Intro: 4 bars (key of G, Em)

I had a dream in water colors
The sky was a bluish white swirl
I was adrift on a quiet sea
Alone with a beautiful girl
On the third day a seabird appeared
A small island came into view
We waded ashore and we thanked the lord
But knew there would be no rescue

For the rest of our lives
We lived in paradise
For the rest of our lives
We lived in paradise


I saw my life in water colors
The sun was a yellow beach ball
We were alone but we didnít care
Content to know paradise called
We had a life few people dream of
It was perfect as it could be
In a lifetime few people find love
Like fate graced upon you and me

For the rest of our lives
We lived in paradise
For the rest of our lives
We lived in paradise


I awoke and went and proposed
We found a place of our own
We painted a picturesque life
On an island we call home

Interlude: 8 bars

For the rest of our lives
We lived in paradise
For the rest of our lives
We lived in paradise

For the rest of our lives
We lived in paradise
For the rest of our lives
We lived in paradise
