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 ride it together uh huh
Makin' love with each other uh huh
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 uh huh
From one lover to another uh huh

I can't live without you if the love was gone
Everything is nothing if you got no one
And you did walk in the night, slowly losin' 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 messages is clear this could be the year for 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 uh huh
Makin' love with each other uh huh
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 uh huh
From one lover to another uh huh

Sail away
Come sail away with me

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 uh huh
From one lover to another uh huh

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 uh huh
From one lover to another uh huh

Islands in the stream, that is what we are
