"Fantastic Place" as written by and Ian Mosley (t) Mark Kelly (t)....
Islands are mountain-tops

It's always a struggle
To let somebody go
It's a natural desire
To own your lover, I know

And you can screw a man down
Until he takes to drinking
He'll give you all of his money
You still won't know what he's thinking

Take me to the fantastic place
Keep the rest of my life away
Take me to the fantastic place
Keep the rest of my life away

Take me to the island
I'll watch the rain over your shoulder
The streetlights in the water
The moment outside of real life

I never could dream while I was sleeping
Put your arms around my soul
And take it dancing..

Take me to the fantastic place
Keep the rest of my life away
Take me to the fantastic place
Keep the rest of my life away

Take me to the island
I'll watch the rain over your shoulder
The streetlights on the wet stone
The moment outside of real life

Say you understand me
And I will leave myself completely
Forgive me if I stare
But I can see the island behind your tired, troubled eyes

Take me to the island
I'll tell you all I never told you
The boy I never showed you
More than I gave in my life
Take me by the hand
You'll either kill me or you'll save me
Take me to the island
Show me what might be real life

    General CommentYet another fantastic (no pun intended) track from Marillion. I love this lyric "Put your arms around my soul. And take it dancing."
