"Living on an Island" as written by and Richard John/young Parfitt....
Easy when you're number one
Everybody say you're having fun
Smiling for the public eye
When your body say you wanna die
Living on an island
Looking at another line
Waiting for my friend to come
And we'll get high

Hugh he got a real nice place
Cruxie gonna be there soon
And I just want to see his face
I'm getting lonely in my empty room
Living on an island
Working at another line
Waiting for my friend to come
And we'll get high

Passing time away in blue skies
Thinking of the smile in her eyes
Easy, it's easy

Living on an island
Oh boy, we're having fun
Living on an island
Thinking about the things I've done
Living on an island
Searching for an other line
Waiting for my friend to come
And we'll get high
Waiting for my friend to come
And we'll get high
I said we're gonna get high
Yeah, we're gonna get high
We're gonna touch the sky
Sky, sky, sky, sky, sky, sky

    General Commentparfit wrote this about the band being popular while he was waiting at a friends house, doing coke and waiting for his dealer to arrive. hence the lines-'working st another line' and 'waiting for my friend to come and we'll get high'
    its all very straight forward

    General CommentThis is a gr8 song, much different from all their other songs i think its about how being famous isn't all it's cracked up to be and that it can make you isolated hence 'living on an island'

    General CommentI know Parfitt wrote this when he had to spend some amount of time on an island somewhere (it might have been the isle of man) because of tax debt or something to do with tax. He wrote it then about being lonely. I can't remember all the details but it's on the "The Party Aint Over Yet" DVD
