Broadjam Member Reviews

I love the Latin/Jimmy Buffet sound to this. Nice groove and rhythm. Instrumental choics are perfect for this song. Great keyboard entrance and performance. You have done a pretty good job on this song and it has great potential.

    - Brenda Craven

Well arranged and melodic pop/rock with a bit of country thrown in for good measure. Solid vocal performance and good movement between the sections.

    - Jeff Maguire

"Paradise"

VERSE 1
You've been there
I've been here
The gang all cheers
When you reappear
Limousines
The Rising star
A little too quick
And much too far away
You're asking for my time
Like it was mine to give
Then explain it all away
Between the movies and the rhymes
We try to get away
And share our quiet times, in.....
CHORUS
Paradise
In my arms
Smiling times
On a beach in Malibu
Paradise is here
Near the open sea and me
Not on "The Avenues"
Here's Paradise
VERSE 2
But, I'm confused
Back 'n forth
In and out
I hardly see your face
Paris clubs
The New York scenes
The photos show you
Dancing the night away
You're living in my mind
You never spend the day
Oh, you're always "on your way"
Between the movies and the rhymes
You're here to disappear
I wish you'd only stay, in....
REPEAT CHORUS
