Islands
Mike Oldfield Lyrics


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, 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.
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.
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.

You guys know how Genesis did prog stuff then did pop stuff later? Well, Mike was like that but on the same album. Lol.

I think this is my favorite MO album. Listened so many times at night to sleep very well back in the 90’s.

Kenneth Nymo

Bring big memories. One of the best album ever.

Coneman3

Just so dreamy, from his happy period. A nice contrast to first 4 albums.

17:44 - 18:20 While I love the entirety of Wind Chimes, I'm addicted to this little segment and wish it was longer.

Andy JS

Flying Start, Magic Touch and North Point are really fantastic songs.

Steven Haywood

I love the Wind Chimes part one, so much! What an anthem!
