Everything I'm Not (Awake In Paradise)

EVERYTHING I'M NOT - Written by Carroll


Welcome to tomorrow land
You better open up your eyes
Here is where I make my stand
Awake in paradise 

Our love is growing old 
That's what you said, I see
You're anxious to move on again
Just to get away from me

So get away from me

So tell me who he is
Is there fire in his eyes?
He's everything I'm not, I know
That comes as no surprise
So tell me when you fell in love
With this other guy
He's everything I'm not, I know
I guess this is goodbye
Awake in paradise

No gypsy queen could ever
Break this spell of love
Ice as thick as skin is deep
No clouds up above 

Our love is yesterdays news 
We popped all of our balloons 
I'm anxious for the history
To go by pretty soon 

I hope it passes me by

So tell me who he is
Is there fire in his eyes?
He's everything I'm not, I know
That comes as no surprise
So tell me when you fell in love
With this other guy
He's everything I'm not, I know
I guess this is goodbye
Awake in paradise

No, I won't agree to this
I'm down to my last kiss
Better stock up on the mints 
And leave me before I go super crazy
On you
No, I won't turn my back away
There's so much more I want to say
To you
We're through 
We're done
That's it
I'm all out of energy now

So tell me who he is
Is there fire in his eyes
He's everything I'm not, I know
That comes as no surprise

Damn

So tell me who he is
Is there fire in his eyes?
He's everything I'm not, I know
That comes as no surprise
So tell me when you fell in love
With this other guy
He's everything I'm not, I know
I guess this is goodbye
Awake in paradise

Awake in paradise

So tell me who he is
