Electric Light Orchestra Moment In Paradise Lyrics

Last updated: 10/23/2007 11:00:00 AM

Oh, yeah

She never cried, she only tried
To fly beyond her dreams
No walls around her mind

Deep inside she'd try to hide
That she was way beyond her means
No borders and no lines

She said that it's your duty to save your soul
To save it for someone
Moment in paradise
Just a moment in paradise
Oh, yeah

Moment in paradise
Just a moment in paradise
Oh, yeah

She floated out upon the wind
That blew my thoughts into the night
She knew the things she had to know

She drifted high above my mind
Blew my brains out, did alright
I think she knew it all along

She said that it's your duty to save your soul
To save it for someone
Moment in paradise
Just a moment in paradise
Oh, yeah

Moment in paradise
Just a moment in paradise
Oh, yeah
Oh, yeah, oh, yeah, oh, yeah

She said that it's your duty to save your soul
To save it for someone
Moment in paradise
Just a moment in paradise
Oh, yeah

Moment in paradise
Moment in paradise
Moment in paradise
Moment in paradise
Oh, yeah
Moment in paradise
Moment in paradise
Just a moment in paradise

fantastic neo-beatles song | Reviewer: randall | 10/21/2007

jeff lynne's best song on zoom. shockingly outstanding. should be on every radio station every week. but of course, people don't trust their ears anymore. -pine- sigh- :) check out also "a long time gone" and "lonesome lullaby". but on this song check out that incredible slide solo which i also saw performed in concert without a slide but actually bent with a set of "8's" on the axe by marc mann in his band. great close mic'ed held solo piano bass notes underneath the whole song that jeff once showed me at the mixing board. that great naturally reverbed piano hook (jeff's piano distant mic'ed in his biggest wood room) -amazing orchestration -cheers jeff! haunting...



Good Song and Album | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/12/2004

Zoom was a very good album. More like Armchair Theatre than any other ELO stuff and that's a good thing, especially the 80's ELO Stuff. Best song on Zoom in my opinion.
