Começar de Novo
Make believe we've landed
On a desert island
Bathe me in the waters
Warm me in the moonlight
Taste me with your kisses
Find those secret places
Touch me 'till I tremble
Free my wings for flying
And catch me while I'm falling
Keep your arms around me
Like there's no tomorrow

Let me know you love me
On a little island
Not a soul can see us
Show me how to love you
Teach me how to please you
Lay your dreams beside me
Only stars will listen
To our cries and whispers
You were made to love me
And I was made to love you
Keep your arms around me
Loose yourself inside me
Make it last forever

I can see the island
Shining in the distance
Now we're getting closer
Keep your arms around me
Love, we're almost there!
