Verse 1 - (no guitar, but you can play the chords)

Bb                   F
When she was just a girl,
Dm                C
She expected the world,
        Bb                 F
But it flew away from her reach so
     Dm              C
She ran away in her sleep. 

And dreamed of 
Bb                  F    C              Bb
Para-para-paradise, Para-para-paradise, Para-para-paradise,
F              C     
Every time she closed her eyes.

The guitar starts to play here, but not loud : e|---15---|
                                               B|---15---|
                                               G|--------|
                                               D|--------| Repeat many times
                                               A|--------|
                                               E|--------|     

At the same time : Bb* F Dm C Bb* F Dm C


Verse 2 -

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