Elvis Presley So Close, Yet So Far (From Paradise) Lyrics

So close, yet so far from paradise
I hold you in my arms in paradise
Is mine, then you slip away
Like a child at play, and here am I

So close, yet so far from paradise
When you are close to me, it's paradise
We kiss, oh, my love, paradise
Is mine, then suddenly you're gone from me
Like a floating star I see and here am I

So close, yet so far from paradise
I reach out for you, but each time I do
I always find you gone
I know love is new; I'll take care of you
In my arms is where you belong

Just a step away are we from paradise
Take my hand--come away to paradise
My love, I want you close to me
I need you desperately; oh, here am I

Waiting for you
Here am I
Praying for you
Here am I, so close, yet so far from paradise
