"Islands In The Stream" Song Lyrics

Islands In The Stream Lyrics

Lyrics by: BeeGees
Music by: BeeGees
Kenny Rogers & Dolly Parton immortalized this tune in 1983, and their duet was the #1 country music hit single of that year. This hasn't been covered by many other top American recording artists as Kenny & Dolly's duet is considered the definitive one.

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 can ride it together , ah ha
Making love with each other , ah ha

Chorus:
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 cant live without you if the love was gone
Everything is nothin if you got no one
And you did walk in tonight
Slowly loosen sight of the real thing

I can't live without you if the love was gone
Everything is nothing when you got no one
And you 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

Tag:
Sail away
Oh, come sail away with me
