Lyrics Halfway to Paradise

I want to be your lover
But your friend is all I've stayed
I'm only halfway to paradise
So near yet so far away
I long for your lips to kiss my lips
But just when
I think they may
You lead me halfway to paradise
So near yet so far away
Bein' close to you is almost heaven
But seein' you can do oh, so much
It hurts me so to know your heart's a treasure
And that my heart is forbidden to touch
Put your sweet lips next to my lips
Tell me that's where they'll stay
I'm only halfway to paradise
So near yet so far away
So near yet so far away
So near yet so far away
