Lyrics:

Sun touches earth like a lover's kiss
Sky and ocean are joined in bliss
Allís well and nothing can be amiss
And I know that Eden was just like this

Ah woman and man, that make happiness grow
Standing hand in hand
As it was in Eden, new life revealin'
My heart is pleading for long ago.

Lovers were meant to live heart to heart
Not created to be apart
From the very start, it was planned for bliss
Back in Eden and Eden was just like this.

Nobody fighting and no one kill
Everybody loving and always will
No strife, no storm, no animosity
Like paradise it will always be
