"Moment in Paradise" as written by and Jeff Lynne....
Oh, yeah

She never cried, she only tried
To fly beyond her dreams
No walls around her mind

Deep inside she'd try to hide
That she was way beyond her means
No borders and no lines

She said that it's your duty to save your soul
To save it for someone
Moment in paradise
Just a moment in paradise
Oh, yeah

Moment in paradise
Just a moment in paradise
Oh, yeah

She floated out upon the wind
That blew my thoughts into the night
She knew the things she had to know

She drifted high above my mind
Blew my brains out, did alright
I think she knew it all along

She said that it's your duty to save your soul
To save it for someone
Moment in paradise
Just a moment in paradise
Oh, yeah

Moment in paradise
Just a moment in paradise
Oh, yeah
Oh, yeah, oh, yeah, oh, yeah

She said that it's your duty to save your soul
To save it for someone
Moment in paradise
Just a moment in paradise
Oh, yeah

Moment in paradise
Moment in paradise
Moment in paradise
Moment in paradise
Oh, yeah
Moment in paradise
Moment in paradise
Just a moment in paradise
