Paradise lost

It’s late and I’m drunk and my stomach
Sounds like the hot water pipes in the attic room
And who’d have thought the sky could hold
so much snow inside of it just to let it go

So? The stars may shine and the moon may be blue
But what comes, comes from you?

So don’t turn around
cause that’s paradise lost
Don’t turn away Mersey rose
Nothing good could last forever
So don’t turn around
that’s paradise lost
The very place that we chose
Only dreams could last forever

I was meant to take you there
We could pack our bags and be on our way
Hold on to your childlike fears
All your worries, tantrums, tears
I don’t need to know

So? The stars may shine and the moon may be blue
But what comes, comes from you?

So don’t turn around
cause that’s paradise lost
Don’t turn away Mersey rose
Nothing good could last forever
So don’t turn around
that’s paradise lost
The very place that we chose
Only dreams could last forever

Hold it now,
there is something you should know
I would never turn away from you
My intentions are clear
That’s the only truth
My only wish is never to lose

So don’t turn around
cause that’s paradise lost
Don’t turn away Mersey rose
Nothing good could last forever
So don’t turn around
that’s paradise lost
The very place that we chose
Only dreams could last forever
