Paraiso by Smokey Mountain


Paraiso is a song that was composed by Mr.Ryan Cayabyab. A well known music composer and director here in the Philippines.

Smokey Mountain was group composed of teens back in the mids 80's to mid 90's. This song Paraiso is a very powerful song that talks about Nature and what is happening to the surroundings of Smokey Mountain.

I. Return to a land called paraiso A place where a dying river ends No birds dare fly over paraiso No space allows them to endure The smoke that screens the air The grass that's never there

Refrain 1:
And if I could see a single bird What a joy! I try to write some words and create A simple song to be heard by the rest of the world


II.I live in a land called paraiso
In a house made of cardboard floors and walls I learned to be free in paraiso Free to claim anything I see Matching rags for my clothes Plastic bags for the colds


Refrain 2:
And if empty cans were all I have What a joy! I never fight to take someone else's coins and live with fear like the rest of the boys


Chorus:
Paraiso, help me make a stand Paraiso, take me by the hand Paraiso, make the world understand That if I could see a single bird What a joy! This tired and hungry land could expect Some truth and hope and respect From the rest of the world


Repeat Refrain 2

Repeat Chorus
