If only I could find a place
Where smiling strangers knew our faces
I would take you there

A place with constant melody
Where you and I could wander free

If only I could find a place
Where smiling strangers knew our faces
I would take you there

A place with constant melody
Where you and I could wander free
I would take you there

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
