Daryl Hall & John Oates – Running From Paradise lyrics

Words: d. hall, s. allen
Music : d. hall

I caught you staring at the ceiling
Captured by the mirror up there
Ok ok I see the separation
Makin love down here
While youre watching in the air
If youre looking for love
And you dont find it in my eyes
Then youre running from paradise.
Look before you leap, darling
Dont you know that youre
Running from paradise
I gave you every pose you asked for
Played every game you fantasize
I called your bluff, were running out of breath
Youre hooked on looking -- not on what you find
