Paper Hearts - Tori Kelly



The Experience
But you’ll be good without me and if I could just give it some time I'll be alright... You thought it might be true love, but it ended up only being a good friend. And your left with only bittersweet memories...

Music Video: He can't hear me and he can't talk - he's just a memory. Tori Kelly pours over the photos and memories of her last relationship, while he performs mime in the background.

The Meaning of Paper Hearts: When you're searching and hoping for love, the right person isn't always the first one you come across... That's why you don't fall head over heels right away. You wait, you see. Because the hate only comes if you have to take back things you should never have given away in the first place. Hopefully, if it wasn't meant to be, you'll be able to part ways as friends. The memories will be bittersweet, but still worth hanging on to.

Ask Yourself: Do you have good friends? Or is it always all or nothing?


LYRICS:



Goodbye love, you flew right by love

Remember the way you made me feel
Such young love but
Something in me knew that it was real
Frozen in my head

Pictures I'm living through for now
Trying to remember all the good times
Our life was cutting through so loud
Memories are playing in my dull mind
I hate this part paper hearts
And I'll hold a piece of yours
Don't think I would just forget about it
Hoping that you won’t forget about it

Everything is gray under these skies
Wet mascara
Hiding every cloud under a smile
When there's cameras
And I just can't reach out to tell you
That I always wonder what you’re up to

Pictures I'm living through for now
Trying to remember all the good times
Our life was cutting through so loud
Memories are playing in my dull mind
I hate this part paper hearts
And I'll hold a piece of yours
Don't think I would just forget about it
Hoping that you won't forget

I live through pictures as if I was right there by your side
But you’ll be good without me and if I could just give it some time
I'll be alright

Goodbye love you flew right by love

Pictures I'm living through for now
Trying to remember all the good times
Our life was cutting through so loud
Memories are playing in my dull mind
I hate this part paper hearts
And I'll hold a piece of yours
Don’t think I would just forget about it
Hoping that you won’t forget
