Step outside, take a look at the stars
Catch a glimpse of the way things are
Making contact, making contact
Making contact, making contact

Smell of sweet fresh oil on skin
When you move on me like the tide coming in
Making contact, making contact
Making contact, making contact

So many ways to understand
One for every woman and man
Been that way since the world began

I hear the drumming of the surf and I have to dance
Stepping to the rhythm of circumstance
Making contact, making contact
Making contact, making contact

I feel so huge, I feel so small
I feel so good I want to swallow it all
Making contact, making contact
Making contact, making contact

So many ways to understand
One for every woman and man
Been that way since the world began

Making contact (swimming in an ocean of love)
Making contact (swimming in an ocean of love)
Making contact (swimming in an ocean of love)
Making contact (swimming in an ocean of love)

We move together like the waves (swimming in an ocean of love)
Every night and every day (swimming in an ocean of love)
One world, one human race (swimming in an ocean of love)
One kiss from a smiling face (swimming in an ocean of love)
See that sign coming into view? (swimming in an ocean of love)
Mother sea welcomes you (swimming in an ocean of love)
Making contact (swimming in an ocean of love)
Making contact (swimming in an ocean of love)
Making contact (swimming in an ocean of love)
Making contact (swimming in an ocean of love)
Making contact (swimming in an ocean of love)
