"Islands in the Sky" as written by and John Elefante Dino Elefante....
In this great city, you don't hear church bells ring
Everybody dances, but nobody sings
And in the winter, there's never snow on the round
As I look out my window at the rivers of black
I wanna get out on the at highway and never come back
I set and wonder, has it all passed me by
Islands in the sky

Skyscraper temples way above the clouds
And a streetcorner preacher, shoutin' out loud
Nobody listens, and nobody cares
But everybody needs a dream
Everybody needs and island in the sky

Chorus:
Islands in the sky, Islands in the sky
Make a young boy's dreams, make an old man cry
Islands in the sky, Islands in the sky

(Repeat Chorus)

Someday I'll be there, I just don't know when
It's so far away now, but it won't be then
I don't know, I don't know
But everybody needs a dream
Everybody needs and island in the sky

(Repeat Chorus)
