The Alan Parsons Project:To One In Paradise Lyrics
If I could see the sky above And my mind could be set free As wild white horses reached the shore I'd stand alone and oversee And if the bush before me burns Should I turn my eyes away And still the voices I can hear As clear to me as light of day I believed in my dreams Nothing could change my mind Now I know what they mean How could I be so blind Cold sands of time Winds that blow as cold as ice Sounds that come in the night Shall hide what is left of me Come from Paradise I've been through times when no one cared Words that were mine I've seen clouds in empty skies When one kind word meant more to me Shall last as a memory Than all the love in Paradise I believed in my dreams Nothing could change my mind Till I found what they mean Nothing can save me now Edit Lyrics Edit Wiki Add Video.

To One in Paradise Lyrics
General Comment I think this is an awesome song. I can't see why there aren't more comments on this and all the other Alan Parsons Project Songs. Alone, it's just ok - after the Ligetti tone clusters in the song before it basically think of an orchestra rioting , it IS paradise. That was done purposely. In context, the song is just a dream after your nightmare. What would it be like to have all the answers for once in life? To never care if you were liked or hated.
The first stanza then dives into beautiful, possibly biblical imagery. Like Adam and Eve, the speaker feels a false sense of security, which will eventually lead to his eternal torture. It could be a reference to a part of the sea that reaches far inland in keeping with the use of water imagery that is used throughout the poem. In the third stanza, the speaker becomes more frantic. The use of exclamation points and dashes adds to the emotion. The stanza is split by two lines that are surrounded by parenthesis. The two lines paint the image of the sea which represents the speaker desperately clinging to the shore which represents paradise.
An Analysis of “To One in Paradise”
The fourth and final stanza does not serve as a resolution — it is a continuation. The work dismally suggests that nothing beautiful, pure and good will ever last, and that, consequently, it is a grave mistake to ever assume that one has a firm grasp on love and happiness.
