I saw her smiling in the rain
And all the people knew her name
Maybe she'd never love again
But no, she did not show her pain
I'll have to make a paper aeroplane
And send it her way

With none to lose and all to gain
I've got to speak to her today
But I just don't know what she'll say
I guess if she don't feel the same
I'll have to take my paper aeroplane and throw it all away

I don’t even know you boy
But you said you're the one for me
And you said that you loved me
I said it could never be

And nobody knows it
So maybe it’s all a dream
And nobody knows it
So maybe it’s all a dream

A secret path I found that wound around the mountain
Down below the tortoise and the hare
I’ve seen the lonely lion playing in the fountain
Give to me the burdens that you bear
And in the east I’ve seen the silver moon arising
There you were with flowers in your hair
But when I reach for you I see the image fading
Gone into the misty morning air

I've seen the carnival that whirls outside your window
Come with me and ride the ferris wheel
And when the summer comes we'll walk out in the country
Give to me the fears that you feel
And then I'll tell you all the things that I've been thinking
On the wind those distant bells appeal
And then the air goes still and all the birds are silent
In the new sunlight all is revealed

In the north I’ve seen a nest of golden eagles
Cared for by a mother overrun
And though the record plays, broken is the needle
The cakes she bakes are never underdone
And as the raven flies he calls out to the people
cast your eyes upon the setting sun
And all at once they sang a song from every steeple
Don't you know that this girl is the one
