Captured By Paradise

 

She's the only one I call on in my time of distress

Slippin' through my fingers in her whitewater dress

Her golden lipstick poisoned  me so gently in the night

I been captured by paradise

 

A maiden voyage of dreamin' on has stowed away my youth

Sailin' to my destiny on one drop of truth

Crystal clear memories splashes warm on my mind

I been captured by paradise

 

            Deeper and deeper I am fallin' in love

            Closer and closer she and I become

            No! I can't live without her just look in my eyes

            I been captured by paradise

 

Shipwrecks of ol' pirates who have failed on her shores

Crashin' in the waves of her cool black heart

Her lovers they outnumber me in mournin' she' gone

I been capture by paradise

 

(Chorus)

 

Now I'm buried in this sea still alive in distress

Slippin' through my breathin' in my coffin o' flesh

Her golden lipstick poisoned me so gently in the night

I been captured by paradise

 

(Chorus)

(Chorus)
