Halfway To Paradise

I want to be your lover,

But your friend is all Iíll stay.

Iím only halfway to paradise Ė

So near, yet so far away.

I long for your lips to kiss my lips,

But just when I think they may.

You leave me halfway to paradise Ė

So near yet so far away.

Being close to you is almost heaven

But seeing you can do just so much

It hurts me so to know your heartís a treausre

And that my heart is forbidden to touch

So put your sweet lips close to my lips

And tell me thatís where theyíre gonna stay

Donít leave me halfway to paradise Ė

So near yet so far away.

Whoa, whoa, whoa, so near yet so far away
