I want to be your lover
But your friend is all I stay
Don't leave me halfway to paradise
So near yet so far away

I want your sweet lips next to my lips
But just when I think they may
You leave me halfway to paradise
So near yet so far away

Oh, being close to you is almost heaven
For I still can only so much
It hurts me some, to me your heart's a treasure
That my heart is willing to touch

So put your sweet lips next to my lips
And tell me that's where they'll stay
Don't leave me halfway to paradise
So near yet so far, so near yet so far
So near yet so far away
