some find it in deep meditation
or a megachurch’s crusading zeal
adrenaline junkies breaking their backbones
to discover if they can still feel
some seek it in cocktails of liquor
or in clear melting crystals of P
but to lie in the arms of my sweetheart
was the doorway to paradise for me

if your heart has ever been broken
if you’ve woken up to emptiness each day
you’ll recognize the yearning that I speak of
and you’ll understand exactly what I say
some ride the road of religion
some believe that money holds the key
but now she lies in the arms of another
and that doorway has been closed against me
