Baby, when I met you there was peace unknown
I set out to get you with a fine tooth comb
I was soft inside, there was somethin' going on
You do something to me that I can't explain 
Hold me closer and I feel no pain
 Every beat of my heart 
We got somethin' goin' on
 Tender love is blind 
It requires a dedication 
All this love we feel
 Needs no conversation 
We ride it together, ah-ah
Makin' love with each other, ah-ah

 Islands in the stream 
That is what we are
No one in-between
How can we be wrong 
Sail away with me to another world
And we rely on each other, ah-ah
From one lover to another, ah-ah

I can't live without you if the love was gone
 Everything is nothin' if you got no one
And you did walk in tonight  Slowly losing sight of the real thing 

But that won't happen to us and we got no doubt 
Too deep in love and we got no way out
And the message is clear 
This could be the year for the real thing 

No more will you cry
Baby, I will hurt you never 
We start and end as one, in love forever 
We can ride it together, ah-ah
Makin' love with each other, ah-ah
 Islands in the stream 
That is what we are
No one in-between
How can we be wrong 
Sail away with me to another world
And we rely on each other, ah-ah
From one lover to another, ah-ah

Sail away
Oh, come sail away with me

 Islands in the stream 
That is what we are
No one in-between
How can we be wrong 
Sail away with me to another world
And we rely on each other, ah-ah
From one lover to another, ah-ah

 Islands in the stream 
That is what we are
No one in-between
How can we be wrong 
Sail away with me to another world
And we rely on each other, ah-ah
From one lover to another, ah-ah
