Island in the Sea

It’s been too long beneath this tree

Too long for lovers to live apart

Too long his face I yearn to see

Yet his memory lives in my heart

I grieve another day on this island in the sea.

The King of Lanka stole from me

Stole my freedom in disguise

Stole me away so I might agree

To a marriage I would despise

I fear another day on this island in the sea

I hold to the hope in my heart

Hope that he will search for me

Hope that we aren’t torn apart

By the cruel hand of destiny   

I hope no other day on this island in the sea.
