By a summer sea,
Beneath those starlit skies,
Love is calling me
Back to the pagan paradise.

Palm trees gently sway,
I see a pale moonrise,
Then in dreams I stray
Back to a pagan paradise.

I see someone
Strolling with no one,
Waiting for the moonbeam's play,
Where love started,
The night we parted,
I said I'd come back someday.

There I'd gladly be,
Though fate between us lies,
Love keeps calling me
Back to a pagan paradise.

I see someone
Strolling with no one,
Waiting for the moonbeam's play,
Where love started,
The night we parted,
I said I'd come back someday.

There I'd gladly be,
Though fate between us lies.
Love keeps calling me
Back to a pagan paradise.
