Jimmy Buffett – Back To The Island lyrics

Now the day is done
And I sit alone and think of you girl
What would I do without you in my life

Wonderin' if you love me or
Just playing a fool of me.
Well I hope you understand
I just had to go back to the island

And watch the sun go down
Listen to the sea roll in
I'll be thinkin' of you
And how it might've been
Listen to the nightbird cry
Watch the sun set die
Well I hope you understand
I just had to go back to the island

Threaded in my heart
Tears are falling down
I know down in my soul
I'm really gonna miss you

Caan't end this way
For all the games we've played.
So I hope you understand
I just had to go back to the island

And watch the sun go down
Listen to the sea roll in
I'll be thinkin' of you
And how it might've been
Listen to the nightbird cry
Watch the sun set die
Well I hope you understand
I just had to go back to the island

And watch the sun go down
Listen to the sea roll in
I'll be thinkin' of you
And how it might've been
Listen to the nightbird cry
Watch the sun set die
Well I hope you understand
I just had to go back to the island

I hope you understand
I just had to go back to the island

    The person in this song is lamenting the fact that the relationship between him and the girl that he loves seems to have come to an end because he told her he wanted to go "Back to the Island", which can mean either a literal island or, more likely, be a metaphor meaning that needed some solitude for a while and she seems to have not taken it well when he told her that.
    He feels bad and is hoping that he can get her to understand so that their love won't have to come to a rough ending, even though that seems to have already happened.
