Now the day is gone and I sit alone and think of you, girl
What can I do without you in my life?
I guess that our guessing game just had to end that way
The hardest one to lose of all the games we played

But the time is past for living in a dream world
Lying to myself can't make that scene
Of wondering 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

And watch the sun go down
(And watch the sun go down)
Hear the sea roll in
(Listen to the sea roll in)
But I'll be thinkin' of you
(Yes, and I'll be thinkin' of you)
And how it might have been
(Thinkin' 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

Well, all the fun has died, it's rainin' in my heart
I know down in my soul I'm really gonna miss you
But it had to end this way with all the game 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)
Then hear the sea roll in
(Listen to the sea roll in)
But I'll be thinkin' of you
(Yes, and I'll be thinkin' of you)
And how it might have been
(Thinkin' how it might have been)

Well, hear the night birds cry
(Listen to the night birds cry)
An' watch the sunset die
(Sit and watch the sunset die)
Well, I hope you understand
I just had to go back to the island

And watch 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 thinkin' of you
(Yes, and I'll be thinkin' of you)
And how it might have been
(Thinkin' 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

Watch [Incomprehensible]
(Sit and watch the sun go down)
[Incomprehensible]
(Listen to the sea roll in)
But I'll be thinkin' of you
(Yes, and I'll be thinkin' of you)
