I am an island underneath a setting sun
In an ocean that is churning
For all I know there might be nobody nearby
But still the world it keeps on turning

And when the sun goes down
It gets brighter in my heart somehow
I know know why this is
But it's what I want to know

Sometimes we start over and go solo
Are we looking for that summer home
Besides the sea and for the future

Since I left you I'm a gold balloon that wonders high
I'm waltzing through rainbows and showers
Taking lovers just might keep my tears at bay
But the dam will break at any hour

By candlelight you seem to deepen in your mysteries
Confusing forces are pulling me at the tides of these seas

Sometimes we start over and go solo
Are we looking for the ones we've hurt
To forgive us in the future
Sometimes we start over and go solo
No metaphors are needed from
This time onward in this song

And when the sun goes down
It gets brighter in my heart somehow
I don't know why this is
But it's what I'd like to know

Sometimes we start over and go solo
Are we looking for the ones we've hurt
Just to forgive us in the future

Sometimes we start over and just go solo
No metaphors are needed from
This time onwards in this song
