Lyrics

All the world is waking up today
Finally the winter has gone away
The ice on my heart is melted by your touch
Open up my soul and let you fill me up

Finally I'm feeling so alive
For tonight, it feels so right

Tiger Lily, growing wild
Your radiant beauty caught my eye
Don't ever hide your wild eyes
Don't let tonight pass you bye

Now along the waters edge we walk
And silently convey the feelings in our hearts

All my life I've waited for tonight
And here you are, in my arms

Tiger Lily, growing wild
Your radiant beauty caught my eye
Don't ever hide your wild eyes
The summertime has arrived
Come out tonight

And dance with me among a million fire flies
I've waited for you all the winter of my life
I held your love in my heart
The endless summer sleeping in my arms

Tiger Lily, growing wild
Your radiant beauty caught my eye
Don't ever hide your wild eyes
The summertime has arrived
Don't let tonight pass you bye
