I come from the salt water people 
We always live by the sea 
They say home is where you find it 
Will this place ever satisfy me?

N' my island home
My island home
My island home 
Is waiting for me

N' my island home
My island home
My island home 
Is waiting for me

Six years I lived in the desert
And every night 
I dreamt of the sea
Now I'm down here living in the city 
With all 
Of my family

N' my island home
My island home
My island home 
Is waiting for me 

N' my island home
My island home
My island home
Is waiting for me

In the evening the dry wind blows 
From the hills and across the plains 
I close my eyes and I'm standing 
In a boat on the sea again 
And I'm holding that long 
Turtle spear 
And I feel I'm close now
To where it must be 

My island home is 
Waiting for me

My home is Australia
We are a land bound by sea
Though I may travel far across the ocean
It will never forget me

N' my island home 
My island home
My island home 
Is waiting for me 

N' my island home
My island home
My island home
Is waiting for me

N' my island home
My island home 
My island home 
Is surrounded by sea
