      About "Some Kind Of Paradise"

      Lyrics for Kevin Welch - "Some Kind Of Paradise"

      His daddy said when he was a baby
      He was impossible to hold
      He'd fuss and fight and then he'd giggle all night
      Terrify the whole household

      But he'd listen to his bedtime stories
      He believed what he was told
      About gypsy camps, saddle tramps
      And rainbow gold

      He had about a million questions
      Liked to drove everybody wild
      He'd ask them stuff that was just too tough
      They all told him, "hush up child"

      So it came as no surprise
      When he left his home so young
      Looking for some kind of paradise
      I don't know what else he could have done

      He was a scholar
      Though he never really went to school
      He stood amazed at the world's ways
      And he followed the golden rule

      He knew a little bit about everything
      He could pretty much guess the rest
      And he always seemed to know what you mean
      If you took him in your confidence

      Now most people run around in circles
      But he ran a real straight line
      The only thing wrong was that before too long
      He left everyone who loved him behind

      So it came as no surprise
      When he left his home so young
      Looking for some kind of paradise
      Looking for something that he hadn't already done

      Well he got to be hard to keep track of
      Everybody was a little confused
      And then one time the old grapevine
      Whispered the strangest news

      Now maybe he didn't mean to do it
      I understand it if you've got your doubts
      But I got a good idea that the coast was clear
      And he figured he'd just bust on out

      Now friends I'm not saying that it was a good thing
      I'm not saying that it makes much sense
      I just know that he was the kind to cross every line
      Jump every single last fence

      So it comes as no surprise
      That he left his home so young
      Still looking for some kind of paradise
      The fool thought he had to go all the way to kingdom come

      The only thing that I really wonder about now
      Keeps running across my mind
      If he ever caught his breath between his birth and death

      If he ever caught his breath between birth and death
      I swear I don't know where he ever found the time

      Some kind of paradise
