lyrics

I was stuck in no man's land
Feet stuck in the sand
My eyes were wandering from the shore

Soon I looked out to the sea
Made a discovery
That I wasn't all on my own

Oh no
My world was on fire
But you taught me to swim
Man made desire a will to fit in

Calculating day by day
How things have come to change
Since I first left my island for you

My world through a stranger's eyes
Brought me to stranger tides
A brand new version of the truth

All alone left to survive
Soul didn't recognise the truth
When I laid eyes on you

Softer than the water's touch
Faster than the rush of floods
No fear but that of losing you

Calculating day by day
How things have come to change
Since I first left my island for you

My world through a stranger's eyes
Brought me to stranger tides
A brand new version of the truth

Oh no
My world was on fire
But you taught me to swim
Man made desire a will to fit in

Calculating day by day
How things have come to change
Since I first left my island for you

My world through a stranger's eyes
Brought me to stranger tides
A brand new version of the truth

The may say no man is an island
But I know that's not true
Were were both islands
You know you know you know you know
'Til tectonic plates moved

Calculating day by day
How things have come to change
Since I first left my island for you
