Paradise

Album: Don't Kill the Magic (2014)
Play Video
  • Once upon a time a lonely boy with vision (vision)
    Heard about a little mermaid cast away (cast away)
    Saw a little bitty fin and started swimming (swimming)
    She disappeared with the sunlight once again (once again)

    He prayed unto his father
    As his lungs filled up with water

    Oh won't you take me to your paradise? (I want to go)
    Can I come play with you under the tide? (I want to go)
    I want to swim inside your ocean eyes (I want to go)
    Oh won't you take me to your paradise?

    When he woke up on the dry and he saw visions (visions)
    Of a life with a mermaid cast away (what a life, what a life it would be)
    Couldn't tell if it was love or just impatience (patience)
    Headed back with the black sand against the waves (against the waves)

    And there she wasn't cut up
    And with all his strength he called her

    Oh won't you take me to your paradise? (I want to go)
    Can I come play with you under the tide? (I want to go)
    I want to swim inside your ocean eyes (I want to go)
    Oh won't you take me to your paradise?

    Please don't drift away
    Please don't drift away
    Please don't drift away
    Please don't drift away
    Please don't drift away
    Please don't drift away

    So take me, oh won't you take me to your paradise? (I want to go)
    Can I come play with you under the tide? (I want to go)
    I want to swim inside your ocean eyes (I want to go)
    Oh won't you take me to your paradise?

    Oh won't you take me to your paradise? (I want to go)
    I've got to be with you under the white (I want to go)
    Oh won't you take me to your paradise? (I want to go)
    I've got to be with you
    I've got to be with you
    (I want to go)
    (I want to go)
    Paradise, paradise, paradise, paradise (I want to go)
    Paradise, paradise, paradise, paradise
    Paradise, paradise, paradise, paradise
    Paradise, paradise, paradise, paradise Writer/s: Adam Messinger, Mark Pellizzer, Nasri Atweh
