I will live my life as a lobsterman's wife
On an island in the blue bay
He will take care of me, he will smell like the sea
And close to my heart he'll always stay

I will bear three girls all with strawberry curls
Little Ella and Nelly and Faye
While I'm combing their hair, I will catch his warm stare
On our island in the blue bay

Far away, far away, I want to go far away
To a new life on a new shore line
Where the water is blue and the people are new
To another island, in another life

There's a boy next to me and he never will be
Anything but a boy at the bar
And I think he's the tops, he's where everything stops
How I love to love him from afar

When he walks right past me
Then I finally see on this bar stool I can't stay
So I'm taking my frown to a far distant town
On an island in the blue bay

Far away, far away, I want to go far away
To a new life on a new shore line
Where the water is blue and the people are new
To another island, in another life

If I wanna go far away, away, away
I wanna go far away, away, away
I wanna go far away, away

Where the water is blue and the people are new
To another life, to another life
To another shore line, in another life

    Its the story of my life. I am getting married. And I am truely in love with someone else. I want to go far away from the life I am currently living. I don't just want to love him from a far. I want another life with the one I truely love. Far away from anyone that I would ever know. All I need is him. But ever night I take my frown back to my public life, and leave my smile in the dark.
