"Paradise" - written and performed by Jess Payne. One of my first songs and probably one of my favorites. About growing up in a town everyone may think is "paradise," but "isn't always nice" for someone raised there.

Lyrics:

Waves crashing in the background of our lives,
with a painting of a sunset in our eyes.
There's no doubt this attachment will end in a bitter surprise, but we'll try to make it through the night.

Paradise isn't always nice though it seems right, you're only seeing from the outside.
Don't hide behind the lie, that lie will never get you through your life.
Paradise.

Feel the sand underneath my feet, never knowing how it makes some feel complete.
Time and time I try to understand the reason why people continue to call this their cloud nine.

Paradise isn't always nice though it seems right, you're only seeing from the outside.
Don't hide behind the lie, that lie will never get you through your life.
Paradise.

As your heart beats faster and faster, trying to find what it takes to succeed, your mind numbs and suddenly you can't breathe.
I guess there always comes a time where we must make up our minds, take the fork in the road and just unwind.

Paradise isn't always nice though it seems right, you're only seeing from the outside.
Don't hide behind the lie, that lie will never get you through your life.
Paradise.

Paradise, isn't what it seems like when you're standing in the middle on the inside.
Paradise, isn't always nice.
