Inside A Fool’s Paradise

by Tina Isaacs

(Lyrics for Antero)



He’s just a boy, lost to the world

With a heart, empty with no soul

Drifting aimlessly with the wind

Wonderin’ how, wonderin’ where to begin

 

Like a candle brightening an empty room

No destiny, no purpose in mind

(And he’s) Searching for a beacon along the way

To lead and guide him through life’s pain

 

Bridge

And maybe, just maybe, he’ll make it out

Perhaps (one day) when he’s had enough

 

Chorus

Maybe one day he’ll turn to the next page

The light will shine the way

Leave it all behind and he will stay away

Wishing that someone would care

 

– guitar solo –

 

He makes a wish, hope against hope

For that someone who’ll light his way

For some meaning, reason to go on

He’s been long lost, inside a fool’s paradise

 

Something tells him he’s not alone

Where there’s a will, there’s a way

There’s no choice, maybe no way out

But he must toil to the end

 

Bridge

Wondering’ if there’s someone who cares

 

Chorus

He makes a wish, hope against hope

For that someone who’ll light his way

For some meaning, reason to go on

He’s been long lost, inside a fool’s paradise

– Repeat Chorus –
