Verse 1 I think about the things I see
Walking around watching the wind blow
Kind of like a fly on the wall of life
If you will

And sometimes it hits me
Like the sun in my eyes
Off of the water
We can't go on with this living for today
Chorus We live in a time full of wide eyed wonder
We live in a time that forgot one little thing

We live on an island in the sky
Verse 2 I've often thought about it
Just where in the world do we think we're going
Running around like we
Really think we're gonna get somewhere

Just take a look around you now
At the big black sky
The stars and you wonder
Just how much do I really need anyway
Chorus We live in a world made of stardust and thunder
We live in a world that asks one little thing

We live on an island in the sky
A heavenly light shining the life to you

We live on an island in the sky
Bridge And everyone is somebody's child
And every heart is born wild
Just growing old
Growing slow
We take our turn
And hoe our row
Verse 3 I sing about the things I see
Walking around watching the wind blow
Kind of like a fly on the wall of life
If you will
Chorus We live in a time full of wide eyed wonder
We live in a time that forgot one little thing

We live on an island in the sky
A heavenly light shining the life to you

We live on an island in the sky
Never to leave, we live on the face of God

We live on an island in the sky
