Foreign affair.
Take a trip in the air
To a tropical beach,
An island to reach.
A new territory
For an intimate story,
A lagoon by la mer.
It's a foreign affair.
Drifting and free
On a mystical sea.
A wishful emotion,
A drop in the ocean.
A hush in the air
You can feel anywhere
In the cool twilight
On a tropical night.
Floating on air.
Foreign affair.
A magical potion,
A cool locomotion.
A dream,
A prayer.
(It's a foreign affair!)
Floating on air.
Foreign affair.

A cool locomotion.
A dream,
A prayer.
