Paradise is a song about a fairy-tale, or fantasy. In the beginning, she takes her lover for granted and eventually breaks up with him. She had a previous relationship that had scarred her heart and she felt too far gone to love, again. The sensation felt like falling into an abyss. Years later, she realizes that he truly was her knight in shining armor. The modern-day knight arrives back on the scene, handsome and rich, of course. She takes him by the hand; he sweeps her off her feet and they fly off to Paradise. You see them there with their feet in the sand, champagne on ice. And they lived happily ever after. The End. Roberta’s vocals ascend to beautiful heights in the chorus and will make you want to start packing your bags, now!
