Paradise

(Ronda Matson)

When I look back on all the things that I have done,
life’s many battles lost and oh, so many won,
it doesn’t matter now,
the world can spin, my love.
You are the one I’m dreamin’ of.
You are the one I’m dreamin’ of.

When I look back on all the things I meant to do,
fifty years or more,
what we’ve been goin’ through,
it doesn’t matter now,
the world can spin, my love.
You are the one I’m dreamin’ of.
You are the one I’m dreamin’ of.

You are my paradise, my sweet paradise.
No thinkin’ twice.
Paradise.

So look ahead where grass is green and flowers grow.
The rollin' wave and evenin’ breeze do surely know
that nothing matters now.
The world can spin, my love.
You are the one I’m dreamin’ of.
You are the one I’m dreamin’ of.

You are my paradise, my sweet paradise.
No thinkin’ twice.
Paradise.

I look ahead where grass is green.
Our flowers grow.
That rollin' wave and the evenin’ breeze,
they surely know
that nothing matters now.
The world can spin, my love.
You are the one I’m dreamin’ of.
You are the one I’m dreamin’ of.
