Baby when I met you there was peace unknown, I set out to get you with a fine tooth comb
      F                                      C     F C
I was soft inside, there was something goin' on
C
You do something to me that I can't explain, hold me closer and I feel no pain
      F                                        C
Every beat of my heart, we got something goin' on
 
               Fmaj7
Tender love is blind, it requires a dedication
Fm
  All this love we feel needs no conversation
   C
We ride it together, uh huh, makin' love with each other, uh huh
 
        C                        F
Islands in the stream, that is what we are
        Dm
No one in between, how can we be wrong?
      C               F
Sail away with me to another world
         C
And we rely on each other, uh huh
          Dm                  C
From one lover to another, uh huh
 
G#
I can't live without you if the love was gone, everything is nothing if you got no one
            C#                                            G#         C# G#
And you did walk in the night, slowly losin' sight of the real thing
    G#
But that won't happen to us and we got no doubt, too deep in love and we got no way out
        C#                                               G#
And the message is clear, this could be the year for the real thing
 
                 C#maj7
No more will you cry. Baby I will hurt you never
   C#m
We start and end as one in love forever we can
G#
Ride it together, uh huh, makin' love with each other, uh huh
