken so much of me, I never would have known

we were children watching the starry sky
we were best friends letting time fly by
we were something just a little more than everything
we were wallpaper

I feel inclined to admit to you that I have brought you shame
on more than one occasion something harsh followed your name
even if I meant it, and even if it was true
I've never needed anyone more than I need you

we were children watching the starry sky
we were best friends letting time fly by
we were something just a little more than everything
we were wallpaper
