Bonnie Tyler – Islands lyrics

(Mike Oldfield)
Producer for Bonnie: Mike Oldfield
Recorded in 1987 for Mike Oldfield's album 'Islands', Lyrics taken from careful listening.

Islands
From the first time we saw
We could wait for this moment
Like rocks on the shore
We could never be closer somehow
For the moment that lasts
Is this moment now

When the night's on fire
Oh, will you keep the candle-light burning
Hold onto your heart's desire
(Hearts on fire)
When you see one bird into the wind
Another one's turning
And the two can fly much higher
(Higher)

Chorus:
We are Islands
But never too far
We are islands
And I need your light tonight
And I need your light tonight...(x2)

Islands
Never been to before
And we climb so high
To where the wild birds soar
There's a new path
That we found just today
I was lost in the forest
And you showed me the way

When the night's on fire
Oh, will you keep the candle-light burning
Hold onto your heart's desire
(Hearts on fire)
When you see one bird into the wind
Another one's turning
And the two can fly much higher
(Higher)

Chorus x 4
