It's paradise to be near you like this
Because of you my life is now worthwhile
And I can smile

It's paradise to be near you like this
Because of you my life is now worthwhile
And I can smile
Because of you

I first played this song on KTEP, the college radio station, in 1953. My girl-friend and I were cheerleaders at UTEP...and this was
"our song". Later that same year we got married in a beautiful midnight ceremony in Saragosa, Mexico. She is gone now, but I "can smile because of her"...

I just found out that this song was my aunt and uncle's wedding song when they were married on February 6, 1954. My aunt paased away this week on March 17, 2013. Her family said she played this song continuously before she married my uncle. I can see why. Rest in Peace Aunt Anne. I love you always.

In 1952 , a soldier at Walker Air Force base in Roswell, N.M. sang that song to me while we stood on my front porch. I have always sang it, love the song and meaning,
