lyrics

VERSE 1:
We are all in Paradise, so do not weep
We are all in Paradise, so do not weep
If we ever change our minds
We would all wake up to find
We are all in Paradise, so do not weep

VERSE 2:
Am I worthy to be served as you serve me
Am I worthy to be served as you serve me
My beloved, my dear one
Can you see the things I’ve done
Am I worthy to be served as you serve me

VERSE 3:
Birds of God, you joyful birds forgive me too
Birds of God, you joyful birds forgive me too
For before you I have sinned
It was always my intent
Birds of God, you joyful birds forgive me too

VERSE 4:
How have I deserved your love, heart of my heart?
How have I deserved your love, heart of my heart?
For I did not recognize
That you love one such as I
How have I deserved your love, heart of my heart

OUTRO
What are months? What are years?
What are days? Can’t one suffice
Do not quarrel. Do not boast
Do not fight. Take no offense
