Islands, from the first time we saw
We could wait for this moment, like rocks on the shore
We can never be closer, somehow
For the moment that lasts, is this moment now

When the night's on fire, will you keep the candlelight burning?
Hold on to your heart's desire
(When the night's on fire)
When you see one bird into the wind, another one's turning
And the two can fly much higher

We are islands but never too far
We are islands
And I need your light tonight
And I need your light tonight

We are islands but never too far
We are islands
And I need your light tonight
And I need your light tonight

Islands, never been to before
And we climb so high to where the wild birds soar
There's a new path that we found just today
I was lost in the forest and you showed me the way

When the night's on fire, oh, will you keep the candlelight burning?
Hold on to your heart's desire
(When the night's on fire)
When you see one bird into the wind, another one's turning
And the two can fly much higher

We are islands but never too far
We are islands
And I need your light tonight
And I need your light tonight
...

We are islands but never too far
We are islands
And I need your light tonight
And I need your light tonight
...
