Allman Brothers Band – Island Lyrics

Sometimes it seems like yesterday

Other times more than a million years

Oh little girl sweeter than an angel

When I think of her I laugh,

And drown in my own tears

You draw your first breath so close to me

Now we’ve been apart for years and years

She can wash the land away, tides turning everyday,

All I really came to say is

I still love you my sweet Island

Maybe times will someday build a bridge for us

Somewhere father down the line; I know

But for you this;

to show you who’s on my mind

She can wash the land away, tides turning everyday,

All I really came to say is

I still love you my sweet Island

Whatever they may say about my silence

Remember I’m an Island too

We’re connected by more than an ocean

My blood runs in you

She can wash the land away, tides turning everyday,

All I really came to say is

I still love you my sweet Island
