​Trouble in Paradise

This song is by The Like and appears on the album Release Me (2010).

I see trouble in paradise, but that's just my eyes;
You did your time... let it go - Ruby, don't cry!

Be careful - your one life to live is still slipping, and it's almost too gone;
I need you to keep yourself alive and kicking, so I hope that I'm wrong...
When I see the signs of my worst fears dawning on and on,
I hope I've lost my touch to see your heart...

'Cause I see trouble in paradise, but that's just my eyes;
You did your time... let it go - Ruby, don't cry!
I see trouble in paradise, but that's just my eyes;
You've lost your glow... let me know - Ruby, don't lie!

You promised you'd never give in to your sickness - Did you mean it at all?
Just promise you'll let me back in when you need it - Baby, give me a shot...
Pupils wide like blurry pools, your lips are cracked and dry;
Just tell me that my instincts aren't all right...

'Cause I see trouble in paradise, but that's just my eyes;
You did your time... let it go - Ruby, don't cry!
I see trouble in paradise, but that's just my eyes;
You've lost your glow... let me know - Ruby, don't lie!

Wait, growing up is a sad affair;
You don't get a chance to prepare till it's too late, and you've been broken...
Hey, I hear the grave is a lonely place;
Just remember the hearts that break, as you keep sinking lower, lower...
Don't just let go!

I see trouble in paradise, but that's just my eyes;
You did your time... let it go - Ruby, don't cry!
I see trouble in paradise, tell me that it's just my eyes;
You've lost your glow... Let it go - Ruby, don't cry!
Let me know Ruby, don't lie!
Let it go - Ruby, don't die!
