Song Description

This song enables you to 'see' and 'hear' Paradise. It's a sunny, happy, Balinese reggae song, which conjures up images of Paradise through lyrics such as, 'jump off the boat, shoes full of sand'. It's interspersed with a unique, local vocal style called, 'Kecak'. Kecak is a Balinese way of using 'voice' but it's not singing, speaking or chanting. Through the Kecak, overlaid with 'suling' (a Balinese flute), you can 'hear' what an unusual, beautiful, enchanting and mesmerising place Paradise really is!

Story Behind the Song

I was on a small island looking back across the ocean at beautiful Bali. It's majestic volcano, Mount Agung, dominated the north. It was surrounded by blue sky from east to west and lavished with unlimited, radiant, sunshine. I had my guitar in my hand and a one way ticket for the boat trip back home... to my tropical paradise island of Bali. How could I 'not' write this song?

Ticket to Paradise

I like in the morning see your smile
make me happy for a while
And then I leave you all the day
to make money for holiday

Don't forget
One way ticket to...

Run away from ordinary
find a new reality
Leave you old life far behind
you gonna go to PARADISE

But don't forget
One way ticket to

wakes up in the east

sunshine never cease

goes beyond the west

better than the best I'm telling you

Paradise, Paradise, Paradise, Paradise...


Come on lets go and catch the boat
don't forget untie the rope
Keep my guitar in my hand
jump off the boat, shoes full of sand
