    Lyrics

    I. PARADISE

    BOY:
    Well I remember every little thing
    As if it happened only yesterday
    Parking by the lake
    And there was not another car in sight
    And I 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 tight!
    C'mon! Holdtight!
    Though it's cold and lonely in the deep dark night
    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
    Ain't no doubt about it
    Baby got to go and shout it
    Ain't no doubt about it
    We were doubly blessed

    BOY:
    'Cause we were barely seventeen
    And we were barely dressed
    Baby don't ya hear my heart
    You got it drowning out the radio
    I've been waiting so long
    For you to come along and have some fun
    And I gotta let you know
    No you're never gonna regret it
    So open up your eyes I got a big surprise
    It'll feel all right
    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 tight!
    C'mon! Hold tight!

    Though it's cold and lonely in the deep dark night
    I can see paradise by the dashboard light
    Though its cold and lonely in the deep dark night
    In The deep dark night
    Paradise by the dashboard light
    You got to do what you can
    And let Mother Nature do the rest
    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 tonight
    We're gonna go all the way
    And tonight's the night...
    We're gonna go all the way tonight
    We're gonna go all the way
    And tonight's the night...

    RADIO BROADCAST
    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 windup, and there it is, a line shot up 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
    second; the ball is bobbled out in center, and here comes the
    throw, and what a throw! He's gonna slide in head first, here he
    comes, he's out! No, wait, safe-safe at second base, this kid
    really makes things happen out there. Batter steps up to the
    plate, here's the pitch-he's going, and what a jump he's got,
    he's trying for third, here's the throw, it's in the dirt-safe at
    third! Holy cow, stolen base! He's 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 the 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!

    II. LET ME SLEEP ON IT
    GIRL:
    Stop right there!
    I gotta know right now!
    Before we go any further!
    Do you love me?
    Will you love me forever?
    Do you need me?
    Will you never leave me?
    Will you make me so happy for the rest of my life?
    Will you take me away and will you make me your wife?
    Do you love me!?
    Will you love me forever!?
    Do you need me!?
    Will you never leave me!?
    Will you make me so happy for the rest of my life!?
    Will you take me away and will you make me your wife!?
    I gotta know right now
    Before we go any further
    Do you love me!?
    Will you love me forever!?

    BOY:
    Let me sleep on it
    Baby, baby let me sleep on it
    Let me sleep on it
    And I'll give you an answer in the morning
    Let me sleep on it
    Baby, baby let me sleep on it
    Let me sleep on it
    And I'll give you an answer in the morning
    Let me sleep on it
    Baby, baby let me sleep on it
    Let me sleep on it
    And I'll give you an answer in the morning
    GIRL:

    BOY:

    Baby, baby let me sleep on it
    Let me sleep on it
    And I'll give you an answer in the morning
    Let me sleep on it

    GIRL:
    Will you love me forever?

    BOY:
    Let me sleep on it

    GIRL:
    Will you love me forever!!!!

    III. PRAYING FOR THE END OF TIME
    I couldn't take it any longer
    Lord I was crazed
    And when the feeling came upon me
    Like a tidal wave
    I started swearing to my god and on my mother's grave
    That I would love you to the end of time
    I swore that 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 gotta spend another minute with you
    I don't think that I can really survive
    I'll never break my promise or forget my 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:
    It was long ago and it was far away
    And it was so much better that it is today

    GIRL:
    it never felt so good it never felt so right
    we were glowing like the metal on the edge of a knife
