Well you think you had a good time
With the boy that you just met
 Kicking sand from beach to beach 
Your clothes all soaking wet
But if you look around and see
A shadow on the run
Don't be too surprised if its just a paper sun

Ahh paper sun, ahh paper sun

In the room where you've been sleeping 
All your clothes all thrown about
 Cigarettes burn window sills 
Your meter's all run out
But then again its nothing 
You just split when day is done
 Pitching lips to nowhere, hung up on the paper sun

 Standing in the cool of my room
 Fresh cut flowers give me sweet perfume
Too much sun will burn!

When you're feeling tired and lonely 
You see people going home
You can't make the train fare
Or the six pence for the phone 
And icicles your crying 
From your cheek have just begun 
Don't be sad, good times are had
 Beneath the paper sun

 Daylight breaks while you sleep on the sand
A seagull is stealing the ring from your hand
The boy who had given you so much fun
Has left you so cold in the paper sun
