Iv Been To Pardise

 Oh, I've been to Georgia and California and anywhere I could run
Took the hand of a preacher man
And we made love in the sun
But I ran out of places and friendly faces
Because I had to be free
I've been to paradise but I've never been to me...

Please lady please lady
Don't just walk away
Cause I have this need to tell you
Why I'm all alone today
I can see so much of me still living in your eyes
Won't you share a part of a weary heart that has lived a million lives

Oh, I've been to Nice and the isle of Greece
When I sipped champagne on a yacht
I moved like Harlow in Monte Carlo
And showed them what I've got
I've been undressed by kings
And I've seen some things that a woman ain't s'pose to see
I've been to paradise but I've never been to me...

Hey, you know what paradise is?
It's a lie
A fantasy we created about people and places as we like them to be
But you know what truth is?
it's that little baby you're holding
And it's that man you fought with this morning
The same one you are gonna make love to tonight
That's truth, that's love

I love this song. And if this song is about MM then I agree. She fits the song well. It does highlights everything about her. Too bad I can't view the video to where I am located.=((

A friend sent me this video. I've avoided listening to this song since it came out .. I diddn't get the refrain. BUT if it's actually about Marilyn (whom I love), it makes a bit more sense. Still... I think she had a lot of enjoyment in her life, children or not. And she most certainly knew who she was,
