Back To The Island

This song is by Dougie MacLean and appears on the album Snaigow (1980).

He can still see her alone and so still
Lost in her dreaming and quietly smiling at him
Through the coloured lights and waiting until
All the people had gone so she could go to him

But he's going to fly away, fly back to the island
And he's going to fly away, fly back to the island

The days are so troubled the nights are so cold
He thinks of a flower but the vision is so hard to hold
But in every heart there's a garden we're told
And as he chases dreams his flowers grow old

But he's going to fly away, fly back to the island
And he's going to fly away, fly back to the island

Back in his room he has finished the song
Fought with the sadness and is ready for the day that will come
And as he drifts away he knows he will smile
For there in the shadows he knows he will see her

But he's going to fly away, fly back to the island
And he's going to fly away, fly back to the island
