Temptations, The - Paradise (Wings Of Love) Lyrics




Paradise, it's being here with you
Close to your heart
Oh, the sweet harmony, is beautiful

Tenderly, you receive my love
I release myself and we are one
Flowing deep, like a river
You rejoice inside, and we are one

In your eyes
I see an open door
That leads straight to your heart
All the way to your soul, it's beautiful

Paradise

A picture is worth a thousand words
A feeling is worth it more and more

Flowing deep, like a river
you rejoice inside, and we are one

Paradise, it's being here with you
Close to your heart
Oh, the sweet harmony, is beautiful

    It’s hard to deal with what is because U. R so consumed with what was.which is past tense my my I’m still dreaming and flying on the wings of love ❤️ DPitts. Dream on sometimes that’s all we.

  24. Gregory Gordon

    Good song

  25. Frances Rush

    Classic Tempts! My Jam here! Love this one! Love the Tempts! Much Love!

  26. Chiseled Buff Daddy

    4:59 shows Dennis Edwards' extraordinary vocal range. It sounds a bit like Ali Woodson.

  27. Charles Gussom

    Reminds me of when I was 17 years old sitting in fairmont park in Philly with my new girlfriend. We had a nickel bag, some wine, some munchies, and each other!...now what more can a man ask for?

  28. Andrew Perry

    Going up never coming down again,peace.rip Dennis.

  29. Firecrest

    'House Party' was the follow up to 'A Song For You' so don't agree with Adagiosoulb4flesh that this was a miserable failure. Commercially 'Wings of Love' was a success. #3 R&B chart and ~29 pop. I do agree its not very good though.

    e37a

    Actually, "House Party" and "Wings of Love" BOTH shipped gold! The amazing thing about this album was straight funky, but this side? Absolutely incredible!!

  30. Boomer

    Rest In Peace Mr. Dennis Edwards

  31. Terence Buie

    this lp never came out on cd ever you will have to convert this orginal lp on digtal or cd yourself.

  32. SAM The SHAM

    RIP Dennis Edwards you helped Motown and THE Temptations receive their First Grammy NOT David Ruffin or any of the other temps! The song was Cloud Nine.Few people know that! No one gave you your props but l am giving it to you my brother. You truly left your mark at Motown!

  33. Tasha Boyd

    Was not born until the 80's.

    FIX IT PRODUCTIONS

    POOR YOU BOO...ME 1955 LOL

  34. Lakeisha Chunn

    am a young girl but my parents got us hook to this song everytime I hear it tears start to flow because I miss my dad rip daddy love you

  35. Leroy Macfunk

    This song will always be Top Shelf, The Greatest ! ! !

  36. Charles Stevens

    THAT ALBUM CAUSED ALOT OF PROBLEMS WITH THE GROUP. JEFFREY BOWEN HAD GROWN UP IN MOTOWN AND FELT THE TEMPS WERE NOW BENEATH HIM, AND HE FELT DENNIS WAS THE JOINT SO HE MIXED DOWN THE BACKROUND WHICH DID NOT SIT WELL WITH OTIS BUT HE LET IT GO,BUT AS FATE WOULD HAVE IT AN ENGINEER LEFT THE MIKE OPEN AND HE SAID "IF I WAS WORKIN WITH THE UNDISPUTED TRUTH, I WOULDNT HAVE TO GO THROUGH THIS SHIT" WHATEVER THAT MEANT, ANYWAY, OTIS WENT HOME AND THAT SHIT WAS EATING HIM UP SO MUCH THAT HE CALLED MELVIN TO TAKE HIM TO THE HOSPITAL CAUSE HE WAS LIKE PARALISED ON ONE SIDE, SO HE CALLED A MEETING WITH BERRY GORDY & THE GROUP,ENGI NEERS ETC AND TOLD JEFFREY BOWEN HIS HEALTH IS NOT TO BE FUCKED WITH AND IF HE DISSES AGAIN ANAS WHUPIN IS FOR HIM. JEFF APOLOGIZED AND THEY GOT THROUGH IT. NOW SLY STONE WROTE "UP THE CREEK" OTIS SAID BUT DUE TO A LOT OF RED TAPE HE IS NOT CREDITED, ALSO IF YOU LOOK ON "MELLOW MOOD" YOU WILL SEE JEFFREY BOWEN HAD ALOT TO DO WITH THAT ALBUM, AND BACK THEN HE WAS SO PROUD TO BE WORKIN WITH THE TEMPS, BUT HE HAD GOTTEN TOO BIG, SAME OLD STORY ALL THE TIME; FOLKS FORGET WHERE THEY COME FROM UNTIL THEY GET HUMBLED, THEN GOD,GOD I WONT DO IT NO MORE, I KNOW U WONT U COMMING HOME. THIS STORY IS IN HIS AUTO "TEMPTATIONS"AND A VERY GOOD FOLLOW UP BOOK IS"AINT TOO PROUD TO BEG"......NOW ..THAT IS AN EXCELLENT BOOK THATS VERY INDEPTH AND YOU CAN FEEL THE HONESTY ,NOT A MUD SLINGING JOINT, TRUTHFUL

