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
