The Island
Back to the Island
Leon Russell

(this song fades in slowly)

The Island

It's a place where life is simple
a place where all is true and pure.
the peace and rest it offers
is a very special allure.

It reminds us of what is important
It reminds of something grand
It speaks to us succinctly
when we walk barefoot in the sand.

No appointments, no deadlines
no conference calls or bosses.
no rush hour traffic
no games, no wins and no losses.

It renews our spirit and refreshes the mind
to  enjoy a day without a plan.
Immersed and soaked in the sun and sand
how nice it is to get back to the island.
