Origami

These nights I just can't sleep
These walls are paper thin
I just can't take the heat
Something's trying to get in

Hit me, hit me, hit me, hit me

I ain't obeying no more
The way I'm bound to break
Took me down to my car
That's all that I can take

I've been folding myself, yeah
I really sold myself
With no escape
I've been folding myself
In little shapes
Trying to please you, trying to appease you
And ended up with ten thousand me's

When you made me say I was ice
Say you were the warmth to thaw me
Now I'm too broke to pay that price
The secret to love
The secret to love is not origami

I've been so many shapes
Since the day that I was born
From ugly duckling to a swan
And now a unicorn

I've been folding myself, yeah
I really sold myself
With no escape
I've been folding myself
In little shapes
Trying to compare, trying to ensnare you
Finally there was no one there

When you made me say I was ice
Say you were the warmth to thaw me
Now I'm too broke to pay that price
The secret to love
The secret to love is not origami
No, no, no

Oh how I miss the exchange
Of electricity
And now it feels so strange
To expose the real me

Ain't gonna fold myself, yeah
Just wanna behold myself
Well, I really mean it
I know I sold myself
Ain't gonna fold myself, yeah
The secret to love
The secret to love
The secret to love is not origami

Version 2: (from Doug's site) Bricrui's version:

These nights you just canít sleep

'Keep pokin' you with a pin

You feel really beat

You try to hide in a bin

And-I found you

found you, found you, found you

I come runnin' through the door

Too fast to take a break

I find you a really big bore

I think I'll bake me a cake

Si be lold ding pi nelf

Yeah

Ni tilly rold vi celf

While eating pate

Si be lold ding pi nelf

Really big rates

Trying to lease you

Making you eat pea soup

And running away while really glee

When we saw you

We went to play dice

We gambled to take over your body

Now we're too broke

To even buy rice

Something above

Crying out to something above, for my mommy
 
I've been watching your tapes

They made me really forlorn

From a little duck in a pond

My Fiona was born

Si be lold ding pi nelf

Yeah

Ni tilly rold vi celf

A really big wait

Si be lold ding pi nelf

Putting on bait

Using a green pear

And a big brass snare

And I accidentally caught a really big bear
 
When we saw you

We went to play dice

We gambled to take over your body

Now we're too broke

To even buy rice

There goes a dove

A big flyin' dove, for their mommy

Ney, ney, ney

I don't have any change

For the machines of candy

It's not that big of a range

For a few cents to lend me

Si be lold ding pi nelf

Yeah

Ni tilly rold vi ti celf

I took lil' bit

Bi villy vold wi gelf

Nay lonna rold hi telf

Yeah

There's no such love

There's no such love

There's no such love as there is for my own Fi
