(I. Paradise)

Boy:
Well I remember ev'ry little thing as if it happened only yesterday
Parking by the lake and there was not another car in sight
And I've never had a girl looking any better than you did
And all the kids at school they were wishing they were me that night

And now our bodies are oh so close and tight
It never felt so good, it never felt so right
And we're glowing like the metal on the edge of a knife
Glowing like the metal on the edge of a knife
C'mon! Hold on tight!
C'mon! Hold on tight!

Girl:
Though it's cold and lonely
In the deep dark night
Boy: I can see paradise by the dashboard light

Girl: Ain't no doubt about it, we were doubly blessed
'Cause we were barely seventeen and we were barely dressed
Boy: Well, ain't no doubt about it
Baby got to go on and shout it
Ain't no doubt about it—we were doubly blessed

'Cause we were barely seventeen
And we were barely dressed

Baby doncha hear my heart, ou got it drowning out the radio?
I've been waiting so long for you to come along and have some fun
Well, I got to let ya know, no you're never gonna regret it
So open up your eyes: I got a big surprise, it'll feel all right—
Well I wanna make your motor run

And now our bodies are oh so close and tight
It never felt so good, it never felt so right
And we're glowing like the metal on the edge of a knife
Glowing like the metal on the edge of a knife
C'mon! Hold on tight!
Oh c'mon! Hold on tight!

Girl:
Though it's cold and lonely
In the deep dark night
Boy: I can see paradise by the dashboard light

Though it's cold and lonely
In the deep dark night:
Paradise by the dashboard light

You got to do what you can
And let Mother Nature do the rest
Well ain't no doubt about it, we were doubly blessed
'Cause we were barely seventeen and we were barely—

We're gonna go all the way in tonight
We're gonna go all the way in tonight, tonight
We're gonna go all the way in tonight
We're gonna go all the way in tonight, tonight

We're gonna go all the way in tonight
We're gonna go all the way in tonight, tonight
We're gonna go all the way in tonight
We're gonna go all the way and tonight's the night...

Ok, here we go, we got a real pressure cooker going here, two down, nobody on, no score, bottom of the ninth. There's the wind-up and there it is, a line shot at the middle - Look at him go! This boy can really fly! He's rounding first and really turning it on now, he's not letting up at all, he's gonna try for the second! The ball is bobbled out in center and here comes the throw, and what a throw! He's gonna slide in head first, he's out! No, wait, safe! Safe at second base, this kid really make things happen out there!
Batter steps up to the plate, here's the pitch and he's going, and what a jump he's got, he is trying for the third. There's the throw, it's in the dirt- safe at third! Holy cow, stolen base! Taking a pretty big lead out there, almost daring him to try and pick him off. The pitcher glances over, winds up, and it's bunted, bunted down third base line, the suicide squeeze is on! Here he comes squeeze play, it's gonna be close! Here's the throw, here's the play at the plate! Holy Cow! I think he's gonna make it!Phil 'Scooter' Rizzuto, Voice of the New York Yankees

(III. Praying for the end of time)

Boy:
I couldn't take it any longer, Lord I was crazed
And when the feeling came upon me like a tidal wave
Started swearing to my God and on my mothers grave
That I would love you to the end of time
I swore I would love you to the end of time!

So now I'm praying for the end of time
To hurry up and arrive
'Cause if I got to spend another minute with you
I don't think I can really survive
I'll never break my promise or forget vow
But God only knows what I can do right now

I'm praying for the end of time
It's all that I can do
Praying for the end of time
So I can end my time with you!!!

Boy:
Well it was long ago and it was far away
And it was so much better than it is today.....

Girl:
It never felt so good
It never felt so right
And we're glowing like the metal on the edge of a knife......
