Chic Gamine – Paper Moon lyrics

Paper moon
Why do you shine so softly bright
Swallowing the rays of light
And holding them over the night

Paper moon
When will your cool light fall
Forgiving anything at all
Even the darkness swelling

So as the day grows cold and dull
Your eyes fragile beckon to all
The lovers who howl up to you
Paper moon

Cut out of my heart
Cut out of my heart

Paper heart
Cut out of pain and sorrow
With nothing left but hollows
Where wings once beat like a drum

Paper moon
Mysterious and lonely
I gather your light to me
As comfort for my paper heart

So as the day grows cold and dull
Your eyes fragile beckon to all
The lovers who howl up to you
Paper moon

Cut out of my heart
Cut out of my heart

Cut out of my heart
Cut out of my heart

Paper moon
Why do you shine so softly bright
Swallowing the rays of light
And holding them over the night
