Island I see you in the distance
I feel that your existence
Is not unlike my own
Island they say no man is like you
They say you stand alone
Sometimes I feel that way too

Is it the need for love?
Heart and soul accompaniment
That seems to make me different from you

Well I tried to book passage, but you have no ports
And I tried to sail in but your wind and waters
Tore my sails and broke my oars.

Island I see you in the moonlight
Silhouettes of ships in the night
Just make me long that much more
Island I see you in all of my dreams
But I'm a man with no means to reach your distant shore

When the need for love
Heart and soul accompaniment
That seems to make me different from you

I've tried to build bridges
But they all fell down
I've taken to the air on wings of silver
But always hit the ground

Well I tried to book passage, but you have no ports
And I tried to sail in but your wind and waters
Tore my sails and broke my oars.

Island I see you in the moonlight
Silhouettes of ships in the night
Just make me long that much more
