Only love, only love,
Will save us now,
Only love,
Will talk me down,

Oh, you're my unlikely hero,
I try so hard,
But you won't surrender,
I, want you to know,

I like everybody,
But not everybody like me,
My love's not an island,
It's the tip of a volcano,

I'm alive, I'm alive,
But only just,
I'm alive,
No-one to trust,

Oh, you're my unlikely hero,
I try so hard,
But you won't surrender,
I, want you to know,

I like everybody,
But not everybody likes me,
My love's not an island,
It's the tip of a volcano,

(Oh Gumbaro)
Everybody talks,
(Oh Gumbaro)
No-one hears,
(Oh Gumbaro)
Everybody talks,
(Oh Gumbaro)

Unlikely hero,
I try so hard,
But you won't surrender,
I, want you to know,

I like everybody,
But not everybody likes me,
My love's not an island,
It's the tip of a volcano,

Only love, only love,
Will save us now,
Only love,
Will save us now.
