Song Lyric Sunday – We are all islands, let’s dream about bridges.

Last week I took part in Jim Adam’s Song Lyric Sunday Challenge, the theme was Communication, Information, News, Telephone suggested by Di of pensitivity101.

Heavenly Bodies, Planets, Moon, Sun, Stars, as suggested by King Ben’s Grandma.

The Song Lyric Sunday Challenge this week the theme is Atoll, Island, Key, Lagoon, Peninsula, Reef, Tropical suggested by Tales from the mind of Kristian (oh that’s me!) . I remember now suggesting this, but I can be so forgetful at times! This is a great challenge and I’d like to thank Jim Adams for hosting it and for including my suggestion for this week.

It made me thing quite deep and meaningfully about how we are all Islands being battered by the storms of life, occasionally we manage to build bridges with other Islands, but sometimes they are fragile and collapse and sometimes they endure.

My choice of song is called Island of Dreams, I may have posted this before but I do love it.

The Lyrics

I wandered the streets and the gay crowded places
Trying to forget you but somehow it seems
My thoughts ever stray to our last sweet embraces
Over the sea on the island of dreams

High in the sky is the bird on the wing
Please carry me with you
Far far away from the mad rushing crowd
Please carry me with you

Again I would wander where memories enfold me
There on the beautiful island of dreams

High in the sky is the bird on the wing
Please carry me with you
Far far away from the mad rushing crowd
Please carry me with you

Again I would wander where memories enfold me
There on the beautiful island of dreams
Far far away on the island of dreams

The Song was written by Tom Springfield who was the brother of Dusty Springfield who went on to have a famous solo career. The song was originally written and realeased in 1962 for the band that Tom and Dusty were in together called The Springfields, and here is a recording of them singing it.

Apart from the overly folksy sound, it’s still a great version and you could see that Dusty was bound to go far. Her voice is amazing.

People are far too complicated to be able to describe in a few words so I am not even going to try.
