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 something 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 something going on 

 Tender love is blind 
It requires a dedication 
All this love we feel needs no conversation 
We ride it together, ah ha 
 Making love with each other, ah ha 
 
 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 ha 
From one lover to another, ah ha 
 
I can't live without you if the love was gone
 Everything is nothing if you got no one 
And you just walk in the night 
 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 ha
 Making love with each other, ah ha
 
 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 ha
From one lover to another, ah ha

 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 ha
From one lover to another, ah ha

 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 ha
From one lover to another, ah ha

 Islands in the stream 
That is what we are
No one in between
