Lost In Paradise lyrics

THE PALISADES
(Words & Music by Gary Schutt)


A secret desire felt by you and me
Candle lights take up the sky
The purple majestic mountains walk the sea
The dream is shared by you and I

Tonight we’ll be making love
See you on the Palisades
See you on the Palisades

We watch the headlights pass on the distant shore
In total seclusion from the world
The city lights reflection on the bay
It sparkles in your eyes once more

Tonight we’ll be making love
See you on the Palisades
See you on the Palisades

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
SAY GOODBYE
(Words & Music by Gary Schutt)


I don’t like you playing with my head
I don’t believe in the lies you said
Nice try but it didn’t work
It takes more to make me hurt

You think it’s funny how I play your game
Well listen honey, I’m not yours to obey

Say goodbye
Pray you’ll never see me again
No more lies
You will get it in the end

I got a feeling of de ja vu
This evil inside me it you
I want a love that’s real someday
Once you are out of my way

How many times have I trusted you
No I’m not blind to all the things that you do

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
DIRTY MIND
(Words & Music by Gary Schutt)


Well it’s Friday night and I know it’s late
I’m just going out to clear my head
Gotta find me a woman with a dirty mind
‘Cause you really suck in bed

I want a woman with a sense of adventure
A woman with a sexual skill
One with no fear of time or place
So let’s do it on the windowsill

Imagination
Spontaneity
Animal instinct
You and me

Nothing like a girl with a dirty mind
Filthy in mentality all the time
You and me together we could kill some time
With our dirty minds

Now you don’t get me excited
I’m surprised you even do it for free
I don’t see why making love to you
Is like winning the lottery

I want a woman who does it contorted
Who doesn’t know the meaning of ‘’no’’
She’s got no mental hygiene
But she’s clean where it all counts, ya know?

Does your mind live in the gutter
Or does it just vacation there
Do you know a place where we could go
To start this dirty love affair

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
IMPERFECT
(Words & Music by Gary Schutt)


Out of sight, out of mind
However not this time
The memory lingers

Your eyes never open up
When you speak to me you never have to say a word

Your heart remains boarded up
How can you let someone in if you won’t let yourself out

I’ve tried to forget you
But I thought I’d regret you

Love is an imperfect emotion
If what you feel doesn’t rival mine
Call it a game, call it superstition
Keep in mind our love is in effect

When you sleep, do you sleep alone
Do you have to think twice everytime you call his name
Too much to take
When you know the heart breaks a little too easily

I’ve tried not to hate you
I’ve tried not to degrade you

Love is an imperfect emotion
If what you feel doesn’t rival mine
Call it a game, call it superstition
Keep in mind our love is an imperfect emotion

You know it’s always the same that with love must come pain
If you weren’t so afraid it wouldn’t have to be this way
And you know that it’s true

Time after time I’ve tried to convince myself
I’m better off without you
God knows I’ve tried to forget you
I’ve tried so hard to neglect you


+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
STRANGER TO YOUR HEART
(Words & Music by Gary Schutt)


Can’t fall asleep ‘cause the burning inside
Is calling out your name
I unwillingly picture in my mind
Someone else in my place

I’m the same guy
I treated you right.
I made love to you
You used to wait for me, now you’re giving it up
What am I to do
I’d die for you

I’m a stranger
Stranger to your heart
Yeah, I’m a stranger
Stranger to your heart

Just when you think it was beautiful
It falls apart silently
Wasn’t it special
Wasn’t it for real
Or did you lie to me

When we touched, oh, it felt so right
I made love to you
I waited faithfully, but you’re giving it up
What am I to do
I’d die for you

How many times can I live like this
How much hurt can I contain
How many times must I drain my eyes
Why does it always turn out the same


+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
LOST IN PARADISE
(Words & Music by Gary Schutt)


It’s always been the same
A million times before
I’ve been through hell and back again
It’s not hard to see
That you’re feeling it too
There’s got to be a better way

Someday, if you would come my way, I’d say…

Let’s get lost in paradise
Take my hand, it will be alright
Wipe the tears that fill your eyes
We’ll get lost in paradise

Now you know I’d never hurt you
And I’ll always be there
In the night I’ll find the light of day
Stay close beside me
Keep your heart in mine
True love will never die

Someday, if you would only stay, I’d say…

Let’s get lost in paradise
Take my hand, it will be alright
Wipe the tears that fill your eyes
I’ll never say goodbye
Let’s get lost in paradise
See the love that’s in my eyes
Making love till the sunrise
We’ll get lost in paradise

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
BELIEVE
(Words & Music by Gary Schutt)

I lay in darkness still
The stars creep by my windowsill
I try to see through swollen eyes
Your absence lingers by my side
I face the night alone
I welcome the thought of he morning dawn
To breathe the dew in the autumn air
To roll on my side in hopes you’d be there

Someday I’ll gather the faith and the love and the trust
If only you’d believe that we have all he strength to endure what we must
Believe

You’d call just to hear my voice
We’d like to be together but we have no choice
I try to make it through the day
Missing you dear, I think I hear myself say that...

