O love is never easy
It's almost always out of your way
It's not the path of least resistance
It's not some words you get to say
It's a stream running up a mountain
It's a wave rolling out from the shore
Wish I could say I never felt that way before

I have a friend who's lonely
She is chasing after her dreams
And she is the one and only
One who knows how hard it could be

Chorus:

There's a treasure on her island
Buried in the city of news
Wish I could say we didn't have that much to lose

Yeh one friend tried to end it
He could not see the good in his life
In his mirror or his pocket
And his hopes had come down like a knife

It's a stream running up a mountain
It's a wave rolling out from the shore
Wish I could say I never felt that way before
There's a treasure on these islands
