Larry John McNally – Just Like Paradise lyrics

The whole city is sleeping
Not me, I'm wide awake
Lookin' down at the lights
Man, there's people down there livin' a life
Makes mine look like paradise

I see you standing in the porch light
Sad and waving goodbye
There behind the screen door
On a summer night
And me behind the wheel of that old black Ford
The one we drove into the ground
Pedal to the floor, tryin' to give it more
Tryin' to break away from that town
Now here I am and
The whole city is sleeping
Not me, I'm wide awake
Lookin' down at the lights
Man, there's people down there livin' a life
Makes mine look like paradise
Just like paradise, just like paradise...

We were driving through a rainy night
Your face lit up in the passing headlights
And I could see that you were far away
Dreaming of another time and place
That's when it hit me
It's the things you love the most
You end up pushing away
And it ain't the times you lose
It's the dreams coming true
That make you most afraid

The whole city is sleeping
Not me, I'm wide awake
Lookin' down at the lights
Man, there's people down there livin' a life
Makes mine look like paradise

The whole world seems so small
From up here high above the street
Lookin' down at the light
And my troubles fade into the night
Like the lights into eternity
