Come with me 
Close your eyes and touch what greets you there 
Reaching out 
Stretch your hands across the sea 
Come with me 
Close your eyes and touch what meets you there 
Reaching out 
Stretch your hands across the sea 

Sitting in my room, nothing much to say 
I heard you calling a thousand miles away 
I did not mean to hurt you, you took me by surprise 
There is still a chance if we just close our eyes 

Oh lady 

Come with me 
Close your eyes and touch what greets you there 
Reaching out 
Stretch your hands across the sea 
Come with me 
Close your eyes and touch what meets you there 
Reaching out 
Stretch your hands across the sea 

I can't explain this feeling 
I won't begin to try 
There is still a chance if we just close our eyes
