about

"Paradise is one of those tunes that has been playing for a couple of minutes before you take it in and realise that you’ve been listening all along, in a subconscious my god this is wonderful way. That’s because it is quiet and demure but packs so many powerful emotions it will cut through the outside noise before finally taking up residency in your daylight psyche. So demanding is it of your attention that by the time the brass kicks in you may well be in floods of tears at the simple genius of it all." - Kevin, mp3hugger.com

lyrics

Tired eyes and thoughts that scatter
I’ve been so restless for a while
Lost the course with no direction
Missed the target by a mile

While I dream
I dream of when the days of holding back
And all this talk can cease
Oh I dream
About a place where time it goes to rest
And we can be at peace

Ooh paradise
Ooh paradise

Roads that curve and bridge too narrow
For the both of us to fall
Water seed and soil too shallow
For anything to grow at all

So I dream
Dream of when the days of holding back
And all this talk can cease
Oh I dream
About a place where time it goes to rest
And we can be at peace
