The Other Side of Paradise Songtext

The Other Side of Paradise Songtext

When I was young and stupid
My love left to be a rock and roll star
He told me, "Please don′t worry"
Wise little smile that spoke so safely

He booked a one-way ticket
Out West, that's where they make it
Six kids stuck in a bedsit
To sun swept poolside riches

He met a girl who wore Versace
Pink feather coats and jumbo jewellery
Gonna be a hoop phenomenon
He′s gonna be Hakeem Olajuwan

He's got a gold Camaro
He said over the payphone
I try to keep my cool but
My life turns in slow motion


Bye-bye, baby blue
I wish you could see the wicked truth
Caught up in a rush, it's killing you
Screaming at the sun you blow into
Curled up in a grip when we were us
Fingers in a fist like you might run
I settle for a ghost I never knew
Super paradise I held on to
But I settle for a ghost

Where I was from in NOLA
No one left to be a rock and roll star
He′d stay and treat his lady
Give everything to his new baby

I miss him, don′t you blame me
That boy went stone cold crazy
Caught up in camera lust, he's
Chasing that pappy pipe dreams


I know you don′t but I
I know you don't, but I still try
My thunder shook him down
My thunder came and shook him down
That girl is gone but I
That girl is gone, but I still try
I think it′s over now
The bullet hit but maybe not
I feel so fucking numb
It hits my head and I feel numb
My body's looking wrong
My body′s looking wrong
My body's looking wrong

Bye-bye, baby blue
I wish you could see the wicked truth
Caught up in a rush, it's killing you
Screaming at the sun you blow into
Curled up in a grip when we were us
Fingers in a fist like you might run
I settle for a ghost I never knew
Super paradise I held on to
But I settle for a ghost
