Baby, when I met you there was peace unknown
I set out to get you with a fine tooth comb
I was soft inside
There was something going on

You do something to me that I can't explain
Hold me closer and I feel no pain
Every beat of my heart
We got something going on

Tender love is blind, it requires a dedication
All this love we feel needs no conversation
We can ride it together, ah, ha
Making love with each other, ah, ha

Islands in the stream, that is what we are
No one in between, how can we be wrong?
Sail away with me to another world
And we rely on each other, ah, ha
From one lover to another, ah, ha

I can't live without you if the love was gone
Everything is nothing if you got no one
And you just walk in the night
Slowly losing sight of the real thing

But that won't happen to us and we got no doubt
Too deep in love and we got no way out
And the message is clear
This could be the year of the real thing

No more will you cry, baby, I will hurt you never
We start and end as one, in love forever
We can ride it together, ah, ha
Making love with each other, ah, ha

Islands in the stream, that is what we are
No one in between, how can we be wrong?
Sail away with me to another world
And we'll rely on each other, ah, ha
From one lover to another, ah, ha

Sail away, sail away
Sail away with me
One, two

Islands in the stream, that is what we are
No one in between, how can we be wrong?
Sail away with me to another world
And we'll rely on each other, ah, ha
From one lover to another, ah, ha

Here we go
Islands in the stream, that is what we are
No one in between, how can we be wrong?
Sail away with me to another world
And we'll rely on each other, ah, ha
From one lover to another, ah, ha
