You appear on the horizon far away
My desire to be there with you stirs the wind and fills the sense
In the bay I drop the anchor down swim ashore
On the beach the coconut palms, orchids, planchoniana and you

Your silent eyes convince me I'm your own
We're safe inside this agile blue lagoon

I want to know you bird of paradise
I want to show you of the love that I feel
I need to touch you bird of paradise
I need your touch to make this fantasy real

On the sea a storm is raging far away
And the ship like so many toys fear the wind and fight the waves
In your arms it's a forgotten dream, nothing more
Here the sky is perfectly clear, evening star the moonlight and you

Your silent eyes convince me I'm your own
We're safe inside this agile blue lagoon

I want to know you bird of paradise
I want to show you of the love that I feel
I need to touch you bird of paradise
I need your touch to make this fantasy real

Just you and me [Incomprehensible] of dreams
The bare necessities of love
My bird of paradise, I realize
But you were sent here from above
You're my bird of paradise
My bird of paradise

Just you and me [Incomprehensible] of dreams
The bare necessities of love
My bird of paradise, I realize
But you were sent here from above
You're my bird of paradise
My bird of paradise
