Alice Phoebe Lou Girl On An Island Lyrics

There once was an island

Further than any boat had reached

And she sat there in silence

Alone but at ease

A spell was upon her

Her body could never leave

But her mind would travel multitudes

You and I could not conceive

When the night sky’s your only friend

When you’re tired of playing pretend

When the ground under your feet

Seems like no more than a dream

And you’re in over your head

And your instincts are not fed

Well, you’re not free

You don’t feel free

There’s no time to be

On that island with me

Far away from the city

From the litter and poverty

From the fast paced monotony
