In the shade of a volcano

Written by: jon terry

My friend's all said I was crazy
When I fell for eastern charms
But they never felt your sweet breath
when your sleeping in my arms

My kin they tried to warn me
Rushed love will never last
But you can't hide from emotion
just because we had no past

So I ran straight to your home land
Built a home and learned your tongue
Left my Kin and western values
To be happy in the sun

But you dreamed of wealth and riches
So we crossed the mighty sea
To a world where nothing matters
And your gauged by your money

How I've longed for eastern sunshine
Where joy and peace is all that flowed
Making love in our bamboo home
In the shade of a volcano
