Living On The Island

This song is by Chris de Burgh and appears on the album The Getaway (1982) and on the compilation album Ultimate Collection (Remastered) (2005).

Day by day they drink and dream
Old men staring out to sea
From the island, living on the island

And down in the harbour, it's a show
Watching all the people as they come and go
On the island, living on the island

And up in the mountains, they're all right
Tasting the first of the summer wine
On the island, living on the island
I wanna feel that sunshine in my heart
And let it blow my worries away
I wanna spend a night in the ocean, with her

That little lady lover who's in love with me
Prettiest little lady that I've ever seen
On the island, living on the island

Ooh, and when I finally sail away
I know for sure, I'll be back some day
On the island, living on the island
On the island, living on the island
I wanna feel that sunshine on my back
On the island, living on the island
On the island, we'll be living on the island
I wanna feel that wind blow in my hair
Living on the island...
