Lyrics

She had a dream and boy, it was a good one So she chased after her dream with much desire But when she got too close to her expectations Well, the dream burned up like paper in fire

[CHORUS] Paper in fire Stinking up the ashtrays Paper in fire Smoking up the alleyways Who's to say the way a man should spend his days Do you let him smoulder like paper in fire He wanted love with no involvement So he chased the wind that's all his silly life required And the days of vanity went on forever And he saw his days burn up like paper in fire [repeat CHORUS] There's a good life right across this green field And each generation stares at it from afar But we keep no check on our appetites So the green fields turn to brown like paper in fire [repeat CHORUS 2x] Paper in fire
