Djavan - Bird Of Paradise Lyrics

You appear on the horizon, far away
My desire to be there with you
Stirs the wind and fills the sails.
In the bay I drop the anchor down, swim ashore
On the beach the coconut palms,
Jasmine, frangipane and you...

Your silent eyes convince me
I'm marooned
We're safe inside this azure blue lagoon

I want to know you, bird of paradise
I want to show you, all 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 ships - like so many toys -
Fear the wind and fight the waves
In your arms are forgotten dreams,
nothing more
Here the sky is perfectly clear
Evening, starlight, moonlight and you

Your silent eyes convince me
I'm marooned
We're safe inside this azure blue lagoon

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

I want to know you, bird of paradise
I want to show you, all the love that I feel

Just you and me, a mango tree
The bare necessities of love
My bird of paradise, I realize
That you were sent here from above
You're my bird
Of paradise
My bird of paradise
