On an Island
David Gilmour Lyrics


Remember that night
White steps in the moonlight
They walked here too
Through empty playground, this ghosts' town
Children again, on rusting swings getting higher
Sharing a dream, on an island, it felt right

We lay side by side
Between the moon and the tide
Mapping the stars for a while

Let the night surround you
We're halfway to the stars
Ebb and flow
Let it go
Feel her warmth beside you

Remember that night
The warmth and the laughter
Candles burned
Though the church was deserted
At dawn we went down through empty streets to the harbor
Dreamers may leave, but they're here ever after

Let the night surround you
We're halfway to the stars
Ebb and flow
Let it go
Feel her warmth beside you.

Remember that night
White steps in the moonlight
They walked here too
Through empty playground, this ghosts town
Children again, on rusting swings getting higher
Sharing a dream, on an island, it felt right

We lay side by side
Between the moon and the tide
Mapping the stars for a while

Let the night surround you
We're halfway to the stars
Ebb and flow
Let it go
Feel her warmth beside you

Remember that night
The warmth and the laughter
Candles burned
Though the church was deserted
At dawn we went down
Through empty streets to the harbour
Dreamers may leave, but they're here ever after

Remember that night

White steps in the moonlight

They walked here too

Through empty playground, this ghosts' town

Children again, on rusting swings getting higher

Sharing a dream, on an Island, it felt right



We lay side by side

Between the moon and the tide

Mapping the stars for a while



Let the night surround you

We're halfway to the stars

Ebb and flow

Let it go

Feel her warmth beside you



Remember that night

The warmth and the laughter

Candles burned

Though the church was deserted

At dawn we went down through empty streets to the harbour

Dreamers may leave, but they're here ever after



Let the night surround you

We're halfway to the stars

Ebb and flow

Let it go

Feel her warmth beside you

Makes me think of the last vacation I took with my husband who passed away. We were in the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico, and this reminds me of the romantic days and nights there. Takes me back and feeling happy and loved again.

Ah the Mayans. Amazing people

One of the things that I admire most about Gilmour is his uncanny ability to place a single note from his guitar just where it belongs and make my eyes well up.

I like how you put that because it's so accurate. He really does have that gift.

This song makes my mind fly without using any drug. I immagine myself, on an hammock, in an island at night, with a sky full of stars and the black water in front of me, illuminated by light of the moon. Simply amazing. Thank you dad.
