"Paradise"

July 5, 2013

 

I love to take long drives in the country. The endless open skies, vast forests and open fields in their seasons of change, abandoned houses or farm yards… I’ve often wondered about those abandoned houses and towns – Who lived there and who were they? Was it a large community of people, or a quaint group of families? What caused them to leave? I looked back on my own life – where I started, who I became and why, who I knew, who I chose to keep close or otherwise, where I stayed and why I left… I also remembered that it was Biblical (Mark 6:11, Matthew 10:14, Philippians 3:12, 14). Considering all of this, I wrote “Paradise”. What is your Paradise?

 

 

 

 


"Paradise"
Music and Lyrics by Rhonda Louise

 

Living in Paradise is what I wanted
Or so it seemed
Today I took a road back to my past
And what I believed

Footprints long covered by drifting soil
I know where I’ve been
Strolling past tombs of buried grudges
Helped me see within

Back in Paradise
Just to realize
It’s part of who I am
Back in Paradise
Looking through Your eyes

Roads of temptation traveled too often
Now I just ignore
Abandoned houses, memories I held
I’m closing every door

Back in Paradise 
Just to realize
It’s part of who I am
Back in Paradise
Looking through Your eyes

Knowing who I was
And who I had become
I shook the dust from my shoes
And left Paradise

Here in Paradise
Now I realize
This is who I am
Here in Paradise
Finding peace through Your eyes
I shook the dust from my shoes
And now I’m feeling renewed
To get here I had to go through
Paradise
