Ten Seconds Of Paradise
Dave Binder


It was a hot Sunday night in the summertime
And I was feeling kind of bored
So I set on down to the local bar
To give a couple beers a pour

Well I sang a few songs with the local band
And it was then I caught your eye
Well you asked me to join you for a few more drinks
You know I thought I'd give it a try

Well I was sitting there with you
And your best friend too
It was then that the trouble began
I guess it had to do with the fact that you were a woman, and I was a man.

[Chorus]: You know ten seconds of paradise
Is worth ten hours of tears
You know that one moment of true romance
Is worth waiting for for twenty one years

I started talking to you about two times a week
It soon turned into two times a day
Well I haven't heard from you for an hour or two
Don't think that I can go on this way

But you can blame it all on that week in the fall
When we set out on that long country ride
'Cause we were lookin' at the leave and lookin' to please
But I think we might have looked a little too deep inside

[Chorus]

Maybe it's infatuation
But isn't that supposed to die
And the feelin' keeps on growing stronger
And I think I might have seen a trace my girl
I think I might have seen a trace my girl
I think I might have seen a trace of love in your eyes

It was a hot Sunday night in the summertime
And I was feeling kind of bored
So I set on down to the local bar
To give a couple beers a pour

But on that hot Sunday night
In the clear moonlight
Well Mr. Fate he got his way you see
'Cause now that ten seconds of paradise
Has really got a hold on me

[Chorus]
