Paradise Once Nearly Was Mine

PARADISE ONCE NEARLY WAS MINE

Idealized and semi-autobiographic event that actually happened in the Winter of 1981-2.

Based on THIS NEARLY WAS MINE from SOUTH PACIFIC

One dream in my heart,
One love to be living for,
One love to be living for
This nearly was mine.

One girl for my dream
One partner in paradise
This promise of paradise
This nearly was mine.

Close to my heart she came
Only to fly away,
Only to fly as day flies from moonlight.

Now, now I’m alone,
Still dreaming of paradise,
Still saying that paradise
Once nearly was mine!
