Billy Fury recorded Halfway To Paradise back in 1961 and had a #3 hit on the UK charts with this song. The Beatles had 24 hits in the 1960s and so did Billy Fury. He was the English Elvis as some called him. He even starred in a few films during those early years.
He underwent heart surgery in 1972 and 1976 but time ran out in the early part of 1983 when his manager found him on the floor of his home in London, the morning after a night recording session.
Billy Fury died on Jan 28th 1983 from a heart attack. He was 42 years old.

I want - to be your lover - But your friend - is all I've stayed
I'm only halfway to paradise - so near - yet so far away
I long for your lips - to kiss my lips - But just when - I think they may
You lead me halfway to paradise - so near - yet so far away - (partial intro)
Mmm bein' close to you is almost heaven (heaven)
But seein' you can do just so much
It hurts me so to know your heart's a treasure (treasure)
And that my heart - is forbidden to touch .. so
Put your sweet lips - close to my lips - and tell me that's where
They're gonna stay
Don't lead me halfway to paradise - so near - yet so far away - (partial intro)
Oh, uh, oh so near - yet so far away - (partial intro)
Mmm so near, yet so far away - (partial intro)
