ALONE IN PARADISE

This song follows the theme that the "grass is always greener on the other side". I imangined someone envying my single lifestyle only to find they had "forsaken all that matters". James
Alone in Paradise
Thinking of a time when I was free to roam
No one to question what I do
I'd come and go just as simply as I pleased
Such were my days before you
So I set a dream and made it so
The gods, they gave it all
Never thinking wrong from right
Now my life is living a world without you
I stand alone in paradise
Now I’m free to watch what ever I may wish
I eat and drink as I may choose
But something of this world is terribly amiss
I can’t stop thinking of you
How I set a dream and made it so
The gods, they gave it all
Never thinking wrong from right
Now my life is living a world without you
I stand alone in paradise
Some dream chances ain’t worth taking
Like this life anew
If all that matters is forsaken
And I stand alone without you
Beware you dreams the gods may answer
Like this life anew
A paradise of hollow rapture
I stand alone without you
Now all that matters is forsaken
I stand alone without you
