Once upon a time a lonely boy with vision
Heard about a little mermaid cast away
Saw a little bitty fin and started swimming
She disappeared with the sunlight once again

He prayed unto his father
As his lungs filled up with water

Oh won't you take me to your paradise? (I want to go)
Can I come play with you under the tide? (I want to go)
I want to swim inside your ocean eyes (I want to go)
Oh won't you take me to your paradise? (I want to go)


Then he woke up on the dry and he saw visions
Of the life with a mermaid cast away
Couldn't tell if it was love or just impatience
Headed back with the black sand against the waves

There she wasn't cut up
And with all his strife he called her

Oh won't you take me to your paradise? (I want to go)
Can I come play with you under the tide? (I want to go)
I want to swim inside your ocean eyes (I want to go)
Oh won't you take me to your paradise? (I want to go)

Please don't drift away
Please don't drift away
Please don't drift away
Please don't drift away
Please don't drift away
Please don't drift away

Oh won't you take me to your paradise? (I want to go)
Can I come play with you under the tide? (I want to go)
I want to swim inside your ocean eyes (I want to go)
Oh won't you take me to your paradise? (I want to go)

Oh won't you take me to your paradise? (I want to go)
I've got to be with you under the white (I want to go)
Oh won't you take me to your paradise? (I want to go)
I've got to be with you
I've got to be with you
(I want to go)
(I want to go)
Paradise, paradise, paradise, paradise, paradise (I want to go)
Paradise, paradise, paradise, paradise, paradise (I want to go)
Paradise, paradise, paradise...
