Lyrics:
Now the day is gone
And I sit alone and think of you girl
What can I do without you in my life

Wonderin' if you love me or
just makin a fool of me.
Well I hope you understand
I just had to go back to the island

Chorus:
And watch the sun go down
Hear the sea roll in
I'll be thinkin' of you
And how it might've been
Hear the nightbird cry
Watch the sun set down
Well I hope you understand
I just had to go back to the island

For all the sunny skies
It's rainin in my heart
I know down in my soul
I'm really gonna miss you

But it can't end this way
For all the games we've played.
Well I hope you understand
I just had to go back to the island

Chorus
