Halfway to Paradise - Tony Orlando/Billy Fury/Bobby Vinton/Sandy Posey/Jimmy Frey/Nick Lowe/The Vibrators

  
     
Halfway to Paradise
I want to be your lover
But your friend is all I've stayed
I'm only halfway to paradise
So near, yet, so far away

I long for your lips, to kiss my lips
But just when I think they may
You lead me halfway to paradise
So near, yet, so far away

Bein' close to you is almost heaven (heaven)
But seein' you can do just so much
It hurts me so to know your heart's a treasure (treasure)
And that my heart is forbidden to touch, so

Put your sweet lips close to my lips
And tell me that's where they're gonna stay
Don't lead me halfway to paradise
Mmm, so near, yet, so far away
Oh, uh, oh, so near, yet, so far away

(Fade)

Yeah, yeah, so near, yet, so far away
