Riding on a tradewind
Filling my sails with a soft and southerly breeze
Living on the ocean blue

Dreaming of the islands
Rapping myself in the glow of a tropical moon
I never shiver when the sun goes down

All the Earth she sings to me
Every shallow, every tree
Surely my loves shining like the sea

I can make you happy
If I can I'll take you away on a wave in my arms
Never leave you on the edge all alone

If you feel like dancing
Rolling like the water across my sleepless night
Making me a peaceful place

All my life to be with you
All I ever want to do
Knowing you are feeling that way too

Distant thunder, heavy seas
Rocky Mountain memories
Surely I was lost till I found thee
