Dark Paradise (Final and Demo Versions)

Recommended Posts

All my friends tell me I should move on
I'm lying in the ocean, singing your song

Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah

That's how you sang it


Loving you forever can't be wrong
Even though you're not here, won't move on

Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah

That's how we played it

And there's no remedy for memory
Your face is like a melody
It won't leave my head
Your soul is haunting me and telling me
That everything is fine
But I wish I was dead
(Dead like you)

Everytime I close my eyes
It's like a dark paradise
No one compares to you
I'm scared that you won't be waiting on the other side
(x2)

All my friends ask me why I stay strong
Tell 'em when you find true love it lives on

Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah
That's why I stay here

And there's no remedy for memory
Your face is like a melody
It won't leave my head
Your soul is hunting me and telling me
That everything is fine
But I wish I was dead
(Dead like you)

Everytime I close my eyes
It's like a dark paradise
No one compares to you
I'm scared that you won't be waiting on the other side

Everytime I close my eyes
It's like a dark paradise
No one compares to you
But there's no you except in my dreams tonight

I don't wanna wake up from this tonight (x2)

There's no relief, I see you in my sleep
And everybody's rushing me
But I can feel you touching me
There's no release, I feel you in my dreams
Telling me I'm fine

Everytime I close my eyes
It's like a dark paradise
No one compares to you
I'm scared that you won't be waiting on the other side

Everytime I close my eyes
It's like a dark paradise
No one compares to you
But there's no you except in my dreams tonight

I don't wanna wake up from this tonight (x2)



ALTERNATE DEMO LYRICS:

I got the ice, you got the fire
I got the stuff to take you higher
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah
That’s how you played it

I got the brains, you got the money
This is race, let’s go fast, honey
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah
That’s how you played it

Come on, pretty baby, I’ll be taking you down
They say you got crazy like all over town

Every time I close my eyes
It’s like a dark paradise
No one compares to you
I’m scared that you won’t be waiting on the other side

Every time I close my eyes
It’s like a dark paradise
No one compares to you
But there’s no you except in my dreams tonight

I got the brains, you got the money
This is race, let’s go fast, honey
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah
That’s how you played it

Come on, pretty baby, I’ll be taking you down
They say you got crazy like all over town

Every time I close my eyes
It’s like a dark paradise
No one compares to you
I’m scared that you won’t be waiting on the other side

Every time I close my eyes
It’s like a dark paradise
No one compares to you
But there’s no you except in my dreams tonight

I don’t wanna wake up from this tonight (x2)

I like the first demo (or at least the first one to leak) so much more than the album version. And the one for which we have but a clip of her performing live is even more stunning.

Lyrics ? Can't hear a thing.

 

Everybody told me I was falling in love,

I said "You would fall too if you knew what I was dreaming of,"

Everybody told me I was stupid because you were bad, you were wrong,

And I knew it.

 

The rest are the same as the final Dark Paradise.

This is my favorite version. I wish someone had a better recording of this performance, or that she sung this version more. Ugh.

Yesterday this song (album version) came on while I was in the car, and it really hit me how devastating the lyrics are. I guess I've been desensitized to it by listening to it between other tracks from BTD but for some reason I really listened and got choked up. It really captures the feelings you get after a loved one passes away. The bridge, the hook...the feeling of wishing so much you could see and touch someone but knowing the reality, that they're gone and not coming back. Throughout the lyrics she floats the idea of killing herself and it makes those last two lines so much more powerful. I've always wondered if she really lost a lover and this is inspired by those feelings.

I always preferred the demo version of the song. I think the lyrics are better, but also I think they sound weird at some places. That is what I like.
