Island I see you in the distance
I feel that your existence
Is not unlike my own

Island they say no man is like you
They say you stand alone
Sometimes I feel that way too
Is it the need for love?

Heart and soul accompaniment
That seems to make me different from you

I've tried to build bridges
But they all fell down
I've taken to the air on wings of silver
But always hit the ground

Island I see you in all of my dreams
But I'm a man with no means to reach your distant shore
Island I see you in the moonlight
Silhouettes of ships in the night
Just make me long that much more
To be like you

Heart and soul accompaniment
That seems to make me different from you

I've tried to build bridges
But they all fell down
I've taken to the air on wings of silver
But always hit the ground

[Instrumental]
