​Something Short Of Paradise

This song is by Tim Curry and appears on the album Fearless (1979).

I'm giving up this restless life
My wayward friends
The bad advice they give
I'm settling down to keep you company

I'm starting over
One more time
A change of heart
I've crossed the line again
It took me all this time to see
That what we've got is
Something short of paradise
A little bit less than we might like
I know this ain't heaven
It's close enough for me
I know this ain't heaven
It's close as I'll ever be

It won't be easy
Changing style
The shape I'm in
It just might take awhile
But in the end
I know you're going to see
That what we've got is
Something short of paradise
A little bit less than we might like
I know this ain't heaven
It's close enough for me
I know this ain't heaven
It's close as I'll ever be
