lyrics

Grecian Isle

I want to live on a lonely hill
on an ancient Grecian Isle
Surrounded by the hills and the sea
with the sails glistening in my eyes

I want to drink wine from noon to dawn
and lay my head in the sand
Forget about this busy life, just for a while

Cut like glass and hewn of sand, yellow as the blistering sun
Dark eyed girls dance in the streets, a new life just begun, just begun

I want to sleep on an abandoned beach
‘neith the ruins of a fishing boat
I want to find another name
and get lost in my dreams for a while

I want to taste the lips of fire
and be engulfed in your smoke
I want to meet my match on a Grecian Isle

Cast the nets and hope for a catch
Old hands weary from a thousand years
Bring ‘em home when the cross winds blow
Or you’re going home alone
