I'll be the madness that carries you away
I'll be the sadness to light your darkest day
I'll be the desert island where you can be free
I'll be the vulture you can catch and eat

Desert island, love is all around
Desert island, where you can laugh aloud
Desert island, everywhere's a beach
Desert island, that's what I wanna be

We'll develop muscles from cracking coconuts
Let our clothing drop off, feel each other's butts
Start a better country where we can get things done
Make a fortune turning sand to silicon

Desert island, love is all around
Desert island, where you can laugh aloud
Desert island, everywhere's a beach
Desert island, that's what I wanna be

While we're still holding on
Counting days until we're gone
Can we spend some time alone
In our free love zone?

Desert island, love is all around
Desert island, where you can laugh aloud
Desert island, everywhere's a beach
Desert island, that's what I wanna be

Desert island, desert island
Desert island, desert island
