Paradise Street by Terry Naylor published on 2012/03/31 20:25:20 +0000 Paradise Street is where the bus terminal used to be in Liverpool. It's still there now, but it's been Liverpool One-ised and lacks the slightly seedy character it once had that made it a scary place to get the last bus home from. When I wrote this song, I was going for a Carole King Tapestry era feel, (top deck vs on the roof). It's in the key it arrived in, I tried lowering it to make it easier to sing, but it just didn't sound the same. Paradise Street is also the home of Radio Merseyside, How about some airplay? I'd look for ways to be amazed relentlessly Feel that sense of wonder in understanding what might be When I'm moving to a different beat Down to the bus shelter where we used to meet I'm on Paradise Street We'd get on board the forty-four or thirty-nine And ride around the city till the sun went down And from the top deck we could see All the people passing by down beneath us on Paradise Street Now I don't care if we go nowhere I'll just come along for the ride It ain't the destination when I'm travelling by your side When the taste of love and life is so sweet You get that feeling that can never be beat You're on Paradise Street.
