I wonder where paper lanterns go after they've been let go.


You're like a paper lantern
I let go too quickly
As I watched you fly higher and higher

Night falls upon us slowly
You whisper behind me
"Please forget those unpleasant memories"

Don't disappear now
(This wind)
Is gone without a sound

Silence pierces through me
I reach out for your face
Shards of time scatter all around me

Fireworks blossom skyward
The festival is over
How fleeting is this life we live

Seconds to turn hours
You're gone without a sound
And I know
I have to let you go

You're like a paper lantern
