Intro: 
    - Bb C Dm F  - x3 
    - Bb F C  -    x2
    - Gm Bb F C  - x4


Gm                  F
When she was just a girl
Dm               C
She expected the world
        Gm                 F
But it flew away from her reach
        Dm              C
So she ran away in her sleep
                Gm        Bb
And dreamed of para-para-paradise
F        C
Para-para-paradise
Gm         Bb
Para-para-paradise
F              C
Every time she closed her eyes


Interlude: - Gm F Dm C  - x2


Gm                   F
When she was just a girl
Dm                C
She expected the world
        Gm                 F
But it flew away from her reach
         Dm                   C
And the bullets catch in her teeth
Bb               F 
Life goes on and gets so heavy
F                    C
The wheel breaks the butterfly
Bb            F
Every tear a waterfall
        Bb               F                   C
In the night the stormy night she close her eyes
        Bb               F              C
In the night the stormy night away she flies
              Gm        Bb
And dream of para-para-paradise
F         C
Para-para-paradise
Gm          Bb
Para-para-paradise
F             C
Oh oh ohhh oh ohhh oh ohh ohh
Gm        Bb
Para-para-paradise
F         C
Para-para-paradise
Gm        Bb
Para-para-paradise
F           C
Oh oh oh oh ohhh oh oh oh


Interlude: - Bb C Dm F  - x3


    Bb         F                  C
So lying underneath those stormy skies
          Bb   F                C
She said oh I know the sun must set to rise
               Gm       Bb
This could be para-para-paradise
F         C
Para-para-paradise
              Gm        Bb
This could be para-para-paradise
F             C
oh oh ohhh oh ohhhhh oh oh oh
              Gm        Bb
This could be para-para-paradise
F         C
Para-para-paradise
              Gm        Bb
This could be para-para-paradise
F           C
oh oh oh oh ohhhhh oh oh oh


Interlude: - Gm Bb F C  - x2


              Gm        Bb
This could be para-para-paradise
F         C
Para-para-paradise
              Gm        Bb
This could be para-para-paradise
F           C
oh oh oh oh ohhhh oh oh oh

  1. Hardly anyone can sing +5 though so although it sounds nice… it’s not much use

    • why can hardly anyone sing this? I don’t know much about music so it’s an actual question :D is it because of the range of singing?

  2. PurpleRose

    I’m really bad at figuring out strumming patterns. I know I’m not technically allowed to ask, but what do you guys use?

  3. anigsofie

    +5 is really nice

  4. +2 is pretty easy for new players!

  5. Ukumaster123

    awesome I love this song thanks for making this!!

  6. The interlude sounds a bit off to me :/ otherwise really good! ^^

  7. When it says Para-Para I mute it

  8. Capo 1st Fret, sounds a lot nicer…

  9. Putting two half steps UP is so much easier to play. Am G Em D.

  10. Going it too high so it put it two half steps – sounds better too

  11. It’s also, “…And the bullets kept shooting.”

  12. Really good on ukulele

  13. its ”the wheel breaks the butterfly”
