Well I've taken walks by the rolling sea
Where the cliffs drop down to meet the big blue deep
I've breathed in the air that rolls over these hills
I've breathed it in, but I've had my fill

I've gotta roll
Roll away
Maybe I'll return to this island some day

I've gotta roll
Roll away
Maybe I'll return to this island some day

From the towns and ports
My thatched hilltop house
I've never felt as safe, as I do right now
But I know there's a world waiting out there
And I'll rush straight out to it with a wing and a prayer

I've gotta roll
Roll away
Maybe I'll return to this island some day

I've gotta roll
Roll away
Maybe I'll return to this island some day

well I've loved this place with my breathe and my bones
And I'll always call, this island my home
But I know when the day comes
With my farewell, I will return with a story to tell

I've gotta roll
Roll away
Maybe I'll return to this island some day

I've gotta roll
Roll away
Maybe I'll return to this island some day
