Hollies – My Island lyrics

(Clarke / Sylvester / Hicks)
Sailing on a summer breeze, going back to my island
Nearly done my time, my life will be mine once again
The distant past so far behind and I hope there hasn't been many changes
'cos I haven't seen my island for such a long time

Oh oh oh oh, I want to breathe the air that's free
Oh oh oh oh, I want to feel the warm sand beneath my feet
And the sun on my face, yeah
Oh oh oh oh Oh oh oh oh

Couldn't say goodbye through no fault of mine to my loved ones
But sent a message through from my first port of call
I was pressed into time by the men from the line
They didn't tell me where I was going
And I haven't seen my island in such a long time

Oh oh oh oh, I've sailed upon the seven seas
Oh oh oh oh, you wouldn't believe the things I've seen
When I get home I'll tell you
Oh oh oh oh Oh oh oh oh

Verse 2

Verse 1

Oh oh oh oh Oh oh oh oh
