One step that takes you closer to heaven
One road that stretches out ahead
One word that drives you to the point of decision
One wave that closes on a drowning man
One man who never knew the meaning of resistance
So now the turning tide will take another prayer to paradise
Tonight, a mist is rolling with the river

Tonight, the rain is coming down
Tonight, you reach out to the point of decision
One wave that closes on a drowning man
A man who never knew the meaning of resistance
And now the turning tide will take another prayer

And where it falls, nobody knows
Oh, paradise, oh paradise, oh paradise, oh paradise
One step that takes you closer to heaven
This wave that closes on a drowning man
A man who never knew the meaning of forever
So now the turning tide will take another prayer

And where it falls, nobody goes
To paradise, oh paradise, oh paradise, one prayer
To paradise, one prayer to paradise, oh paradise, oh paradise
