You always look me in the eye
You never say the same thing twice
Believe me when I tell you it’s gotta get better

Now it has come to this
Playing games just like kids
We’re running through the yard to save our life tonight

‘Cause we’re a long way from home on some rocky shore
Oh my
I think it’s worth a try
Oh my
Gonna live in paradise

We all know the way
But that first step feels out of place
Call me when you have some time to talk awhile

Don’t you look that way
We don’t move we stay the same

We’ll let the stars guide our way tonight
Oh my
I think this is worth a try
Oh my
We might just get it right
Oh my
Gonna live in paradise

There’s no need to hide
We bought the ticket let’s take the ride

Pick a road we’ll see where it goes
Oh my
I think this is worth a try
Oh my
We might just get it right
This time
Gonna live in paradise
