Steve Boller – Sitting On An Island lyrics

I'm watching a movie of mistakes in my head,
And every single day I'm just trying to fix them,
It's easy to lie but it's hard to forget about it,
I've burned so many bridges now I'm sitting on an island

All those times I ran away
And didn't have any words to say, but now they are all adding up in my head

Everyone knows
That it's no fun
Being alone
I'm dreaming of someone
Worth the wait, that I won't push away

The girl of my dreams comes along and teases my heart,
I don't know what to say and no I don't know where to start,
With a wink of her eye my lack of reply becomes worse,
She won't be the last one that I let slip away or the first,

I try but I can't reply,
And my lack of reply is a lie, sigh, a lie by omission


I think I am closer
I change my mind
And lose my composure
It's sad to say, but I know I will push you away
