Tequila Sunrise (Lyrics) - Poem by Leah Ayliffe

My father went to the mall
to buy us rum and vodka.

Dipping my toes in the rooftop poolside, panoramic view of Panama City skyline

The nightlife, casinos, and bright lights
Shining under our heels at the Bling Club, Hard Rock Hotel paradise

Rum and coke smooth my throat
Margaritas from a stranger, proven to be danger.

Dj playing to my swaying hips
Tell me I'm a star, I shine

I'm in love with the whole world
I'm in love with the whole world
Will you love it with me, darling?
I'm in love with the whole world
I'm in love with the whole world
Will you love me too?

Dancing wild on the beach, hot nights
Dazzled by a light show in the sky, happiness is not a dream

Sand angels, we are free and unafraid
The liberty of running barefoot into the oceans dark embrace

4am and the night is young
Making magic moments come
Never ending, twirling into dawn
Hit me with those sunshine beams


I'm in love with the whole world
I'm in love with the whole world
Will you love it with me, darling?
I'm in love with the whole world
I'm in love with the whole world
Will you love me too?

Sunrise tequila, the toxic choice in mind
As a local holds my waist on the dance floor
Rocking side to side

A Colombian man takes my hand,
Salsa our way into the night
Telling me stories of the world and I get starry eyed
Edinburgh, the Scottish hills, a shared love of mine

Feeling tight, the air of death by my side

I'm in love with the whole world
I'm in love with the whole world
Will you love it with me, darling?
I'm in love with the whole world
I'm in love with the whole world
Will you love me too?

I'm in love with the whole world
I'm in love with the whole world
Will you love it with me, darling?
I'm in love with the whole world
I'm in love with the whole world
Will you love me too?

    Panama City, Flaorida... no, no cassinos
    Panama City, Panama... could be
    Best three drinks
    1. Frozen Margaritas no salt
    2. Tequila sunrise
    3. Black Russian double
    Best Party town... Rio de Janerio (Sand, sea, and Cariocas) (Report) Reply
