lyrics

Lyrics :
Walking on the street, lost in a sea of people living
And walking on the beach, lost in a sea of sunlight beaming

If I could go to Rio de Janeiro,
I would say 'Oh thanks for having me,
flying me back home with wonder,
filling my heart with dreams and memories'

Walking round the town, hearing all the voices come from around the world
And the sound of a people praying to the Lord on the mountain

If I could go to Rio de Janeiro,
I would say 'Oh thanks for having me,
flying me back home with wonder,
filling my heart with dreams and memories'

I would say thanks for the rhythm and the music
I would say thanks for the fire and the magic
I was your guest, a travelling girl
But you'll stay with me as I walk this world

Say thanks for the moments shared,
For the passion, the dreams and the prayers,
Whatever my twist of fate will be
I'll have Rio in my heart with me

Walking on the street, walking to the beat of a people dancing,
Music in the heat, and we meet and we feast on the food of the land
