Don't know what to do
Don't know how we made it this far
This California weather
The summer in December
Let me go, Just let me go
Finally found a way
Finally found a way to shut you out
I'm lost and gone forever
Now has turned to never
Just let me go

I'm just slipping away down the coast
And I'm so far away from home
Never returning
Paradise Burning

Don't know what to do
Don't know if it's true anymore
(You can lie about it)
Like a wave that's finally broken
(Tell me why about it)
I'm running back to the ocean
(Gotta let me go)
Let me go just let me go
Finally figured out
Finally figured out what I am
(What to do about it)
I'm lost and gone forever
(Without you I'm drowning)
Now has turned to never
(Gotta let me go)
Just let me go

I'm just slipping away down the coast
And I'm so far away from home
Never returning
Paradise Burning
Feeling so alone
Strangers looking through me like a ghost
And I'm so far away away from home
Never returning
Paradise Burning

And it fills my lungs
It couldn't get any better
And it fills my lungs
I'm falling into the fire

I'm just slipping away down the coast
And I'm so far away from home
Never returning
Paradise Burning
Feeling so alone

I'm just slipping away down the coast
And I'm so far away from home
Never returning
Paradise Burning
Feeling so alone
Strangers looking through me like a ghost
And I'm so far away away from home
Never returning
Paradise Burning

    General CommentParadise burning makes me imagine some day where it's just so fucking hot and uncomfortable. I have no idea what the lyrics mean though...

    General Commentthe song sorta sounds like a song about slavery and trying to escape which explains "I'm just slipping away down the coast
    And I'm so far away from home
    Never returning
    Paradise Burning
    Feeling so alone"
