"Paradise" as written by Martin James F. Craft and Samuel David Littlemore....
If we left this town, we could walk the earth together
If you let me down, I will live in you forever
I want you, I want you, I need you, I need you
I want you, I want you, I need you, I need you

If we could find a home, we could go through time together
If we could hold our own, devastate the night forever
There's no place where we can't go
There's no place where I have been
There's no limit I can show
There's no level inbetween
Jolene, I could have seen you there,
Jolene, I need you everywhere
I want you, I want you, I need you, I need you
I want you, I want you, I need you, I need you
Jolene, I could have seen you there
When I looked into your lifeless eyes, I saw you everywhere
There's no place where you can hide
There's no place that I can't find
There's no end to leave me clean
There's no reason I have seen

If you find me on my own, you could live your life forever
Shall we leave our world alone, maybe we'll go back or never
Jolene, I could've seen you there
When I looked into your lifeless eyes, I saw you everywhere
I want you, I want you, I need you, I need you
I want you, I want you, I need you, I need you

I want you, I want you, I need you, I need you
I want you, I want you, I need you, I need you

    General CommentThis is a very disturbing song lyrically and in Sumner's delivery. I can't quite make sense of it (this is New Order after all), but it seems pretty clear that the singer is obsessed with "Jolene" and from the line about "lifeless eyes," Jolene is dead. The tone of the song is threatening and obsessive--wanting, even needing, to be with Jolene but if it doesn't work out he will haunt her, track her down, ("I will live in you forever", "There's no place where you can hide") and maybe he even murdered her? But the talk about limits and levels in the second verse makes me wonder if perhaps this is really yet another song about drugs...which would be a lot less creepy.

    General CommentSumner sings about murder or similar a lot in his songs. His lyrics are probably designed to evoke the desperation at the end of a relationship. A lot of his work is on the subject of relationship problems, or seems to be.
