Foreverland

Original version (4:01)

What are we looking for ?
A piece of heaven they say.
What are we looking for ?
It’s tricky to explain
But you won’t believe it until you’ve seen it.
Since I was a boy of fourteen
It’s been my plan
To find Foreverland.

There’s a tropical breeze
There’s a tropical breeze there
Blowing throughout the palm trees,
Blowing throughout the palm trees there,
Birds of paradise fly.
Birds of paradise fly.

What are we looking for ?
An island shrouded in mist.
What are we looking for ?
That’s if it does exist.
I know that the crew are dying of hunger
But I’m sure it can’t take much longer
Till we can
See Foreverland.

There’s a tropical breeze
There’s a tropical breeze there
Blowing throughout the palm trees,
Blowing throughout the palm trees there,
Birds of paradise fly.
Birds of paradise fly.

What are we looking for ?
You’re gonna like it, I swear.
What are we looking for ?
I’ll show you when we’re there.
It’s just round the headland, on the horizon.
Everybody thinks it’s all lies
Until they stand
On Foreverland.

Everybody thinks it’s all lies
Until they can
See Foreverland.
