Paper moon and paper stars
Meet me on the way to Mars
Meet me on the way away from here

Just get me far enough away
So that I donít have to face
All the places I donít measure up

Insomniac at 6 am
Afraid to sink, Afraid to swim
So I keep feeling sorry for myself

Paper doll without a dress
Oh and I am such a mess
So I just paint myself a perfect smile

Sometimes I canít be strong enough

And, I guess Iíve become
So afraid of
Coming undone

Paper moon and paper stars
Meet me on the way to Mars
Meet me on the way away from here

Keep my skeletons at bay
Or Iíll scare everyone away
If Iím not the girl they think I am

Sometimes I canít be strong enough

And, I guess Iíve become
So afraid of
Coming undone

I will hold on so tight to myself
So afraid of me
Iím coming undone
