Story Behind the Song

A not so young couple finally realizes their dream of escaping to an idyllic island in the tropics and discover it is all they have hoped for and more

Lyrics

HEAVEN ON A TROPIC SHORE

Finally, we?re here together
Paradise, what could be better?
We have found our island in the sun.
Tropic breeze upon our faces
We have found our own oasis
Oh, we thought this day would never come.
I am here with you
You are here with me
An enchanted place
In this world by the sea.
Heaven on a tropic shore
This is what we?ve waited for ////

Bathing in this lovely ocean
We have found our magic potion
Underneath a sky of endless blue.
I?m the girl from Ipanema
You?re the only boy I dream of
Now, our long awaited rendezvous.
With the wind in our hair
We?re as free as the air
On this sunlit isle
Not a worry or care.
Heaven on a tropic shore
This is what we?ve waited for ////

Caro mio, dearest friend
We are at the rainbow?s end
Sparkling waters kiss the golden sand.
Heaven on a tropic shore
This is what we?ve waited for
We?re together in this wonderland.
I am here with you
You are here with me
On this sunlit isle
We?re so easy and free.
Heaven on a tropic shore
This is what we?ve waited for ////
