Icehouse – Paradise lyrics
One step (one step) that takes you closer to heaven
One road (one road) that stretches out ahead
One word (one word) that drives you to the point of decision
One wave (one wave) that closes on a drowning man
One man who never knew the meaning of resistance
So now the turning tide will take another prayer 2 paradise (paradise)

Tonight (tonight), a mist is rolling with the river
Tonight (tonight), the rain is coming down
Tonight (tonight), you reach out to the point of decision
One wave (one wave) that closes on a drowning man
A man who never knew the meaning of resistance
And now the turning tide will take another prayer
And where it falls... Nobody knows...

Oh paradise (oh paradise, oh paradise)
Oh paradise (oh paradise, oh paradise)
Oh paradise (oh paradise, oh paradise)
Oh paradise (oh paradise, oh paradise)

One step that takes you closer to heaven
This wave that closes on a drowning man
A man who never knew the meaning of forever
So now the turning tide will take another prayer
And where it falls... Nobody goes...

To paradise (to paradise, to paradise)
Oh paradise (oh paradise, oh paradise)
Oh, oh paradise (paradise, paradise)
One prayer to paradise (paradise, paradise)
One prayer to paradise (paradise, paradise)
Oh paradise (oh paradise, oh paradise)
Oh paradise (oh paradise, oh paradise)
One step to paradise (paradise, paradise) oh paradise
