PARADISE

 

 

Where the river

runs to black
I take the schoolbooks

 from your pack
Plastics, wire

and your kiss
The breath of eternity

on your lips

 

In the crowded

marketplace
I drift from face to face
I hold my breath and

close my eyes
I hold my breath and

close my eyes
And I wait for paradise
And I wait for paradise

 

The Virginia hills have

gone to brown
Another day, another

sun goin' down
I visit you in

another dream
I visit you in

another dream

I reach and

feel your hair
Your smell lingers

in the air
I brush your cheek

with my fingertips

I search for you

on the other side
Where the river

runs clean and wide
Up to my heart

the waters rise
Up to my heart

the waters rise

 

I sink 'neath the

water cool and clear
Drifting down,

I disappear
I see you on the

other side
I search for the

peace in your eyes
But they're as empty

as paradise
They're as empty

as paradise

 

I break above

the waves
I feel the sun

upon my face

I taste the void

upon your lips
And I wait

for paradise
And I wait

for paradise
