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 

Ah paper sun, ah 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
