Well, I had just checked in when the sun came up
After ten hours on the bus.
I was staring at the stains on the ceiling, baby,
Trying not to think about us.
But then someone in a room five-oh two
Started doing the thing that we used to do.
Every bang, every boom,
It was just like it was happening in my own room.

[Chorus:]
'Cause they've got paper walls, paper walls,
Paper walls... Ooh, yeah.

I closed the curtain, I shut the light,
I heard the highway moan.
Next thing I remember they were having a fight,
And then, she was all alone.
I heard her cry in the darkest hour,
I heard it echo in the hotel shower,
I heard her start packing her things, so,
I called her number and I heard it ring...

[Chorus:]
Right through the paper walls, paper walls,
Paper walls, oooh yeah, now.

(Instrumental solo - Over first part of Verse 3)

I've never seen such a sight before,
The way she looked when she opened the door.
Hush now baby don't make a sound,
When all your love comes a-tumblin' down...

[Chorus:]
Just like a paper wall, paper wall,
Paper wall, Ooh just like a paper wall.

(Repeat and fade)
It ain't the road that kills you, baby,

It's the all night calls;

It ain't the road that kills you, baby,

It's just the paper walls
