Nightwish - The Islander Lyrics

An old man by a seashore
At the end of day
Gaze the horizon with
Seawinds in his face
Tempest-tossed island
Seasons all the same
Anchorage unpainted and
A ship without a name

Sea without a shore for the banished one unheard
He lightens the beacon light at the end of world
Showing the way lighting hope in their hearts
The ones in their travels homeward from afar

This is for long-forgotten light at the end of the world
Horizon crying the tears he left behind long ago

The albatross is flying, making him daydream
A time before he became one of the world's unseen
Princess in the tower, children in the field
Life gave him it all, an island of the universe

Now his love's a memory, a ghost in the fog
He sets the sails one last time, saying farewell to the world
Anchor to the water, seabed far below
Grass still in his feet and a smile beneath his brow

This is for long-forgotten light at the end of the world
Horizon crying the tears he left behind so long ago
