Back To The Island Lyrics

Now the day is gone and I sit alone and think of you, girl
What could I do without you in my life?
Wonderin' if you love me, or just makin' a fool of me.
Well I hope you understand I just had to go back to the island

Chorus:

And watch the sun go down (sit and watch the sun go down)
Hear the sea roll in (listen to the sea roll in)
But I'll be thinking of you (yes, and I'll be thinking of you)
And how it might have been (thinking how it might have been)
Hear the night birds cry (listen to the night birds cry)
Watch the sunset die (sit and watch the sunset die)
Well I hope you understand I just had to go back to the island

For all of the sunny sky, It's raining in my heart,
I know, down in my soul, I'm really gonna miss you,
But it had to end this way, for all the games we played,
Well I hope you understand, I just had to go back to the island

And watch the sun go down (sit and watch the sun go down)
Hear the sea roll in (listen to the sea roll in)
But I'll be thinking of you (yes, and I'll be thinking of you)
And how it might have been (thinking how it might have been)
Hear the night birds cry (listen to the night birds cry)
Watch the sunset die (sit and watch the sunset die)
Well I hope you understand I just had to go back to the island

Sit and watch the sun go down (Oh yeah!)
Listen to the sea roll in (Sea roll in)
Yes, and I'll be thinking of you (Always thinking of you)
(What about me?) Thinking how it might have been
Listen to the night birds cry
Sit and watch the sunset die
Well I hope you understand I just had to go back to the island
