  1. Shelter Island

From the recording Shelter Island

Lyrics

We see it on the horizon past the tall ship’s skinny mast
As the ferry bobs and glides us in at last
So let’s unpack we made it back after one more crazy year
To these happy weeks when all worries disappear
 
Chorus:
Now summer’s come again, there’s no more waiting
And we’re trading in the pavement for the sand
Tell the winter goodbye, we’re relocating
To Shelter Island, Shelter Island
 
Everyone needs a secret place to dream of better days
Through the strung-out months when we can’t be castaways
I close my eyes and an osprey flies, and it lifts my spirit free
Till I’m heading back out to where I’d rather be
(chorus)
 
With you, my love, life is full and grand
But we work so hard we can lose sight of everything we planned
Good friends, fun and a world of sun should be what we’re living for
Let’s drop anchor in the harbor of our favorite shore
 
Now summer’s come again, there’s no more waiting
And we’re trading in the pavement for the sand
Tell the winter goodbye, we’re relocating
To Shelter Isle, rejoicing hand in hand
(chorus)
 
To Shelter Isle, rejoicing hand in hand
