Electric Light Orchestra - Moment In Paradise Lyrics




Oh, yeah

She never cried, she only tried
To fly beyond her dreams
No walls around her mind

Deep inside she'd try to hide
That she was way beyond her means
No borders and no lines

She said that it's your duty to save your soul
To save it for someone
Moment in paradise
Just a moment in paradise
Oh, yeah

Moment in paradise
Just a moment in paradise
Oh, yeah

She floated out upon the wind
That blew my thoughts into the night
She knew the things she had to know

She drifted high above my mind
Blew my brains out, did alright
I think she knew it all along

She said that it's your duty to save your soul
To save it for someone
Moment in paradise
Just a moment in paradise
Oh, yeah

Moment in paradise
Just a moment in paradise
Oh, yeah
Oh, yeah, oh, yeah, oh, yeah

She said that it's your duty to save your soul
To save it for someone
Moment in paradise
Just a moment in paradise
Oh, yeah

Moment in paradise
Moment in paradise
Moment in paradise
Moment in paradise
Oh, yeah
Moment in paradise
Moment in paradise
Just a moment in paradise

    Moment In Paradise Is About Me & For Me. I Also Wrote The Chords For The Chorus in addition to other music contributions But Jeff Never Credited Me. Zoom. Most of Zoom Is About Me & The Things I Told Him. I love Moment & Zoom. AWESOME. 7 Years Of Nonstop Work To Make Zoom, Our 4 Concerts were his first in almost 20 yrs. Yes a Genius. I love Zoom, Horace Wimp & Secret Messages. Too bad he was such a jerk. I loved working on music w him. I met him w George Harrison who loved Zazu & Had me play piano & sing my new songs for The Wilbury’s. George’s& I Became Good Friends In music & Life for years. I could write a book. George was an Incredibly Kool & Kind Man. Sometimes I’ll write to him as if he was still here. Brave Arjuna. Greatest Band in World History The Beatles. He Always Called Me A Genius To Everyone. Beautiful Man.

    Hello from France dear Rosie. I'm so sad you're calling Jeff a jerk. Of course I don't know him personnely but he was the reason i was interrested in music, starting learning the cello and composition. I know this song was about you and when it was reaslised I listened to it many times each and every hour. With some friends, we went to Wembley, the one who made it to dvd. I hope you're well. Kisses.

    Swedish Chick

    Hi Rosie. Since you don't seem to mind sharing your personal experiences with the world, I'm curious to know why you and Jeff broke up and why you think he's a jerk. I mean, he was obviously a jerk for not crediting you for your contributions, but I'm wondering if he had personal reasons for not doing so or if it was just because he didn't want to share the money? Also, I heard that a donation from an anonymous donor enabled you to get back to the United States, and I'm wondering if you think it may have been Jeff?

    Robert Garvey

    There's a strong smell of BS here, I very much doubt that the real Rosie would use YouTube to slate Geoff and make herself look pathetic with unsubstantiated digs at him. Some people are fantasists and have nothing better to do!

    Swedish Chick

    ​@Robert Garvey Yeah, normally I would agree with you. However, there were some things posted from this account 2-3 years ago which led me to believe that it might actually be her. But I can't remember exactly what it was, I just remember that it was believable at the time. But I'm not 100% convinced or anything, I just thought I'd ask some questions I would like to know in hopes that she would be willing to answer them if it really is her. Not holding my breath, though!

  10. knightsgallop

    I love this stuff.

  11. Mike Gilgenbach

    I get a definite Beatles vibe from this

  12. Lori MacBeth

    She said that it's your duty to save your soul
    To save it for someone

  13. Nives H

    Mis momentos en el paraíso es cuando te escucho ❤️✨❤️✨✨✨✨✨✨✨❤️

  14. Leo Grush

    Oh, yeah
    She never cried, she only tried
    To fly beyond her dreams
    No walls around her mind

    Deep inside she'd try to hide
    That she was way beyond her means
    No borders and no lines

    She said that it's your duty to save your soul
    To save it for someone
    Moment in paradise
    Just a moment in paradise
    Oh, yeah

    Moment in paradise
    Just a moment in paradise
    Oh, yeah

    She floated out upon the wind
    That blew my thoughts into the night
    She knew the things she had to know

    She drifted high above my mind
    Blew my brains out, did alright
    I think she knew it all along

    She said that it's your duty to save your soul
    To save it for someone
    Moment in paradise
    Just a moment in paradise
    Oh, yeah

    Moment in paradise
    Just a moment in paradise
    Oh, yeah
    Oh, yeah, oh, yeah, oh, yeah

  15. Darlene Lee

    Can anyone else hear Coldplay in this? Not saying ELO ripped off of Coldplay. I just hear a similar sound. Not any particular song of theirs, just their general sound, but “Clocks” does come to mind

    Darlene Lee

    mihali dellaportas hehe was never saying one was better than the other or one copied from the other. Just pointing out a similar sound :)

    mihali dellaportas

    Darlene Lee I agree there is a similarity possibly in the production of the "dry" vocal effect. They're both great bands but I have to admit I'm definately ab ELO man!

