Track Name: Okay
Tests and medicines may not extend my life
I think that only living will
I wish the world would understand
I'm still just a teenage girl

PRE-CHORUS
This weight I drag behind me
Isn't what I want you to see

CHORUS
I just wanna be okay
I just wanna be the same
I don't want you to worry about me
So can't we just be okay

Two ticking time bombs fall in love
Can we save each other?
Our fuses burn down with every hour.
will each day lead to another?

PRE-CHORUS

CHORUS

Bridge
Something's can be covered up with cloth
That doesn't mean that we're ashamed
Because you can't obscure my heart
And in knowing you I'll never be the same
Knowing you I'll never be the same
Since knowing you I'll never be the same!

CHORUS
Track Name: Katherine
Katherine
Tell me how it all went wrong with
Katherine
Tell me everything that's wrong with them

Yeah I know that it's probably got
More to do with me than with them
I haven't figured out the formula yet

Katherine
I never could imagine this situation
Katherine
You are the source of every single frustration

But what if I could make all of this go away
In one breath
I haven't figured out the formula yet.

no romance in geometry
But all these roads have led me
To this little town
If road trips have destinations
I guess mine was you.

Now that I've found you here
It's time to break the streak and start my life
I didn't really need that formula
Track Name: Forget Tonight
Why am I here?
Where did you go?
I can't keep on trying
The same old road

It's quiet in the valley
I'm so far from home
I'm looking for your headlights
But they never come

So pour another drink!
Tell another lie.
Help me forgeeeeeeet tonight

Listen to the car noise
As the speakers bare my soul
The mirrors all face backward
So I will never know

You are the one I've waited for
You are perfect in your flaws
You are the one for me
Even if you're gone

Chorus
Track Name: The Girl of Your Dreams
I pledge alegiance things that matter
Records & books & things that I kept secret.

I'll climb in through your window
And take you away
Forget about what you've heard
And what people say

I'm Margo Roth Spiegelman
I'm the girl of your dreams
You'll fall in love step by step
with the clues that I leave

Through Margo Roth Spiegelman
You're in for a surprise
Get away from this Paper Town
And away from these lies

We'll take back the night
We'll stay out till dawn
Only a few weeks left to
Right these wrongs

My parents will never figure out
Where I've gone
Next time you'll find me
Maybe I'll be in New York or Rome?

I'm Margo Roth Spiegelman
I'm the girl of your dreams
You'll fall in love step by step
with the clues that I leave

Through Margo Roth Spiegelman
You're in for a surprise
Get away from this Paper Town
And away from these lies
Track Name: Crooked Hearts
Crooked hearts be out of time
Hearts like yours hearts like mine
Oh they beat...EVERYNIIIIGHT

When I met you I could not deny
You're designed to be a torture device
Now I know you and you can't hide
In the labyrinth behind your eyes

Chorus

Your moods are manic and I don't know why
Inside these books is where you hide
So many versions of you that I love
But it is never never never ever enough
