(Ted Harris)

Don't build for me no paper mansions
That I can never call my own
For love can't live in paper mansions
That only stand until you've gone.

You paint the nicest futures of anyone I know
You always leave me holding on to pretty words that glow
You've built a thousand mansions out of dreams that seem so strong
But they're always made of paper not of stone.

Don't build for me no paper mansions
That I can never call my own
For love can't live in paper mansions
That only stand until you've gone.

--- Instrumental ---

You've always been a dreamer dear and I'm a dreamer too
But I guess I've had too many of the kind that don't come true
So don't build me no mansions with paper walls so thin
That only stand until you leave again.

Don't build for me no paper mansions
That I can never call my own
For love can't live in paper mansions
That only stand until you've gone...
This song is from the album "Promises, Promises [Chart]", "Flower of Love [Pickwick]" and "Among My Greatest".
