#RhythmandBluesVariety Hour: Thunder in Paradise

From the collection Kingdom

First, fuck Hulk Hogan.

Thunder in Paradise was his foray into first-run syndication television territory and it lasted for a good eight months and one television movie back in 1993-1994. Thunder was the boat.

I found it to be a dope title.

Thunder in Paradise- Written 10/9/11

There’s a darkness in my soul

I hear that thunder roll

You don’t even look at me the same way anymore

We gotta make this right

Don’t wanna start a fight

But I hear some trouble in our paradise

Our love is growing cold

I hear that thunder roll

Yes there’s some thunder in our paradise

 

I don’t feel as close to you as I should

I don’t know what’s going on between us

What are we letting defeat us

I’d meet you halfway if only you would

Things have changed with us so quickly

All the love gone in the blink of an eye

I don’t know exactly why

I can feel it in the way you kiss me

 

You don’t touch me like you used to

You don’t fuck me like you used to either

Every other word is something smart

I feel this hardness growing in my heart

(I have to tell you)

 

There’s a darkness in my soul

I hear that thunder roll

You don’t even look at me the same way anymore

We gotta make this right

Don’t wanna start a fight

But I hear some trouble in our paradise

Our love is growing cold

I hear that thunder roll

Yes there’s some thunder in our paradise

 

Baby when did we become so distant

Do either of us know the truth

Where is the proof

That we were crazy about each other for a brief instance

You don’t even call you don’t even smile

Am I not doing what I’m supposed to do for you

What do you want me to do

Because I’ve been out of answers for a long while

 

Do I not love you like I used to

Do I not need you like I used to

We’ve created a small slice of paradise

And baby you are my life

 

There’s a darkness in my soul

I hear that thunder roll

You don’t even look at me the same way anymore

We gotta make this right

Don’t wanna start a fight

But I hear some trouble in our paradise

Our love is growing cold

I hear that thunder roll

Yes there’s some thunder in our paradise
