lyrics

Everybody wants a piece of paradise
a house upon the hill, with a view of heaven
now everyone's here, so close together
Paradise is lost, gone forever

When we were young we used to walk out in those fields
and run forever, in the backyard woods
but now the old trails disappear in neighborhoods
with streets named after, what's gone for good

The hills above town used to be the best place
for starry-eyed lovers and inspiration
but now it's all paved, every streets a dead end
and empty summer houses, stand all along them

When we were young we used to walk out in those fields
and run forever, in the backyard woods
but now the old trails disappear in neighborhoods
with streets named after, what's gone for good

Now there's no trespassing
now there's no going back again
I only hope you remember
the way it was, and what we had back then

When we were young we used to walk out in those fields
and run forever, in the backyard woods
but now the old trails disappear in neighborhoods
with streets named after, what's gone for good
gone for good
gone for good
what's gone for good
