Island Time

6 O’clock and I’m going nowhere
Traffic’s stopped and I’m thinking of her
Miles away
Somewhere it’s always yesterday

She’d laugh at me in my foreign car
Why don’t you walk, when nothing’s ever
far way
You can just go back to yesterday

But she’s on island time
3 hours ahead and one day behind
But she’s on island time
Three hours ahead and I’m one day behind

What’s the use she’d say in all your hurry
There’s nothing that can’t wait ‘til tomorrow
Anyway
It’s only just another day
Don’t think it’s you who keeps the world on turning
They’ll still be spinning
When you get back from yesterday
and tomorrows always
far away

But she’s on island time
3 hours ahead and one day behind
But she’s on island time
Three hours ahead and I’m one day behind

When I’m weary and the night is long
I think about her where its almost dawn
And I’m miles away
Beside her back in yesterday

The breeze is blowin’ but the oceans calm
Why am I waiting when the waters warm
And not far away
I can just go back to yesterday

But she’s on island time
3 hours ahead and one day behind
But she’s on island time
Three hours ahead and I’m one day behind
 

(REPEAT CHORUS X 2)
