Paradise Is

Five bands of blue. Each one is perfect. Perfect for me the artist, that is. Perfect accompanied by thin strips of cadmium red and orange. But not perfect when I use alizarin. Where to now, wise man? The green worked with the alizarin. When you had the green. But the blue, especially with the yellows and ochres, well that's paradise.

Hey do you know what paradise is?

It's alive, a fantasy recreated by people and places as we'd like them to be. But do you know what truth is? It's that little boy you're holding and it's that man you fought with this morning, the same one you're going to make love with tonight. That's truth. That's love.

And I love the radio. It's where I go to my lovely when the alizarin doesn't work:

Well there's a small boat made of china
It's going nowhere on a mantlepiece
And if your number is 884 DFL congratulations
If this is your car call in for your one hundred dollars
It's The Better Music Mix
Show the world and all its people
All the wonders love can bring
We'll have another cash total in our next hour
And if you'd like to call from outside the metro area
Dieters are advised to avoid red, orange and yellow plates
They can boost your appetite
Rain throughout the afternoon with southerly winds
Temperatures 44 45 degrees
For a more detailed check call the weather line
Ay ay ay ay
Ay ay ay ay
Should've known better
To lie to one as beautiful as you
George Formby was an apprentice jockey
Stand by the telephones if you'd like to play the game
Lower Piney Road delayed as usual
When you hear that song be the first guy or first girl to get through
And as usual babe I'm the last to know
Because he's been involved in beef matters ever since
I'm a little bit dizzy
I'm a little bit scared
I guess I never felt this much aware
They're jusified and the're ancient and they has a little help from Tammy Wynette
What country invaded the Falkland Islands?
Well, they were involved, I'll give it to you
Lots of congestion in Christchurch area
He has told America that there is nothing wrong with America that cannot be cured by what is right with America
Hey now, hey now
Don't dream it's over
Old golfers never die
They just lose their balls
They were closer now Fernando
And they will play the showcase gig at Tower Records
The delicious and delightful I-knew-her-before-whe-was-a-virgin Doris Day, with Secret Love
Superstars of the seventies
It's a livin' thing
It's a givin' thing
Superstars of the eighties
We're jammin'
Superstars of the nineties
It's just another day in paradise
The music's great, song after song, six o'clock rock
Well done to her, she was caller ten with the Phrase That Pays
So why shop til you drop?
Shop at home - send for a catalogue now
Every time I hear this song
Mississippi roll along
And why would you be calling the winning line today?
I'll tell you why
Because today is Free Video Wednesday
Ok, it is a dreadful story Tom and thanks for telling it to us
Cypress Avenue moderately heavy, it is moving nicely

Paul Dorrell says:

If that intuitive song sings true to you, then no one else's opinion - parents, lovers, critics - should matter.