    Richard Smith

    This was released before clocks by Coldplay?

    nistel SE

    coldplay is turd compared to jeff lynne, just saying.

    hisoka866

    Lol Clock was released in 2005 while this album was was in 2001 just because you hear the ivory sounding melody just pure heresy ELO are way above on another level with respect to Coldplay.

  16. Cynder Charmander

    I remember listening to this album when I was 5 or 6 for the first time and being swept away into another universe by this song. It's even more gorgeous listening to it again now.

    Retrobiker subsonic

    So right. But Turned to stone takes me waaaaaaay back to another life.
    Bless

  17. Fedor Voronov

    I thought that they sang "my man in paradise"..)

    Fedor Voronov

    how come I am 24 and only now have explored that This song is by This band

  18. Richard Fairbairn

    Okay I'm now wondering why I have never listened to this before. I'm so dumb.

  19. Elmo Freen

    Love it. Ringo is on drums. I think I hear George's licks too. Beautiful. Thanks Gents

  20. Theresa Ruble

  22. NEB 78

  23. Slap Johnson

    Oh, yeah
    She never cried, she only tried
    To fly beyond her dreams

    Deep inside she'd try to hide

    She said that it's your duty to save your soul
    To save it for someone
    Moment in paradise
    Just a moment in paradise

    She said that it's your duty to save your soul
    To save it for someone
    Moment in paradise
    Just a moment in paradise
    Oh, yeah
    Moment in paradise
    Just a moment in paradise
    Oh, yeah
    Oh, yeah, oh, yeah, oh, yeah

  24. Tom Dude

    I'm sad this is no longer on Spotify :(

    Trevor Dailey

    I’ve been wondering that myself do you know why it ever got removed? Jeff’s Solo work is also gone

    Indicasongs

    It’s back!

    roger riveroll

    I´ve heard it was because jeff wanted people to focus on his new album and classic stuff

    Ronnie Smith

    Just download it with utube catcher

  25. Josep Lluis Sanchez Brugarola

    Superb....

  26. martin clark

    love the old elo and the new elo Jeff Lynn alone in the universe album.. missed this and only found because of the fillm American Hustle and the track Long Black Road which seems to be a Japanese only CD extra track to this album.. wtf?!! how didn't that make the proper album!!

    Jeff Lynne is a genius and I hope there's one more album at least to come from him..

  27. Lynne Brisco

    Love this track....Great music Jeff Lynne

  28. 1stSaintsFan

    ELO is Desert Music. If I was stuck out in the middle of the desert and only could have one artist's music, it would be Jeff Lynne's catalog.

    Smash Diggins

    Yes to this so much!

  29. Sławomir Kędzierski

    cała płyta full wypas

  30. Sergio Cortez

    Bello.....!

  33. Lilia Ayala

    hermosa canción, gracias x saber q Ringo está en la batería, Jeef Lynne, uniko

    Carlos Beatle

    y George en guitarra slide

  34. bassmanjoe

    Never cared for the drum sound, my only complaint.

    ericebryan

    +bassmanjoe Ringo's tom toms on this sound lovely, deep and even, and he created another signature fill which becomes a motif through the song.

    Spider Reagan And Team 420 Power Spider Reagan

    Ringo is amazing So I disagree

  35. Mutt1961

    It literally doesn't get any better than Jeff Lynne.

    Rebecca Orsag

    @Mutt1961 exactly

    could not agree more

  36. игорь лопаткин

    Класс!

  37. Pedro de Almeida

    Superb.

  38. Leonidas Troizos

    E.L.O.....perfect!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  39. David Caballero

    Excelente! Hermosa Versión! y con Ringo en Batería, para tener guardado en la estantería y escucharlo en momentos únicos... Bravo Jeff Lynne!

  40. taylor hannah

    I luv this song!!! ELO 4EVER!!!!!!!

    Werner Bednarzik

    Yeah, ELO for ever! That's for sure!

  41. Ben McCallum

    Everytime I listen to this album I'm amazed by the songwriting and production - there's not a filler on the album and one of the rare examples of a comeback album every bit as good as something recoreded decades ago. Jeff Lynn is still largely unsung.

    Gregory Wheless

    Ben McCallum I agree with you my friend 100% ! Hard to believe some people don't like this masterpiece

  42. TheMachinimaBrothers

    Jeff Lynne has an album coming in October

    Charles Wycks

  43. Hughbaloo

  44. Kathryn Brown

    Fantastic Album,Awesome sound!!!

  45. Frank Barros

    TO WHO MAY CONCERN :
    I´m coming back to this HOLY place of ELO just to apply that, after all these months I got other wonderful girl, the girl from before got married and refuse herself to hear this song and...HELLO FOLKS !!! THE MOST REAL CURE IS TO GET ANOTHER LOVE.
    LOVE CURE WITH ANOTHER LOVE.

  46. Adri c

    Very good song.

  47. billy hunter