    EA Hughes

    Thanx for the insight .

  59. john barnett

    Simply Beautiful!!!

  60. TheTanya1159

    Incredible vocals from the late Dennis Edwards. Not to mention the harmonies of fellow Temps. The composition,lyrics........excellent percussion,winds,and keys. I am not claiming by any means to be a music scholar....but real basic "ear sense," this is an exquisite piece. Unfortunate for the masses that it did not hit the charts.  Folks in the business could have even made $$$$ on remakes..... just simply a beautiful work.Yes, so nice."Diamonds can't glow like love...." Wow!

    Arlena F.

    Dennis Edwards is still alive.

    james primus

    DENNIS EDWARDS IS STILL ALIVE, HE HAS HIS OWN GROUP CALLED  THE TEMPTATIONS FEATURING DENNIS EDWARDS ALONG WITH PAUL WILLIAMS JR.

    @tawheedization Everybody has a story of there encounter with this album, I grew with 60's rock and
    hard core blue's being my first love, but in the 80's and 90s I remember many temps fan's who never

    reuin.. I hav oftn ben on th wrng sde of th law. but i nvr hve approved of nor participated in the kind of
    act that we c so much of. I am glad he failed. i wish they all did. demons

  81. Ibrahim Babiker

  83. Chris Taylor

    One of the best love songs that I ever heard in my life. Dennis Edwards was the most underrated but one of the best voices at Motown.

  84. Chw4

    The Wings of Love and A Song for You albums are Dennis' best work as a Temptation......

    hollidayevery

    True! This could have been an amazing DENNIS EDWARDS Solo Album!!

  85. gannasgirl

    I love this album and especially this cut. I lost my album years ago and have been looking for a copy. I went to record stores but they could find no trace of it. You have done what no other could do for me. You made this album accessible to me after all of my searches which turned up dead ends. Thank you so much.

    Leslie Lees

    Try Record Exchange in Pittsburgh.

  86. whistlersmom5

    This album got me through a semester of college. It is the hardest record in the world to find. Thank you for making it available. It is art.

  87. David Fuller

    In our estimation one of the very best Temptations songs! Beautiful! And it has lots of meaning for us :)

  88. Michael Lester

  96. donald clark

    In 1976, i would lie in bed and listen to Dennis Edwards pour his heart into this one. It never got air play but,I was in South Korea at the time and, I heard in our barracks,I have the LP to this day.

    SAM The SHAM

    donald clark l heard this song in Paris France at a Reggie club while stationed in Belgium. 1982-1984.l had bought the ablum at Ft Bragg NC years before so l was shocked to hear them playing it in Paris France! l was Really home sick for the states and wanted to Leave and come back to the U.S. you can Keep overseas Give me the U.S. any day!RIP Dennis Edwards you were ONE of the Great leads of the Temptations giving them their 1st Grammy! Cloud Nine something even David Ruffin or Eddie Kendrick could do!

  97. funkedbyinjection

    Eddie Hazel from Funkadelic also played on this lp; but i'm not sure what song.

  98. wlsn11359

    Pleeease!!!! Hell no. They will screw it up. Don't tamper with perfection.
