"Island" as written by Trevor Charles Horn and Geoffrey Downes....
I'm an island
Everyone can see that I'm an island
I've got ocean just about everywhere that I can see
And I'll be stranded unless you come to me
And I'm lonely

[Chorus]
I would rather fall from grace completely
Than let you change my mind
And I would rather bet my life against the rising of the sun

Can't be too careful bout the friends you keep around you
Some who never let you down
Some who fail you every day
And it's a blatant disrespect of privacy
It amazes me

[Chorus]

I'm an island
Can't you understand me?
I'm an island?
And I'm finally by myself, the way I've got to be
And that's exactly the thing that's been killing me

[Chorus: x3]

The rising...
