Paradise

So, I went walking, listening to music, and came across my favorite Kenny G song, Paradise. I found myself singing the words I’d written years ago, despite the fact that I’d forgotten I’d done so. Pretty funny, all things considered.

Still, I might as well share my walk with you. (My scenery wasn’t quite so spectacular, but you get the effect.)

hold me paradise
show me paradise
remind me with your sighs
where heaven lies

run your fingers there
pray kiss me everywhere
my empty arms
long for you
we’re near to heaven’s gate
let’s pray it’s not too late
if we run we can catch
the falling sun
we’ll ride it past the skies
to where the stars go hide
and make it our
sweet refuge

Chorus:
running from them
running to you
paradise
singing songs that only
you know
paradise
and I know that one day
we’ll smile down from paradise
cause it’s paradise
with you

hold me paradise
come show me paradise
remind me with your sighs
where heaven lies
i can feel you there
kissing me everywhere
your begging lips
don’t know goodnight
baby, if you dare
just let me take you there
past promises
you’ll find the truth
and i’ll show you, dear
my love will stay right here
dependable
as morning sun

Chorus:
and i’m
running from them
running to you
paradise
singing words that only
you know
paradise
and I know that one day
we’ll smile down from paradise
cause it’s paradise
with you

repeat, ad lib out

Oh, and if you happen to know Mr. Gorelick, give him my regards.
