Dan McCafferty Island In The Sun Lyrics

Last updated:

Captain o Captain
Only five miles ahead
There lies an island
Only five miles ahead
White hills and beaches
Something green in the blue
Captain o captain
So it all has come true
There's an island in the sun
Come together everyone
Ahead lies an island

Now it's September
We've been sailing so long
One summer one winter
Is this where we belong
Seems only a footstep
Into the setting sun
Our journey has ended
Or has it just begun
There's an island in the sun
Come together everyone
Ahead lies an island

There's an island in the sun
Come together everyone
Ahead lies an island

There they were...the islands. Big ones, small ones, beautiful ones
and wasted ones . . . But wherever they went, wherever they looked,
wherever they put their feet...only uninhabitable, exploited, devastated
sands. . . They encountered everything they meant to leave behind. War...
poison... degeneration . . . Love died a long time ago . . .
