      About "Island"

      Lyrics for Jimmy Buffett - "Island"

      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

      Is it the need for love?
      Heart and soul accompaniment
      That seems to make me different from you

      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 my oars.

      Island I see you in the moonlight
      Silhouettes of ships in the night
      Just make me long that much more
      Island I see you in all of my dreams
      But I'm a man with no means to reach your distant shore

      When the need for love
      Heart and soul accompaniment
      That seems to make me different from you

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

      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 my oars.

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