lyrics

In a whirlwind through Vienna
Nighteen thirty two
Three weeks on the continent
Spent two of them with you
Held hands between the streetcars
Hummed operatic tunes
We kissed behind the ferris wheel
Under crescent paper moon

Paper moon paper moon
Photographed with you
Camera flash left starry eyed
But I had to leave too soon
Remember me, indefinitely
By that paper moon

In a letter to San Francisco
Nineteen thirty eight
Dark sky gone red and black
Been dreaming of escape
But the doorways west were closing
And you had to get out soon
So you made your way to Prague by night
By the light of a paper moon

Paper moon paper moon
A photograph of two
Torn edges in a canvas bag
All the fire around you
Remember me, indefinitely
By that paper moon

In a camp by the border
Nineteen forty five
Broke down walls, apocalypse
You were somehow still alive
We scrounged up food where we could find it
Scrap paper, a half bombed out room
You came back to life under West German skies
Woke up to a paper moon

Paper moon paper moon
Paper moon paper moon
Remember me, indefinitely
By that paper moon
