Paper Trumpets

lyrics

Paper trumpets, flower rings
Ephemera and all
Candy heart and fireworks and kickball
Paper trumpets, flower rings
They don't last for long
If you don't think they're worth it then you're wrong

The chill's refreshing, never cold
There's too much heat in play
If the streetlights shine enough, we'll stay

Every second's filled with hours
Every morning's gold
Please remember when I'm very old

Paper trumpets, flower rings
Ephemera and all
Candy heart and fireworks and kickball
Paper trumpets, flower rings
They don't last for long
If you don't think they're worth it then you're wrong

Doing cartwheels in the grass
Playing in the dirt
Getting into trouble, getting hurt

Real exploring, finding out
What this world contains
Walking through the woods and chasing planes

Paper trumpets, flower rings
Ephemera and all
Candy heart and fireworks and kickball
Paper trumpets, flower rings
They don't last for long
If you don't think they're worth it then you're wrong
Then you're wrong
