This Island Earth


Calling all dreamers and optimistic fools
Don't let go of your dream make it now make it all come true
If you believe in a brighter day
I know we can find our way

To this island, in a starry ocean
Poetry in motion, this island earth
Spinnin' like a dancer, gravity is the answer
Rendezvous in the blue, this island earth


We don't know what's in store today
We can spread our wings and we can soar away
Or we can go like the dinosaurs, they say
The choice is ours to make


All this seems like yesterday
We can wake up one day and be history
Or stick around to unravel the mystery
Of how we came to be


On this island, in a starry ocean
Poetry in motion, this island earth
A beautiful oasis for all the human races
The only home that we know, this island earth


Well I know we can touch the stars one day
Kick up the dust on Mars one day
Or trip the light of the Milky Way
We've got to find our way


If you're lookin' for a miracle open your eyes
There was one this morning just about sunrise
Dawn came breakin' like a wave on the sea
And it's there for you and me


Calling all dreamers and optimistic fools
Don't let go of your dream make it now make it all come true
If you believe in a brighter day
I know we can find our way


To this island, in a starry ocean
She's poetry in motion, this island earth
Spinnin' like a dancer, gravity is the answer
Rendezvous in the blue, this island earth


Whoa, this island earth
Got to find our way
Whoa, this island earth
Whoa, this island earth
