Lyrics

Paper lanterns
Everybody needs to have their moment in the sun
You feel the heat, take the applause and then you’re done
Don’t be afraid when your light fades
You must remember how far you’ve come

Echoes of your former glory flicker in the glow
You falter now with fiery grace, a paper lantern in the snow

Everybody needs to feel the wind upon their face
You breathe it in, air fills your lungs like an embrace
You don’t have long the storm is too strong
It takes you over when you end the race

A moment in time, you promise you’re mine
You take me dancing under cloudless skies
