Cat Power – Islands lyrics

I want to rule the islands
And I want to rule the sea
But if you're not coming back
I will sleep eternally

I don't want no heavy diamonds
And pearls crush my teeth
I just want my sailor
To sail back to me

The captain has a treasure
Says I hold the key
But old mangroves
And sweet winds blow
Songs of you and me

I want to rule the islands
And I want to rule the sea
But if you're not coming back
I will sleep eternally
