Lyrics

1st Verse

I had a dream of living in a beautiful new place
Far from the noise and city lights, with lots of open space
The urban sprawl was closing in and tightening its vice
Pulled up my roots, and planted them out south of Paradise

2nd Verse

I had to leave my old friends, had to start my life anew
But all the new friends that I've made, they're solid and they're true
Looking back now, all the hard work was worth the sacrifice
To be among the lucky few out south of Paradise

Chorus

Wherever fate might carry me, no matter where I roam
There's only one place calling to me, bringing me back home
A dark haired, green eyed beauty waits with open arms each night
Somewhere north of Eden, somewhere south of Paradise

Bridge

The panorama from our front porch is an awesome sight
The coyote's howl drifts through the open window late at night

Chorus

Wherever fate might carry me, no matter where I roam
There's only one place calling to me, bringing me back home
A dark haired, green eyed beauty waits with open arms each night
Somewhere north of Eden, somewhere south of Paradise

Tag

My dark haired, green eyed beauty waits to snuggle me tonight
Somewhere north of Eden, somewhere south of Paradise
