Celtic Thunder lyrics : "The Island"

They say the skies of Lebanon are burning
Those mighty cedars bleedin' in the heat
They're showin' pictures on the television

Women and children dyin' in the street
And we're still at it in our own place
Still tryin' to reach the future through the past

Still tryin' to carve tomorrow from a tombstone...

But Hey! Don't listen to me! This wasn't meant to be no sad song .

We've heard too much of that before
Right now I only want to be here with you
'Till the mornin' dew comes falling

And I wanna take you to the island
And Trace your footprints in the sand
And in the evening when the sun goes down

We'll make love to the sound of the ocean

They're raisin' banners over by the markets

Whitewashing slogans on the shipyard walls
Witchdoctors praying for a mighty showdown
No way our holy flag is gonna fall

Up here we sacrifice our children
To feed the worn-out dreams of yesterday
And teach them dying will lead us into glory...


But Hey! Don't listen to me! 'Cause this wasn't meant to be no sad song .
I've sung too much of that before

Right now I only want to be here with you
Till the mornin' dew comes falling
And I wanna take you to the island

And trace your footprints in the sand
And in the evening when there's no one around
We'll make love to the sound of the ocean


Now I know us plain folks don't see all the story
And I know this peace and love's just coppin' out

And I guess these young boys dyin' in the ditches
Is just what bein' free is all about
And how this twisted wreckage down on main street

Will bring us all together in the end
And we'll go marching down the road to freedom...
Freedom...

Freedom....
