Lyrics
Dave Peverett - Riff Bros. Music - ASCAP




Remember me, you were a friend of mine,
Restless and young, I'm the one you made love to for the first time.
Now look at you, what you been up to, since I saw you last?
Your hair's a mess, you're half-dressed, you're loaded and you're fadin' fast.

All the dreams, you had of wealth and fame,
You took to the city, what a shame, they're all shattered, now your heart's in pain.
Makin love for a livin', you've given up, all you've got's a heart of stone.
Makin' the most of a sad situation, Paradise Alley's your home.

Paradise Alley, what a way to be alone,
Paradise Alley, a thousand miles away from home, yeah.

Lookin' back, I still recall the time,
I wonder how in the world was it so easy to be so unkind.
Will you be sorry when you realize the story has to end this way?
Lost in the night, never quite getting used to all the games they play.

You wait in vain, and your heart's in pain,
And dreams are all you have to hold on to.
You're losin' touch and it hurts so much,
To think of all the love I had for you.

Paradise Alley, what a way to be alone,
Paradise Alley, a thousand miles away from home, yeah.

{Rod - Slide Solo}

Paradise Alley, what a way to be alone.
Paradise Alley, a thousand miles away from home.

Paradise Alley, what a place to call your home,
Paradise Alley, what a way to be alone, yeah.

{Rod - Solo to fade}
