In 1999 I travelled on a sailing boat from Barcelona to Martinique. The music came to mind while crossing the Atlantic Ocean. On my return to London my friend Mike Williams helped me out finishing the arrangement and lyrics and the song was born.

 

HOLA SEÑORITA, DO YOU WANNA DANCE WITH ME?

AM I LIFTED BY A SUNNY BREEZE?

AM I FLOATING ON A DEEP BLUE SEE?

THE WATER IS COOL, THE SUN IS HOT

DREAMING OF A SPANISH BAR

SHE TOOK ME AWAY IN THE OCEAN

IT’S SUCH A DIFFERENT WORLD THAN HERE ON LAND

THE MOST AMAZING DUSK I’VE EVER SEEN

OUR LIVES WERE MOVED UPON THE WAVES

HOLA SEÑORITA…

ARE YOU WITH ME OR AM I ALONE?

AM I SOMEWHERE I CAN CHARGE MY PHONE?

THE WATER IS COOL, THE SUN IS HOT

DREAMING OF A SPANISH BAR

SHE FILLED ME UP WITH THE NOTION

MY LIFE WOULD NEVER BE THE SAME AGAIN

TWO HEARTS THAT NEEDED EACH OTHER

WHIRLING LOVERS IN THE WIND

SHE TOOK ME AWAY IN THE OCEAN

IT’S SUCH A DIFFERENT LIFE THAN HERE ON LAND

THE MOST AMAZING DUSK I’VE EVER SEEN

OUR LIVES WERE MOVED UPON THE WAVES
