I sang your praises daily
And we let ourselves get swept away 
It's true baby 
We held heaven in our hands for days 
You wait a long time 
For something wild to take you somewhere 
And all I needed was to fly 
It's a long way from paradise to ordinary 
Picture us just smiling there, we didn't have a care 
I remember, how it all came true 
It was oh so tender 
And I was lost with you 
By the sweet sorrento moon 
But the stars don't burn that brightly 
Every season surely slips away 
But you baby 
You're the reason why I chose to stay 
You wait a long time to find your dream and hold on to it 
And all I needed was to fly 
It's a long day from innocence to understanding 
A picture of a child at play, is how I feel today 
And I remember, how it all came true 
It was oh so tender, and I was lost with you 
By the sweet sorrento moon... (la luna de sorrento)
