You can leave the island but you can't leave my love
And you can't take back what you gave away
You can leave the island but you can't leave my heart
'cause this memory remains

Of the moonlit nights
When the stars were high
We could see Savannah shine across the waves
We could dance along the shore
And take our time for more
And all along I know our hearts will say

You can leave the island but you can't leave my love
And you can't take back what you gave away
You can leave the island but you can't leave my heart
'cause the memory remains

And I loved you
From the moment that we met I'm thinkin' of you
And I never will forget...
How the feelin' came a reelin',
So easy to be ... so free

On a moonlit night
When the stars are high
We can see Savannah shine across the waves
Now I know you must move on...
But I'll never be alone
As long as this memory remains

And I've loved you
From the moment that we met I'm thinkin' of you
And I never will forget...
How the feelin' came a reelin',
So easy to be... so free

You can leave the island but you can't leave my love
And you can't take back what you gave away
You can leave the island but you can't leave my heart
'cause the memory remains...
This feelin' rarely ever fades...
And how I wish,
How I wish, how I wish you'd stay
