Lyrics: Samson



David Gilmour in Concert

On An Island

Would this do
To make it all right
While sleep has taken you
Where I'm out of sight

I'll make my getaway
Time on my own
Search for a better way
To find any way home
To your smile

Waiting days and days
On this fight
Always down and up
Half the night

Hopeless to reminisce
Through the dark hours
We'll only sacrifice
What time will allow us
You're sighing ... sighing

All alone
Through you're right here
Now it's time to go
From your sad stare

Make my getaway
Time on my own
Leaving's a better way
To find my way home
To your smile ... smile
