Swinging Island.

I guess your soul went through a stage

your steamboat sailed at dawn

You’re hiding from the human race

just walking all alone


Nobody can carry you 

back where you once belonged

A disappointed brandet fool

blowed it and it’s gone



On a swinging Island

I’ll find you in the surf one day

don’t fade away

You still have a dream but no will to try

while life is rolling by 

On that swinging island the tide would sound

and I build my love around you

you’ll be an island too


It took a long time coming down here

hold on and take you place

We need to pick up some icecold beer

hang our heads and steel away


So if you close your eyes at night

remember I’ll be there

Waiting under the hazy moon

in my old easy chair
