i will lyrics – chris de burgh

i’m going to an island,
where the sun will always shine,
where the moon is always riding on the sea;
and when i go i’ll leave behind,
these chains that hold me down,
the time has come to set my spirit free,
ah, ah … i will

and there beside a mountain stream,
i’ll build a house of stone,
and work the wood of cedar, pine and fir,
and then i’ll make a garden,
and i’ll plant a field of corn,
press my hands deep into mother earth,

ah, ah … i will,
yes i will,
oh i will,
just to be a part of nature once again,
i want to be a part of nature once again,
and i will…

and then i’ll teach my children love,
like every father should,
for we are part of every living thing,
and speak of half-forgotten words,
like peace and joy and good,
for the world can only live when love can sing,

ah, ah … i will,
oh, yes i will,
i will,
and they will be a part of nature once again,
oh they will feel a part of nature once again,
the time is now,
just to be a part of nature once again,
and i will, ah ah, someday i will, (someday i will)
