The Islander

Text písně The Islander

An old man by a seashore 
At the end of day 
Gazes the horizon 
With seawinds in his face 
Tempest-tossed island 
Seasons all the same 
Anchorage unpainted 
And a ship without a name 


Sea without a shore for the banished one unheard 
He lightens the beacon, light at the end of world 
Showing the way lighting hope in their hearts 
The ones on their travels homeward from afar 


This is a long-forgotten 
Light at the end of the world 
Horizon crying 
The tears he left behind long ago 


The albatross is flying 
Making him daydream 
The time before he became 
One of the world`s unseen 
Princess in the tower 
Children in the fields 
Life gave him it all: 
An island of the universe 


Now his love`s a memory 
A ghost in the fog 
He sets the sails one last time 
Saying farewell to the world 
Anchor to the water 
Seabed far below 
Grass still in his feet 
And a smile beneath his brow 


This is a long-forgotten 
Light at the end of the world 
Horizon crying 
The tears he left behind long ago


So long ago


So long ago


This is a long-forgotten 
Light at the end of the world 
Horizon crying 
The tears he left behind so long ago


So long ago
