VERSE 1
********
D                 Bm
Islands, from the first time we saw
         G                          D
We could wait for this moment, like rocks on the shore
                Bm
We can never be closer, somehow
        G                     D
For the moment that lasts, is this moment now

-------------------------------------------------------------------
BRIDGE
*******
         D          G              A                    D
When the night's on fire, will you keep the candlelight burning
                G       A
Hold on to your heart's desire, (When the night's on fire)
         D       G             A                   D
When you see one bird into the wind, another one's turning
                G        A
And the two can fly much higher

-------------------------------------------------------------------
CHORUS
*******
       D
We are islands but never too far\
       Em                        \
We are islands                    \
      A                            X2
And I need your light tonight     /
      D                          /
And I need your light tonight   /  

-------------------------------------------------------------------
VERSE 2
********
D              Bm
Islands, never been to before
       G                          D
And we climb so high to where the wild birds soar
                           Bm
There's a new path that we found just today
      G                          D
I was lost in the forest and you showed me the way

-------------------------------------------------------------------
BRIDGE
*******
         D          G              A                    D
When the night's on fire, will you keep the candlelight burning
                G       A
Hold on to your heart's desire, (When the night's on fire)
         D       G             A                   D
When you see one bird into the wind, another one's turning
                G        A
And the two can fly much higher

-------------------------------------------------------------------
CHORUS
*******
       D
We are islands but never too far\
       Em                        \
We are islands                    \
      A                            X5
And I need your light tonight     /
      D                          /
And I need your light tonight   /
