In the last hours of a sunset rendezvous
That carries me from you.
Got some lead-free in my tank.
I'm bound for the mainland.
Island in the city, cut by a cold sea.
Groundswell of humanity.
As I climb Glen Shiel
Who drove their bargain south again.
Five sisters of Kintail

People moving on an ocean.
Storm-lashed on the high-rise,
Blown like silent laughter.
Take my heart and take my brawn.
Set my brain to cruise.
I'm fresh from the out-world

Seems a long time, long time, long time gone by.
She calls from the hill, yeah,

To heaven's door
On muted diesel roar.
And there's a flame in her eyes,

People moving on an ocean.
Storm-lashed on the high-rise
Blown like silent laughter.
In my mainland blues.
