on an island

by ian harvey



i'm currently writing a few new songs all revolving around the ocean...my intention is to upload a new song every couple of weeks until there is enough for a whole album and then all of these songs will be pulled together as a complete album...


in my minds eye
i'm leaving the shore, 'cross the sea

on the wings of a gull
i'm heading to where i should be

off in the distance
through mist and through spray juts a rock

it may not look much
but it's where i will sit and take stock

on an island

on the cliff i will perch
the roar of the surf in my ears

and i'll stare out to sea
though my eyes sting from salt in my tears

i'll remember the first i took to the air
how i soared

but the years have come tumbling down
and i'll fly no more

on an island
