Paper Sun is divided on the US album (We're A Fade, You Missed This is the ending). The song is complete on the UK 45 and LP.
The UK album has a different track lineup. The mono and stereo versions are different, too.
This great record had different titles and artwork in Canada, Sweden, Germany, and France.
Check this direct link to Discogs to see all the variations. I've already said too much!
