Song Description

Book theme with many clever plays on words to describe a 'story that i used to love' Alt country mid tempo tune with gorgeous male vocals and female harmony."Where did I lose you? Maybe chapter one? It's only in hindsight. Should have kept our reading glasses on. The pages blur. We lost our count. All this truth. Just a fairytale. In paperback. So you can fit it in your pocket"

Story Behind the Song

looking back and realizing you didnt understand what was going on at the time, but like a good book, upon second reading all becomes clear.

Broadjam Member Reviews

Really interesting song with extremely unique lyrics and concept. I especially enjoyed the harmonies and the vocals were spot on for the feel of the song. A very nice arrangement and has potential in a time piece film or TV show. Overall very well done!

    - Jay Gross

Nice vocal and overall feel to the song. well written and quite original.

Lyrics

9. Paperback Fantasy (3:45)
Here is a story that I used to know.
It's filled with a sorrow but will rise above
any ill feelings.
It started and ended and it taught me well.
How many pages went by wishing they.
Were not unconscious or unclear,
I lost my count.
All this truth, just a fairytale in paperback.
I'll speak to you slowly, I'll pronounce my doubts.
Listen for hopefulness in the grammar
and proofread my folly.
Tenderly press back on my dog-eared page.
Words can only hope.
To express the ageless wisdom printed on my face,
It's hidden well.
All this truth, just a fairytale. In paperback.
So you can fit it in your pocket.
Where did I lose you? Maybe chapter one?
It's only in hindsight.
Should have kept our reading glasses on.
The pages blur. We lost our count.
All this truth. Just a fairytale. In paperback.
So you can fit it in your pocket,
Change the picture in your locket.
The ending came and made no sense at all.
That was a story, that I used to love.
