I should be feelin’ so happy
to wake up each day in the sun.
But I can’t seem to raise a smile
since this days begun.
‘cos when you’re feelin’ so lonely,
there’s just one thing you need.
Dark days in paradise,
dark days indeed.

I followed her to the airport,
I got down on my knees.
But she just stood there smiling,
ignoring all my please.
Then she left me so lonely,
it made my poor heart bleed.
Dark days in paradise,
dark days indeed.

I tried drinkin’ that white rum,
I tried some black stuff too.
But it don’t make no difference
when I’m so far from you.
‘cos when you’re feeling so lonely,
there’s just one thing you need.
Dark days in paradise,
dark days indeed.

Dark days in paradise,
dark days indeed.
Dark days indeed.
Dark days indeed.

O’le Gary sure has a way with words…

Strangely enough, probably also the only Gary I’ll ever be inclined to like from the outset without great reserve.
