Woke up into a dream and I was walking
Up and down the streets of Cairo
And then I heard a voice that said, I know you
Its time for you to turn and face me

Her hair was long, her eyes reached out and touched me
She said, I know just what it is youre after

Death is all around you
So, you look for freedom
I know where to find it
Lets go to the river

We sailed upon the Nile, I was enchanted
By the beauty in her magic
She showed me that my fears were unimportant
Then she touched me with her vision

Her skin was dark, her voice was liquid fire
She said, I am your mate and souls desire

Love is all around you
Light is deep within you
Life is always flowing
Lets go down the river

Her skin was dark, her voice was liquid fire
She said, I am your mate and souls desire

Love is all around you
Light is deep within you
Life is always flowing
Lets go down the river

Why should we [Incomprehensible]
I know it's what you feeling
I know where you going
Down by the river
Come and hit it with fire
[Incomprehensible]
