  • I've wasted some years
    Looking for the things that matter
    Looking for the things that never appear
    ‘til they're done
    And they may never have been
    But that was just the beginning

    And I've longed for sometime
    Time I know that was mine
    Looking for you
    Looking for me
    Looking for a place in the world I could be

    And I saw you tonight
    In a light that could only be
    Once in a lifetime
    Now I know where I'm destined to go

    Meet me in Rio
    Meet me in Rio
    Where the fire shine
    in the dark night where the black lake and the morning
    Aren't more than a warning
    That life is either mystery or a mistake
    Meet me in Rio
    I'm yours

    Meet me in Rio
    Meet me in Rio
    Where the fire shine
    in the dark night where the black lake and the morning
    Aren't more than a warning
    That life is either mystery or a mistake
    Meet me in Rio
    I'm yours

    Meet me in Rio
    I'm yours
    Meet me in Rio
    Meet me in Rio
    Meet me in Rio