Someday I’ll gather the faith and the love and the trust
If only you’d believe that we have all the strength to endure what we must
Believe

If I could read your mind, maybe my fears would subside
So put your doubts at ease
In the meantime you’ve just got to believe in me

WITH A STRANGER
(Words & Music by Gary Schutt)


Tell me a secret or two tonight
Tell me two wrongs make it right
So what’s right?
Tell me that you don’t think it’s over
Somewhere, deep inside yourself
Tucked away are feelings for someone else
And what else?
Somewhere is where you’ll never find me
Come find me

I sit here all alone pretending you’re not home
Seems like we never see eye to eye at all

Another lonely night
Your place by my side
Was I walking with a stranger
Awake and I stare at the sky
Walking the line
Was I talking with a stranger

Sometimes we never talk at all
Every time it hurts a little more
And what for?
All the time the distance becomes greater
As I hate her

Surrounded in irony
Your face is all I see
Even when you’re here with me I’m still alone

Looking out from the balcony
I spy through your hotel window
Blinded now and it’s plain to see
You don’t mind at all


+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
FIRST LOVE
(Words & Music by Gary Schutt)


Waiting for someone to fill my empty heart
Lost in delusion of shadows in the dark
Someone has broken the chains that locked me in
Someone has stolen my heart they tried to win

Now I surrender to your lonely eyes
Now I fear the day when we say goodbye
So tired of head games and the way I was treated
Two hearts in loves fusion
It’s you I always needed

I sense darkness is slowly descending
I can’t help it
You leave me disbelieving

First loves never fade
She keeps on haunting me
First loves are custom made
I’ll remember only my first love

I tried for so long to find a girl like you
Walking in circles
Nothing I could do
No one hurt me like the way you did
No one could capture the thoughts inside my head

Time seemed endless when we were holding on
Life seems hopeless now that you’re gone

First loves never die
My love will always be
First loves of you and I
All but memories
First loves never fade
She keeps on haunting me
First loves are custom made
I’ll remember only my first love


++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
HOT TEASER
(Words & Music by Gary Schutt)


I got my eye on you tonight
So baby please give me a try
I’ll show you love you never had
The kind that keeps you satisfied

But she’s not interested in love
She likes the heat of the night
So give me all that you’ve got
Take me home with you tonight

She’s a hot teaser
Little pleaser
She knows that loves a game for fools

You always know just what I need
But sometimes it’s not enough
You gotta reach deep down inside
And give me some of that loving stuff
Oh yeah


++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
LINE OF FIRE
(Words & Music by Gary Schutt)


It’s a sad, sad story.
I fear the end is near
I’ve been picked from among millions
But to me the logic isn’t clear
I sailed across the ocean to meet the men in red
The friends I left behind, the voices in my head

I can see a light shining on a distant land
It’s calling out to me to take my hand
If you can see it too, then the sky will turn blue
‘Cause I am going with you

When you’re standing in a line of fire
Standing in a line of fire
Standing in a line of fire
Standing in a line of fire

A vicious angry battlefield
The enemy is over the hill
This feeling that’s inside me has become an urge to kill
It’s a sad, sad story
I fear the men in red
I fear my friends have died and the voices that I dread

An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth
And a soul can never be fixed
But you don’t know what it’s like
To be dead and not be missed


+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
WHY DO YOU TREAT ME THIS WAY
(Words & Music by Gary Schutt)


Every one knows that I’m kissing your feet
Just to keep you around
Every one sees the cloud that you’re on
And that I’m still on the ground
Every one hears all he things about us
They say I should stay away
Why do you treat me this way

Every one knows what a spell love can cast
And the damage therein
Every one knows that it’s hard to fall out
Once you’ve fallen far in
Baby it’s hard when I have to realize
It hurts me day after day
Why do you treat me this way

I’ve been through Hell
I’ve seen it all
I’ve tried to keep my head from hitting the wall
It’s gotta stop now baby, just letting you know
You’ll realize what you’ve lost once you let me go

It’s all the same when it comes down to girls
It’s just one big head game
They’re all alike because of some guy
Who used to treat them the same
So what’s the deal with your bad attitude
Tell me, what do you gain
Why do you treat me this way
What do you gain
