About Paradise

"Paradise" is a song by American rapper LL Cool J featuring American R&B singer Amerie. Produced by Trackmasters, the track was released in early 2003 as the second single from LL Cool J's ninth studio album, 10 (2002). It also appears on the soundtrack to the 2003 film Deliver Us from Eva, in which LL Cool J stars alongside Gabrielle Union. Singer Tweet was originally slated to provide vocals but Amerie was eventually chosen instead.

If you need me baby I'm, for, real
The rest of your life, I'll take you to paradise,
If you want it baby just, be, real
The rest of your life, I'll take you to paradise,
I'm gonna give-a-you all my love, yeah

We went through this before
Actin' like the L's can't bag 'em no more
Nightgown draggin' on the heated marble floor
Flash Cartier when you open up the door, slide these on baby

So butter, still relate to the gutter
Just your life style's different, spirit uplifted
Fell in love with a cat who's gifted
Turn you back to paradise, damn I missed it

Pop a bottle, light a purple candle
I got somethin' that you can't quite handle, that's why you love me
Pour bubbly, glow from the flame make your skin shine lovely
I'm saying baby

Touch it why don'tcha (oh) touch it why don'tcha (oh)
Touch it why don'tcha (hey) touch it why don'tcha (mm)
Hey girl, aw, girl!
Hey girl, I want to rock your world

[Chorus]
If you need me baby I'm, for, real
The rest of your life, I'll take you to paradise,
(Paradise, is very nice)
If you want it baby just, be, real
The rest of your life, I'll take you to paradise (uh, uh)
I'm gonna give-a-you all my love, yeah

Next phase is this
Black sand, Tahiti, ten days to reminisce
God's my witness (uh)
I paid the price for paradise, so I'm livin' this

I never limit myself, the L's fearless
Lay back while I illuminate the darkness
Like it smooth don'tcha
Make it move won'tcha, think I won't?

Take you to your peak I know them other cats don't
And it won't stop, this is beyond paper
First I get your mind right, then I might drape ya
Never pimpin', raise my girls well

Young thoroughbreds get schooled by Uncle L.L.
See-double, L tattooed on the bubble
I lay the mink down, let you walk over a puddle
True love is so rare
But don't you worry I ain't going nowhere

[Chorus] 

Trust me, trust me, trust, me, baby
Rest of your life I'll take you to paradise
I'll take you to paradise, oh
So won't you try me, try me, try, this, lady
Rest of your life I'll take you to paradise
I'm gonna give-a-you all my love, yeah

Belly to belly, one hand on the jelly
At the telly on the celly, get that money Elle
Please believe it, if the mind can conceive it
Then the man can achieve it, you gotta breathe it

And I breathe deep, I'm one with the universe
Minimum, ten percent go to God first
Lay back baby, close your eyes
Ice on the pinky finger froze your thighs

So much shade baby, the water bed fries
Walk around nude in the suite yelling, "Recognize!"
Do your dance, baby pour me a class
It feels so good to have the world in a smash

Touch it why don'tcha (oh) touch it why don't ya (oh)
Touch it why don'tcha (hey) touch it why don't ya (mm)
Hey girl, aw, girl!
Hey girl, I want to rock your world

[Chorus]

Yea yea, gotta keep your eyes on the prize baby
Sky's the limit
If you can see it, you can be it
Ha ha, it's on you, word up
Everybody put your hands in the air
It's high time baby
One love, one God, recognize

If you need me, just call me
Said if you want me, just be for real
And if you like me, come and talk to me
And if you want me, tell me how you feel

[Chorus]
