"Beached" as written by and Angelo Badalamenti....
Trust me
It's Paradise
This is where the hungry come to feed
For mine is a generation that circles the globe
in search of something we haven't tried before
so never refuse an invitation
never resist the unfamiliar
never fail to be polite
and never outstay your welcome

just keep your mind open and
suck in the experience
and if it hurts
you know what... it's probably worth it

you hope, and you dream
but you never believe that
something is going to happen for you
not like it does in the movies
and when it actually does
you expect it to feel different
more visirale
more real
i was waiting for it to hit me

i still believe in paradise
but now at least i know it's not some place you can look for
cause it's not where you go
it's how you feel for a moment in your life
and if you find that moment it lasts forever

it lasts forever
lasts forever
(fade out)

    General CommentThis song is soooo good. It just says that you can't go around looking for paradise specifically as a place, it's more something you feel at a certain time.

    General CommentThey took his exact speech from The Beach which is cool. Bizarre but good movie.

    The "It lasts forever" fading out gets me EVERY TIME. I have to go back and listen to it like 5643 times.
