Island Lyrics

Artist: Jimmy Buffett
Album: Coconut Telegraph

By: Jimmy Buffett, David Loggins
1980
For Jane
Island I see you in the distance
I feel that your existence
Is not unlike my own
Island they say no man is like you
They say you stand alone
Sometimes I feel that way too
It's the need for love

Heart and soul accompaniment
Seems to make me different from you

Chorus:
Well I tried to book passage, but you have no ports
And I tried to sail in, but your wind and waters
Tore my sails and broke all my oars

Island I see you in the moonlight
Silhouettes of ships in the night
Just make me want that much more
Island I see you in all of my dreams
Maybe someday I'll have the means to reach your distant shores
When the need for love

Heart and soul accompaniment
No longer makes me different from you

Chorus:
Well I tried to build bridges
But they all fell down
And I've taken to the air on wings of silver
But I always hit the ground

(instrumental)

Well I tried to book passage, but you have no ports
And I tried to sail in, but your wind and waters
Tore my sails and broke all my oars

Island I see you in the moonlight
Silhouettes of ships in the night
Just make me want that much more
