Fantastic place
Marillion Lyrics


Islands are mountain-tops

It's always a struggle
To let somebody go
It's a natural desire
To own your lover, I know

And you can screw a man down
Until he takes to drinking
He'll give you all of his money
You still won't know what he's thinking

Take me to the fantastic place
Keep the rest of my life away
Take me to the fantastic place
Keep the rest of my life away

Take me to the island
I'll watch the rain over your shoulder
The streetlights in the water
The moment outside of real life

I never could dream while I was sleeping
Put your arms around my soul
And take it dancing..

Take me to the fantastic place
Keep the rest of my life away
Take me to the fantastic place
Keep the rest of my life away

Take me to the island
I'll watch the rain over your shoulder
The streetlights on the wet stone
The moment outside of real life

Say you understand me
And I will leave myself completely
Forgive me if I stare
But I can see the island behind your tired, troubled eyes

Take me to the island
I'll tell you all I never told you
The boy I never showed you
More than I gave in my life
Take me by the hand
You'll either kill me or you'll save me
Take me to the island
Show me what might be real life

About as good as it gets! The "uncool" Marillion at there very best! People don't know what they are missing, the best band you have never heard of - brilliant!

Carol Hartung

I dont know, I think they're pretty cool...

James Hurst

Yes, and one of the best guitarists in the world, ever, Rothery defines Marillion past and present, with his signature play.

Arun Sabherwal

David Gilmour, Steve Rothery, Andy Latimer are the top 🎸tone masters

Henkan

Rothery is amazing; the only issue I have with his playing is his frenetic vibrato in live recordings. He manages to hold back in the studio though.

Rui Calado

and that Squire guitar,plays like fire.

Gordon Dodds

One of the most underrated guitarist, Steve Rothery is a wizard

Martin ladurner

If I hear the sound of Marillion, it's like being in another world. Great song!

Peter Robinson

I know it's a cliche, but words cannot do justice to this piece of music. Wow

Aido g

One of the greatest songs to have entered my life.
Thank you Marillion!!
