Chris de Burgh - Living on the island
Tekst en muziek: Chris de Burgh
(1982)






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 alright
Tasting the first of 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



Oh, and when I finally sail away
I know for sure, I’ll be back someday
On the island
Living on the island



On the island
Living on the island
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
On the island
Living on the island



On the island
Living on the island
And I’m coming back someday
On the island
Living on the island
