about

“I’ve learned to like my here and now, but I need escape and that’s allowed”

Our take on one of the all-time greatest filk songs, Talis Kimberley's Paper Worlds.

lyrics

It isn't just space
Though I hope we'll take our place out there
Like the stories say we will
Where other stars shine
It isn't just space

And it isn’t just time
Though the future casts bring echoes back
And the past ensnares me still
Through centuries’ gaze
It isn’t just time

And I've learned to like my here and now
But I need escape and that's allowed
I can leave behind this madding crowd

Here are paper worlds to draw me in
I can taste life lived in a different skin
There are paper worlds that have kept me sane
I read them again and again and again
Here are paper worlds I hold so dear
Others still that ache till the wound runs clear
These paper worlds stir my soul
To break my heart and leave me whole

And it isn't just me
Who filled my childhood summers
And my winter nights with these
I know
It isn't just me

And isn’t it fine?
How such a tiny doorway
Lets us in like Alice
Squeezed into words
Isn’t it fine?

And I've learned to like my here and now...

Here are paper worlds...

There are paper worlds where no-one dies
Where all are mad, where vision lies
Where rivers run, where arrows fall
Where planets burn, where sirens call
There are paper worlds where the sun turns cold
Where love is banned, where none grow old
Where heroes fail, where heroes win
You can taste life lived in a different skin

There are paper worlds with trees that walk
Where dragons soar, where spaceships talk
These paper worlds kept us sane
Again and again and again

These paper worlds I hold so dear
Till the wound runs clear
These paper worlds stirred my soul
To leave me whole

And it isn’t just me
And no it wasn’t just you
Who has lived in paper worlds
Paper worlds
Paper worlds
