Too Close to Paradise
by Bill Conti



Too close to paradise and too close to hell
And sometimes the difference is too hard to tell

With empty pockets and old worn out seams
They say that you build them by writing your dreams
And I’m one step closer now with one more fight
In paradise, they tell me, that the sun shines all night
And maybe I’m crazy believing that stuff
But if this isn’t it, then it’s not enough

I’m too close to paradise and too close to hell
And sometimes the difference is too hard to tell
Now you can come with me, or I’ll go alone
But I’m too close, I’m too close to ever go home again

I’m one step closer now, my heart’s growing cold
But I’ll fall back in love again or so I’ve been told
Trouble is with me or out the door
But I’m too close, I’m too close to ever go home

I’m too close to paradise and too close to hell
And sometimes the difference is too hard to tell
Now you can come with me, or I’ll go alone
But I’m too close to paradise, too close to let it go
I’m too close to ever go
I’m too close to paradise
