When she was just a girl she expected the world
But it flew away from her reach
So she ran away in her sleep
Dreamed of para-para-paradise
Para-para-paradise, para-para-paradise
Every time she closed her eyes

When she was just a girl she expected the world
But it flew away from her reach
And the bullets catch in her teeth
Life goes on, it gets so heavy
The wheel breaks the butterfly
Every tear a waterfall
In the night the stormy night she'll close her eyes
In the night the stormy night away she'd fly

Dream of para-para-paradise
Para-para-paradise
Para-para-paradise

(Oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh)

She'd dream of para-para-paradise
Para-para-paradise
Para-para-paradise

(Oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh)

Sing, la la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la
And so lying underneath those stormy skies
She'd say, "oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
I know the sun must set to rise"

This could be para-para-paradise
Para-para-paradise

This could be para-para-paradise
(Oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh)

This could be para-para-paradise
Para-para-paradise

This could be para-para-paradise
Oh oh oh oh oh oh, oh, oh

This could be para-para-paradise
Para-para-paradise

This could be para-para-paradise
(Oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh)

This could be para, be paradise
Para-paradise
Para-paradise

(Oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh)

This could be para, be paradise
Para-paradise
Para-paradise

(Oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh)

    My InterpretationThis song is one of my favorites, its highly relatable. I think it means, the opening part, that there was a girl, who was young and happy. But she didn't know what life was coming for. But than (It flew away from her reach) her life got riped right out of her hands, and she(me) is now struggling to get through life. She has visions of how her life could be better, like thinking of what it would be like to fit in and be happy with a group that you messed up with. Than the girl thinks of death, (Life goes on it gets so heavy) but keeps moving on. At this point it gets harder for the girl, and is having a hard time with lots of stuff. She has visions more often of her "Paradise" as she stares at what her "Paradise" is. (if she can like aka a group of people being happy) and than she closes her eyes, keeps putting on a smile and carrying on. (Lying underneath, the stormy skies, she said oh, "I know the sun was set to rise." She realizes things will get better. She finds out her "Paradise is not with them, but with other people, than she finds a new "life" and knows that she will be okay, and things may still be hard, the worst of the "stormy skys" passed by,
