lyrics

Back to the Island Again
by
Lorne Warr

I've traveled this highway from sea onto sea
Asked the wise about wisdom, they asked it of me
The one truth that I hold is my soul longs to be
Back on the island again

Chorus:

Home, goin' home
To arms around me and a place of my own
Where the sound of stillness sinks into the bone
Back to the island again

In the dark mystic forest my footsteps will wind
Along crystal rivers that wash away time
Down to an ocean where waves sing in rhyme
And call back to the island again

Chorus

I've watched the sea rise and I've watched the stars fall
I've gazed out in wonder at the beauty of all
But nothing compels like the hearts quiet call
To come back to the island again

Chorus

I've chased a slow sunset through a prairie of red
Crossed cold crooked mountains where the moon laid it's head
I'll take no more rest till I'm warm in my bed
Back on the island again

Chorus (x2)
