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 mmm
Bein' close to you is almost heaven
But seein' you can do just so much
It hurts me so to know your heart's a treasure
And that my heart is forbidden to touch
So put your sweet lips close to my lips and tell me that's where they're gonna stay
Don't lead me halfway to paradise so near yet so far away
Oh oh oh so near yet so far away
Mmm mmm mmm so near yet so far away
