Is This the Way to Paradise

This song is by Michael Sembello and appears on the album Without Walls (1986).

I feel I'm ready to go
I feel I'm ready to know
Like a magnet pulling me so strong
Hear the words in the wordless song
I don't know
One side fire, one side ice
On the borderlines of paradise

I know it's out there, I climb and I fall
And the voices of all who are there call

Take a turn to the left or to the right
Is this the way to paradise?
Should I lock my heart up for the night?
Is this the way to paradise?
Poor souls caught frozen in the ice
Is this the way to paradise?
Is this the way to paradise?

In a temple in a distant land
There's a white light shining from a man
With the power to teach me how to fly
Show me all the reasons why
I don't know
On an island far beneath the sea
Some day the answer waits for me

I know it's out there, I know how I've tried
And the ghosts of the ones who have failed cry

Take a turn to the left or to the right
Is this the way to paradise?
Should I lock my heart up for the night?
Is this the way to paradise?
Poor souls caught frozen in the ice
Is this the way to paradise?
Is this the way to paradise?

Right from the start it was locked inside my heart
The secret is clear and the answer is near
We are born with the tears and we die with the fear
Just one more page in my story, your story, the story

Is this the way to paradise?
Is this the way to paradise?
Is this the way to paradise?
Is this the way to paradise?
Is this the way to paradise?
Is this the way to paradise?
