Island Lyrics

Artist: Gerry Rafferty
Album: City to City

Wake up my love, the sun is shinin€™ out there, blue sky up above
It€™s a brand new day, let€™s walk outside and let that breeze blow all our cares away.

You know that way back there in that city life
We€™ve been strangers for so long
Now that I feel like I know you again
I want to stay.

So long ago (yeah), we had a love so warm and bright when we had just begun
That was my last dream, since then I€™ve watched the rest crumble one by one.

Since we€™ve been runnin€™ silent yeah it€™s felt so right
It€™s gettin€™ closer now everyday
Now that I feel like I know you again
I want to stay.

(sha la la sha la la)

You know that on my own I don€™t make it alone
I need someone who needs me
I only know that wherever you are
I want to be.

But from now on, we won€™t worry about a thing, yeah the past is gone
This is our last day (yeah), we€™re gonna make sweet love before we sail away.

(fade)
sha la la sha la la
