Lyrics - Somewhere in the dark

4. Simple man


Woke up on a beach today, didn't know how I came there. The sky was blue, cotton clouds high up in the air. My clothes were torn, the ship was gone. I've got no one but myself now, I'm on my own. Where is the ship on the horizon that is coming to take me home? I wanna leave this far-away island, I wanna leave it alone. I'm building a fire, I'm lighting it up, waiting for the boat to come and pick me up. Waves are gently lapping at the soles of my feet, the birds are circling above me, and my heart just skips a beat. I'm the second Robinson Crusoe, stranded on this faraway land, I'm not the God of earth and heaven, I'm just a simple man. Just a plain and simple man. How did I get here to this place, a million miles from home, I've lost my sense of time and space and I feel so alone. I'm stranded on this land, so beautiful and calm, I'm like a message in a bottle but the bottle's gone. My body tells me what I need, my mind is in a haze, my thoughts are drifting round and round for endless nights and days. I can see a ship on the horizon, it is coming to take me home! Finally I'm gonna leave this far-away island, I'm gonna leave it alone. I'm gonna leave it alone.
