Verse 1:

	             G
	Though you think you're having good times
	          E
	With the boy that you just met (paper sun)
	Gm
	Kicking sand from beach to beach
	        D
	Your clothes all soaking wet
	    G
	But if you look around and see
	    E
	A shadow on the run (on the run)
	Gm                               D
	Don't be too upset because it's just a paper sun

	 A                pa...    per      sun

[repeat intro]

Verse 2:

	In the room where you've been sleeping
	All your clothes are 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

[repeat chorus]

[repeat intro]

Bridge:

	D5 [w/sitar as per intro]
	Standing in the cool of my room
	Fresh cut flowers give me sweet perfume
	Too much sun will burn
	                    D        F   G    D
	                  (Too much sun will burn)
	Too much sun will burn
	                    D        F   G    D
	                  (Too much sun will burn)

Verse 3:

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

[repeat chorus]

Coda [separated from "Paper Sun", titled "We're A Fade, You Missed This",
      and moved to last track of US LP]

	Asus4              A
	 / / / /  / / / /  / / / /  / / / /

	Asus4                                   A
	Daylight breaks while you sleep on the sand
	 Asus4                                    A
	A seagull is stealing the ring from your hand
	    Asus4                           A
	That boy who had given you so much fun
	    Asus4                    A
	Has left you so cold in the paper sun

	(continue and fade)
