On an island that I know in a distant land
The sun comes out each day and warms the sand
Yeah, look at it rising from the sea

I was in this special place when I first realized
That there is something of which we are all deprived
Yeah and that's just a little peace

It's the story of our lives
Working hard and striving without seeing what we lose along the way
Well I have finally found a sunny corner of my mind where I can stay sane

When the walls close in
And the weight becomes too much to bear
Yeah you know where to go
Make a getaway and find me there
Far away

From the struggle that I live with every day
Got nowhere to be so I just lay awake
And I'm searching for the real

Oh, and the sand beneath my feet
Absorbs the blood and sweat I spill much better than concrete
And I know if I found myself in trying times I'd close my eyes
And feel the ocean breeze

Whoa, it's the story of our lives
Working hard and striving without seeing what we lose along the way
Well I have finally found a sunny corner of my mind where I can stay sane

When the walls close in
And the weight becomes too much to bear
Yeah you know where to go
Make a getaway and find me there
Far away
Oh, so far away

When the walls close in
And the weight becomes too much to bear
Yeah you know where to go
Make a getaway and find me there
Far away
