Gary Fjellgaard Song Lyrics > Contenders

An Islander

An Islander an Islander
Right to my very bone
I prefer an island world
I live on an island home
I live on an island home

An island could be paradise
Filled with mystery
An island could be lapped by lakes
Or shrouded by the sea
For some itís the motion
The ocean shifts and breathes
A lake can be a blessing
But the ocean sets you free

Some folks love the city
They thrive on the energy
Some folks love the flatland
Big sky and wide prairie
For some itís the mountains
When you move on towards the sea
Your getting to me Iím an Islander
And thatís where I long to be

They say that on the mainland
Folks talk about being bored
But Islanders still donít know
The meaning of the word
An Islander an Islander
Right to my very bone
I prefer my island world
I prefer my island girl
Iím the oyster sheís the pearl
We live on an island home
We live on an island home
