Verse 1
G                                               Em                     C   G C   G
Every time I look into your eyes I see paradise.......paradise.  
G                                                          Em   ­                                                      C     G  C                           G
Pleasure is a thing I know alot about, but its something I can do without.......If you wanted me to.

Chorus
Em                      D                      G        ­                  C
I may sound crazy, that's probably because I am
C                                                 G
Yes I'm crazy, I'm crazy over you.
Em                    D                        G            ­                   C
And just maybe, if you were half as crazy about me
C                                                             ­                    G
Maybe then we could be crazy together for a while.

Verse 2
G                                                          Em  ­                                                         C   G   C                       G                               Every night when I'm lying in my bed thoughts are racing through my head....I can't stop thinking about you.
G                                          Em               ­                  C  G   C             G
When I finally do fall asleep, your face is all I see.....every night in my dreams.

Chorus

Verse 3
G                                                              ­                                   Em                                            C   G    C
There isn't a single cell in your whole body that I don't love, and I thank the lord above......for allowing me
          G
to spend some time with you.
G                                                           ­                                         Em                      ­                          C   G  C
There's nothing in this world I wouldn't sacrifice for your love, except for maybe my guitar......Because then I
                    G                  
couldn't play this song for you.

Chorus

Break
G                                  C        
­It's just these love battles
G                                 C
These love....struggles,
G                                   C
But now I have found you.
G                                        G7
I found my paradise, paradise.


G                                               Em                     C     G  C   G
Every time I look into your eyes I see a paradise.......paradise.
Feedback appreciated. Peace and love to all.

Am                            G
Ripples are echoes, for those who can't hear
Am                                    G
thunder has light-ning, to tell them its near
Am                                G
The moon is an echo, for no sun in the sky
Am                     G
day is an echo, for night that is why

Am                              G
Guitar’s are in echo, when they are strum
Am                      G
voices respond, re-sounding the hum
Am                               G
Shadows are echoes, at NOON they’re alone
Am                                   G
but the word it reflects, so its called palindrome

Am                                     G
Trains they make echoes, in tunnels with *****
Am                                     G
and though it’s but one, they call them two hoots
Am                           G
A bell has an echo, when ringing the news
Am                            G
anvils have echoes, when horses wear shoes

Am                                  G
Rainbows have echoes, in pots at each end
Am                       G
who was it said, that sunbeams can't bend
Am                           G
Lighthouses flash, with echoes in Morse
Am                                G
for posh sailing boats, and not Viking Norse

Am                            G
A bow has an echo, with a wow at the end
Am                            G
one midnight bark, starts setting a trend
Am                             G
A dream is an echo, of what we once did
Am                   G
hid in a bottle, behind Jeannie’s lid

Am                                    G                
Our words in the ether, will never meet
Am                            G
that’s why an echo, can never cheat
Am                           G
My echo my echo, is loneliest of all
Am                                  G
that’s why they listen, at my wailing wall

Am                                 G
Heartbeats are echoes, like yours and like mine
Am                              G
that’s why this song, must end with a pine.


                             Chorus

        Am                       G
        Echo all echoes, are art on the wall,
        Am                                G
        must be the sadd-est, sounds of them all
        Am                       G
        Echo all echoes, are art on the wall
        Am                               G
        must be the sadd-est, sounds of them all
        Am                       G
        Echo all echoes, are art on the wall,
        Am                                G
        must be the sadd-est, sounds of them all.
