It's Only A Paper Moon

It's Only A Paper Moon

Rufus Wainwright

I never feel a thing is real
When I'm away from you
Out of your embrace
The world's a temporary parking place

Mmm, mmm
A bubble for a minute
Mmm, mmm
You smile, the bubble has a rainbow in it

Say, its only a paper moon
Sailing over a cardboard sea
But it wouldn't be make-believe
If you believed in me

Yes, it's only a canvas sky
Hanging over a muslin tree
But it wouldn't be make-believe
If you believed in me

Without your love
It's a honky-tonk parade
Without your love
It's a melody played on a penny arcade

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
