This tea's too strong for me as I await your company
I had too much sun today
Ocean waters wash away
Nothing but the present presenting its presence

This island life
Separate my right from my wrong

No, I am not pagan but my heart has been forsaken
And the hand of God was on my mind
It took some time from time to time
Now in the course I know time itself will go

This island life
Separates my right from my wrong

You forgot your shoes and I, I have sent a message but I
So many stars in the sky
It's the truths that will not lie
There's a young wild native maiden running mad and barefoot to the sea

Until this island life
Separates my rights from my wrongs

This island life
Finally separates my rights from my wrong

This tea's too strong for me as I await more company
I had too much sun today
Dream of lands lying far away
Pregnant with the present presenting its presents

This island life
Separate my right from my wrong

This island life
Separate my rights from my song

Separate my right from my wrong
Separate my right from my wrong
Separate my right from my wrong
(Separate my right from my wrong)
