Lynn Anderson - Paper Mansions Lyrics




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

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

    I never heard Lynn Anderson sing this before, was a Dottie West as far as I knew but Lynn Anderson sounds good with this song!!

  2. Michael Galecki

    I remember the first time I heard this song was on a 45rpm

    So many memories with her music. When my dad left my mom she would play this song and we would sing together.

    I love this song, this was a hit for Dottie West
