Too Many Heartaches In Paradise

This song is by Pure Prairie League and appears on the album Firin' Up (1980).

(J.Wilson/D.Greer)

She was her daddy's girl with her momma's smile
A country boy's dream she was a loveless child
She had a restless heart for the city lights
She left her country days for the city nights

There's just too many heartaches in paradise
There's just too much to pay... too high a price
You can spend all your love and never think twice
There's just too many heartaches in paradise

She loved those daydreams... the sunsets
The endless wine... the French cigarettes
And then she fell in love with a rich man's life
He used her up like his merchandise

There's just too many heartaches in paradise
There's just too much to pay... too high a price
You can spend all your love and never think twice
There's just too many heartaches in paradise

Like a fallen star in the night
Another broken heart fades out of sight
She's goin' back home

There's just too many heartaches in paradise
There's just too much to pay... too high a price
You can spend all your love and never think twice
There's just too many heartaches
Too many heartaches
There's just too many heartaches
In paradise
