Album: Soul Searching (2019)
Charted: 64 91

Songfacts®:

  • Here, Bazzi sings about those perfect moments and feelings that memories are made of.

    I feel like we in paradise, paradise
    Don't know if it's the drink I poured
    But I swear I've never loved you more
    When you right here, I come alive


    Bazzi explained to Genius that the "Paradise" in this song is not a physical place such as a beach. Rather it is a feeling which has been bottled; the singer can continue to enjoy those moments when he looks back at them.

    Bazzi added: "For me, I always think so vividly of my Friday nights when I was in high school. I feel nostalgia and mystery around them and I really wanted to capture those feelings in this record."
