lyrics

THE ISLANDER

Take me to the bay in darkness
Through this month of nights in one
They burned oil in the starless
Pitch of night, awaiting
And you’re born
Dark gave way to dawn

They said you were a pearl
Found there on the earth
As you grew to a girl
And she faded from your life

And the current towed
You by its side
And the water sowed
A vision in your mind

Go to the bend
Know where it ends

She’s an islander and she longs to be
To be in the world she used to be
When she was a girl and she left to see
To see this world that we all see

The hares ran in the wood,
No faster than your mind
Could carry you away
To the world you longed to find

And you chose to hide
In the mountain’s edge
‘Til it burned
A vision in your head
Go to descend
Know where it ends

She’s an islander and she longs to be
To be in the world she used to be
When she was a girl and she left to see
To see this world that we all see

And they rose
Until we heard them roar

And they burned
Until they could burn no more
