Halfway To Paradise - Billy Fury

Halfway To Paradise

Billy Fury

(Carole King - Gerry Goffin, Decca, 1961)

I want to be your lover, but your friend is all I stay
I'm only halfway to paradise, so near yet so far away
I long for your lips to kiss my lips
But just when I think they may
You leave me halfway to paradise, so near yet so far away
Mmm, being close to you is almost heaven (heaven)
But seing you can do just so much
It hurts me so to know your heart's a treasure (treasure)
And that my heart is forbidden to touch
So, put your sweet lips close to my lips
And tell me that's where they're gonna stay
Don't leave me halfway to paradise, so near yet so far away
Oh-oh-oh, so near yet so far away
Mm-mm-mm, so near yet so far away
