​Almost Paradise

This song is by Tom Snow and appears on the musical soundtrack Footloose - Original Broadway Cast Recording (2009).

Ren
I thought that dreams belonged to other men
'Cause each time I got close, they'd fall apart again

Ariel
I feared my heart would beat in secrecy

Ren and Ariel
I faced the nights alone
Oh, how could I have known
That all my life I only needed you?

Whoa, almost paradise
We're knocking on heaven's door
Almost paradise
How could we ask for more?
I swear that I can see forever in your eyes
Paradise

Ariel
I thought that perfect love was hard to find
I'd almost given up
You must've read my mind

Ren
And all those dreams I saved for a rainy day

Ren and Ariel
They're finally coming true
I'll share them all with you
'Cause now we hold the future in our hands

Whoa, almost paradise
We're knocking on heaven's door
Almost paradise
How could we ask for more?
I swear that I can see forever in your eyes
Paradise

Ren
And in your arms salvation's not so far away

Ariel
It's getting closer

Ren and Ariel
Closer every day

Almost paradise
We're knocking on heaven's door
Almost paradise
How could we ask for more?
I swear that I can see forever in your eyes
Paradise
Paradise
Paradise
