Storyhill: “Paradise Lost” (2007)

A familiar story to many of us with a few years behind us. Brings to mind a bumper sticker that says, “The Suburbs: where they tear out all the trees and name streets after them”

Lyrics:

Everybody wants a piece of paradise/A house up on the hill with a view of heaven/Now everyone’s here so close together/Paradise is lost and gone forever

Chorus: When we were young we used to walk out in those fields/And run forever in the backyard woods/Now the old trails disappear in neighborhoods/With streets after what’s gone for good

The hills above town used to be the best place/For starry eyed lovers and inspration/Now it’s all paved Every street’s a dead end/And empty summer houses stand all along them

(Chorus)

Now there’s no trespassing/There’s no going back again/I only hope you remember/The way it was, what we had back then

(Chorus)

Everybody wants a piece of paradise/A house up on the hill with a view of heaven
