Island Lady

Island Lady

So you took the tide this morning,
Turned your face towards the World,
Never thought you had it in you, girl,
Never took you at your word.

And I walked the beach this morning,
The beach that we walked yesterday,
And where our footprints merged together
The jealous waves washed them away.

Island lady, don’t betray me,
Won’t you sail away with me?

And now I’m washed up on your island,
A piece of driftwood on your shore,
Just waiting for the tide to turn for me,
Bring you back to me once more.

Island lady, don’t betray me,
Won’t you sail away with me?

And now the sound lies in between us,
And my words will be my boat,
And I will raise my sail of blood-red silk,
And I will set sail for your coast.

Island lady, don’t betray me,
Won’t you sail away with me?
Island lady, don’t betray me,
Won’t you sail?
