Till Paradise Freezes Over    O’Reilly


Softly as the snow falls covering the ground


Softly as the night falls on the sleeping town


Shiver in the darkness


They say it’s minus ten


The mercury is falling as I look at you my friend



Softly as my heart falls with every weary sigh


Silence like a knife falls, there’s trouble in your eyes


Quick silver in motion


Impossible to tell


I still don’t have a notion


Though I know you so well



And when it all falls down


I’ll still be around


When the blue clouds pass


To chase them from the sky


And when the world is tough


When friendship’s just not enough


Then I will stay by you……..Till paradise freezes over
