  • Midnight on the water
    I saw the ocean's daughter
    Walking on a wave's chicane
    Staring as she called my name

    No, I can't get it out of my head
    Now my old world is gone for dead
    'Cos I can't get it out of my head

The dream that came through a million years
That lived on through all the tears, it came to Xanadu…

    the love that we came to know
    They call it Xanadu

    And now, open your eyes and see

    We are in Xanadu
    A million lights are dancing and there you are, a shooting star
    An everlasting world and you're here with me, eternally
    Xanadu

    you needed the world to know
    They are in Xanadu
    The dream that came through a million years
    That lived on through all the tears, it came to Xanadu
