    Lyrics

    Hey lady, you, lady, cursin' at your life
    You're a discontented mother and a rich inventive wife
    I've no doubt you dream about the things you'll never do
    But I wish someone had a talked to me like I wanna talk to you

    Ooh I've been to Georgia and California, oh, anywhere I could run
    Took the hand of a preacher man and we made love in the sun
    But I ran out of places and friendly faces because I had to be free
    I've been to paradise, but I've never been to me

    Please lady, please, lady, don't just walk away
    Cause I have this need to tell you why I'm all alone today
    I can see so much of me still living in your eyes
    Won't you share a part of a weary heart that has lived a million lies

    Oh I've been to Nice and the isle of Greece
    While I sipped champagne on a yacht
    I moved like Harlow in Monte Carlo and showed 'em what I've got
    I've been undressed by kings and I've seen some things
    That a woman ain't s'posed to see
    I've been to paradise, but I've never been to me

    Hey, you know what paradise is? It's a lie. A fantasy we create about
    People and places as we'd like them to be. But you know what truth is?
    It's that little baby you're holding, and it's that man you fought with
    This morning, the same one you're going to make love with tonight.
    That's truth, that's love

    Sometimes I've been to cryin' for unborn children
    That might have made me complete
    But I, I took the sweet life and never knew I'd be bitter from the sweet
    I spent my life exploring the subtle whoring that cost too much to be free
    Hey lady, I've been to paradise, but I've never been to me

    I've been to paradise, never been to me
    (I've been to Georgia and California, and anywhere I could run)
    I've been to paradise, never been to me
    (I've been to Nice and the isle of Greece
    While I sipped champagne on a yacht)
    I've been to paradise, never been to me
    (I've been to cryin' for unborn children)
