  • Walking along on a sandy beach
    Everybody's laughing under cigarette trees
    And the water here is crystal clear and bright
    The air is rich with a Hawaiian breeze
    The grass is alive with sugar weeds
    And the hill tops tuck in the bay for the night

    And the palm trees make it feel like paradise
    But without you here there's nothing nice
    'Cause in your eyes
    That's my paradise

    When all the roads ahead of me stop looking new
    My paradise is you, my paradise is you
    When everything I know is slipping out of view
    My paradise is you, my paradise is you

    You
    My heaven is you

    The runners run and the teasers tease
    But none of these faces can set me free
    And the water here is crystal clear and bright
    When I compare this pleasure beach
    To all the places in your eyes that I have seen
    It could be anywhere, if you're not by my side

    And the palm trees make it feel like paradise
    But without you here there's nothing nice
    'Cause in your eyes
    That's my paradise

    When all the roads ahead of me stop looking new
    My paradise is you, my paradise is you
    When everything I know is slipping out of view
    My paradise is you, my paradise is you

    When all the roads ahead of me stop looking new
    My paradise is you, my paradise is you
    When everything I know is slipping out of view
    My paradise is you, my paradise is you

    You
    My heaven is you
    My heaven is you
    My heaven is you

    All my love is for you
    Darling it's only you who can stop my heart from crying

    (When all the roads ahead of me stop looking new) All my love is for you
    (My paradise is you, my paradise is you) Darling it's only you who can stop my heart from crying

    (When everything I know is slipping out of view) All my love is for you
    (My paradise is you, my paradise is you) Darling it's only you who can stop my heart from crying

    (When all the roads ahead of me stop looking new) All my love is for you
    (My paradise is you, my paradise is you) Darling it's only you who can stop my heart from crying

    (When everything I know is slipping out of view) All my love is for you
    (My paradise is you, my paradise is you) Darling it's only you who can stop my heart from crying

    (When all the roads ahead of me stop looking new) All my love is for you
    (My paradise is you, my paradise is you) Darling it's only you who can stop my heart from crying

    (When everything I know is slipping out of view) All my love is for you
    (My paradise is you, my paradise is you) Darling it's only you who can stop my heart from crying

    (When all the roads ahead of me stop looking new) All my love is for you
    (My paradise is you, my paradise is you) Darling it's only you who can stop my heart from crying

    (When everything I know is slipping out of view) All my love is for you
    (My paradise is you, my paradise is you) Darling it's only you who can stop my heart from crying

    All my love is for you
    (My heaven is you) Darling it's only you who can stop my heart from crying (All my love is for you)

    (My heaven is you) All my love is for you
    (My heaven is you) Darling it's only you who can stop my heart from crying (All my love is for you) Writer/s: BEN LANGMAID, ELLY JACKSON, IAN SHERWIN
