Kajagoogoo – Islands lyrics

Off shore, it's either sink or swim
I saw, what kind of boat I'm in
Much more, although I can't forget you,
The light is growing dim
Feet are falling on foreign ground
Luck in short supply
I feel like Crusoe before him found
All gone pass me by
I walk on beach, I sleep on sand, I walk in water
Salty sea, got a hold on me
Daylight come, be it now or never


Lost on some horizon
No man is an Island
No man is an Island
No man is an Island

Jackdaw, he don't bother me
Wild boar, he keep me company
Panther, my only consolation in my calamity
Lady Luck or Lady Death must pass this shore some day
I hope she's coming, I ain't seen her yet
Come to take my soul away
Light my fire on top of hill
So all the ships can see that I'm a prisoner here


Lost on some horizon, no man is an Island
Banished here to prolong my silence
No man is an Island
No man is an Island
No man is an Island
