I've Never Been To Me

Lyricist: Hirsch,Ken/Miller,Ronald    Composer: Hirsch,Ken/Miller,Ronald

Hey lady you lady
Cursin' at your life
You're a discontened mother
And a regimented wife

I've no doubt you dream about
The thinds you'll never do
But I wish someone had to talked to me
Like I wanna talk to you

I've been to Georgia and California
And anywhere I could run
Took the head 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 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 million lies

Oh I've been to Nice and the Isle of Greece
While I sipped champagne on a yacht
I moved like harlot in Monte Carlo
And showed'em what I've got
I've been undressed by kings
And I've seen some things
That a woman ain't supposed to see
Hey Lady I've been to paradise
But I 've never been to me

Sometimes I've been to cryin'
For unborn children
That might have made me complete
But I I took the sweet life
And never knew I'd bitter from the sweet
I spent my life exploring the subtle whoring
That cost too much to be free
Hey lady, I've been to paradise (I've been to paradise)
but I've never been to me

I've been to paradise
but I've never been to me
