Paradise/the Spell Songtext
I feel you trying
Though in my heart I know you're lying
And though your love for me is dying
I see you crying

It's the pain of your secret heart
Bringing you to tears
Filling you with fears
For your mind and for your soul
I touch you softly now
Borne on by hope until the end somehow
I am a man and I must keep my vow
I must go on

But the wall of your secret heart
Keeps my distance clear
Helps my footsteps fall
Back in line inside my mind

What's the use you turned me loose
And left me here to cry
Where's the love we talked about
Where's my sunny sky

Secret hearts and sorry tales
Will never help love grow
Spread your wings my daunted soul
The time has come to go
I will not be hurried down
Or blackened by your lies
I must go and find my dream
And live in paradise
(Repeat and fade)

What do you think I am? Do you think I'm dreamin'?
Don't you know I know what it is you're schemin'?
Who'd ya think gave you the right,
hidden by the dead of night,
to take the world and turn it upside down,
when it should be round?

It seems I made it just in time
to use my reason and my rhyme
to save us from the evils of your mind.

I will cast the spell, be sure I cast it well.
I will light a fire, kindled with desire.
I'll fill you with fear so you'll know I'm here
and I won't be treated like a fool.
's no good you pretending, there'll be no happy ending.
I'm alive and darkness is my tool.

But when the night is over,
and daytime steals your cover,
the goodness of the morning sun
will wear away what you have done
and leave you cold.

I have no need for moonlight.
You're wrong to trust in sunlight.
For I exist, not just in storms,
but in life itself, in so many forms
to leave you cold.

I will leave you now, but you wont defeat me.
You had best beware when you come to meet me.
Love and truth will follow me,
an army of reality,
brought from every corner of the world.

You will never break the spell.
I summon all the fires of hell
and this is my advice for all it's worth:

Let us not begin
This fight we cannot win.
Be sure you're watching me.
Cause all through your life,
every day and every night
You should know that I'll be watching you!!
