Lyrics: ISLANDS Took a ferry to the island Sunspots dancing like stars Pointed out priests in pigtails Caught between bikinis and guitars Reached the island just at sunset Saw the villages bathed in light From the deck we smelt the fires Heard donkeys chase the ghosts of night Oh babe, what a feeling Standing on a crystal stair Oh babe, swear I’m reeling, Become a god drunk on air Left the ferry at the dockside Found a room with white washed walls Women in black crossed the courtyard Mint and sage perfumed the hall Spent the evening under a full moon Soaking squid in cold white wine You said you felt like an alien Come home for the very first time In the dark of that white-washed room On a bed of lavender sheets We were held by the rhythm of the ocean And the spray coming off the beach Oh, Lord, there’s joy in tasting Honey and salt baked by sun Islands where the cost of living Is low and high enough for everyone #audio #Rock #Jazz #Folk #Reggae
