"Paradise" as written by and Gordon Clifford Nacio Herb Brown....
Hold me close now, hold me tight
Don't let go of me tonight
You're all I want, you're all I need
Hold me close now, hold me tight
And don't let go of me tonight
Sweet paradise, yeah

How I love all of those crazy little things you've said and done for me
You're the one for me
Darlin', dry your eyes, I can't stand to see you cry
Now just turn and walk away,
Don't look back when I say goodbye paradise

Days go by and life goes on,
I feel I've been away too long
What I would give to be with you,
Days go by and life drags on
Feel I've been away too long,
For much too long, yeah

And all the while that I'm away,
Don't let our love fade away, don't you fade away
Now as sure as the sun is gonna shine, the day will come
Now I'm waitin' for the day
There'll be no more sayin' goodbye paradise

My sweet paradise, you are the reason why it tears me up inside
And I break down and cry, didn't wanna say goodbye paradise

I'm comin' home to you tonight, comin' home to you tonight
So hold on tight, tonight I'm on my way back home to paradise

I'm so lost without you, I can't live without you
I've been away too long, now, tonight I'm on my way back home to you
My my paradise, my my paradise
To hold you in my arms, you're all that I adore
To see your smilin' face as I walk through the door
I'll never say goodbye again, no

    General Commentthis song is amazing. I think it's about the guy moving away from the person he loves and then realizing that that person is the one for him.

    General CommentIt is about a guy who has to go away from the one he loves (that is his paradise) for some reasons (ie work?) and he is counting the days to come back home to her and swearing he will never go away again.

    General CommentTo me, this is one of the best love songs ever! My opinion, a guy leaves his woman, reasons unknown...maybe they split...maybe a business trip...who knows!.. anyway, he misses her and realizes that he can't live life without her. He just can't wait to get back to her, because to him, she is his paradise...I love the line, "I'll never say goodbye again, no" That really makes me feel good....

    General CommentYou guys are pretty much right on with the meaning of the song. I just wanted to add that Jeff (the singer) writes the lyrics to all of Tesla's original songs. Everything he writes and sings comes from the heart, and this song is actually about him having to leave his woman to go on tour.
