Paper Sun  Traffic

Verse 1:

        Though you th[G]ink you're having good times
        With the b[E]oy that you just met (paper sun)
        [Gm]Kicking sand from beach to beach
        Your clo[D]thes all soaking wet
        But [G]if you look around and see
        A sh[E]adow on the run (on the run)
        [Gm]Don't be too upset because it's j[D]ust a paper sun


(guitar and sitar, 2X):

A pa... per sun

[repeat intro]

Verse 2:

        In the ro[G]om where you've been sleeping
        All your c[E]lothes are thrown about
        Cigar[Gm]ettes burn window sills
        Your [D]meter's all run out
        But [G]then again its nothing
        You just sp[E]lit when day is done
        Pitching [Gm]lips [?] to nowhere, hung up[D] on the paper sun

[repeat cborus]
[repeat intro]

        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
                          (T[D]oo much s[F]un w[G]ill b[D]urn)
Too much sun will burn
                          (T[D]oo much s[F]un w[G]ill b[D]urn)

Verse 3:

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

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

        [Asus4]Daylight breaks while you sleep on the s[A]and
        A[Asus4] seagull is stealing the ring from your h[A]and
        That[Asus4] boy who had given you so much f[A]un
        Has [Asus4]left you so cold in the p[A]aper sun

(continue and fade)
