Fear From Paradise
© 2000, Bar Scott
A thousand nights ago when we were young
I heard a voice that sang my name
And handed me a rose
How did he know?
A millionaire could not predict it
The tarot cards would not foretell
He’d paint even though he’d gone blind
How could he know fear from paradise?
Paradise from standing still in the dark?
The night before the wind was howling
The land was there they’d heard
But heaven knows
They sailed across the sea anyway,
Oh my God!
How could they know fear from paradise?
Paradise from standing still on the shore?
