Lyrics

Paper cup, ain’t got no worries
Got no, got no dog in this fight

Paper plane take this note straight to her
If her heart’s still in the fight

Maybe time will decide
The restless spirit can’t survive
On breadcrumb trails no more

Paper saint will you hear her when she calls
You got no dog in this fight

Paper bird
Take this offering from her hands
This simple trail back to the light

Maybe time will provide
Give you the strength to decide
Hope it’s not too late

Maybe time will decide
The restless spirit can’t survive
On breadcrumb trails no more

Maybe time will provide
Give you the strength to decide
You know it’s not too late

Paper cup ain’t got no worries
Got no, got no dog in this fight
