I'm so weird I'm normal
-Khalil, a friend


listen silently, crying tears of gold
haunting melody,stories that were never told.
wishing blindly on a shooting star,
pray to God I'd never have to go that far.

CHORUS:
cuz i am scared
that one day soon
I'll get lost in the darkness following a paper moon.
no one knows
the times i tried
to keep holding on, never say goodbye.

pretend that the world was not the same
pretend life is just a simple game
where people cry
and then they lie
just to save themselves.

i thought I'd steal a rainbow
and keep it to myself
take a stupid picture and frame it on the shelf.
the younger days are gone
but not the younger years
diamonds scattered on the floor
like broken tears.

CHORUS:
cuz i am scared
that one day soon
i'll get lost in the dark
following a paper moon.
no one knows
the times I've tried
to keep holding on, never say goodbye.

hopes on lines
just like laundry
going to the edge
past the boundary.
i play silly games
but i never gave up
my dreams.
my life is gone or so it seems.

whoa...whoa..when the paint is red
and the hurt is black
then i can move forward, never to look back.

CHORUS[repeat 2X]
I'm gonna follow that paper moooon.
