Young The Giant – Islands lyrics

Five days
Near your island
Off the coast
I know
Five ways
You were my lover
Off the tide
In rhyme
Oh, all in the glow I'll find you waiting
Oh, has it been so long now
Oh, I thought you knew that I'd be coming
The way you move, a foreign groove, at night

I could never
I could never hold you

Watch it rise up where you hide your pearls
Feel it pile up where you cast those stones you wear
When no one's home, do they feel cold on your bones
All the years I miss your warmth
Have you missed my warmth?
On your island
