Chorus:
Night and stars above that shine so bright,
The myst`ry of their fading light,
That shines upon our caravan.
Sleep upon my shoulder as we creep,
Across the sand so I may keep,
The mem`ry of our caravan.
This is so exciting,
You are so inviting,
Resting in my arms,
As I thrill to the magic charms.
Of you beside me here beneath the blue,
My dream of love is coming true,
Within our desert caravan.
