My Paper Heart Lyrics

Please just don’t play with me my paper heart will bleed
This wait for destiny won’t do
Be with me please I beseach you
Simple things, that make you run a-way
Catch you if I can

Tears fall, down your face
The taste, is something...

    I think that this song is just saying "don't play games with me, because if you do it will tear me apart. All I really want is to be with you, so don't be scared and just be with me."

    ***i think this song is about both the way he feels about someone new, and yet at the same time, he is telling her "don't waste my time if you're just gonna rip my paper heart...
    i also think that he is saying that he has people in his life that will make moving on much easier. ("i know moving on is easier with you.")

    It's about a boy and a girl who are in love. Since their relationship just began, he's trying to tell her not to play with his heart if its not a sincere thing because that would "make his paper heart bleed".

    I think that this song is about a guy who is in love with a girl. He wants to be with her and thinks that she does too. But he isn't sure so he says "please just don't play with me, my paper heart will bleed. This wait for destiny won't do be with me please I beseech you" So he doesn't want to wait any longer for what destiny has in store. He wants to be with her here and now.

    Yeah I agree with the first person, he's telling someone not to hurt him, cause his heart is weak (paper heart), and maybe someone else already messed with him, and that's why its so weak
