It's Only a Paper Moon Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
I never feel a thing is real
When I'm away from you
Out of your embrace
The world's a temporary parking place
Verse 2
Mmm, mm, mm, mm
A bubble for a minute
Mmm, mm, mm, mm
You smile, the bubble has a rainbow in it
Verse 3
Say, its only a paper moon
Sailing over a cardboard sea
But it wouldn't be make-believe
If you believed in me
Verse 4
Yes, it's only a canvas sky
Hanging over a muslin tree
But it wouldn't be make-believe
If you believed in me
Verse 5
Without your love
It's a honky-tonk parade
Without your love
It's a melody played in a penny arcade
Verse 6
It's a Barnum and Bailey world
Just as phony as it can be
But it wouldn't be make-believe
If you believed in me
