Lyrics

Island Bound

Written By: Jordan Dack

There’s an old coffee shop a thousand miles from here,
If we leave now we could make it by morning.
The owner's a good man, few in friends and many in years,
I bet if we smile we could make his whole summer.

But we’ve gotta leave now,
And we’ve gotta leave quickly,
Before the judges wake.
We’ve gotta leave now,
We’ve got leave quietly,
Before we write this off,
As a brave mistake.

There’s a small garden plot, it’s really just soil and rocks,
But if we bring seeds we can grow our own dinner.
And you and I could learn to stop...
And then race to see who can slow down quicker.

There’s a lonely piece of grass that’s just begging for our backs,
And who are we to question that?

We don’t even need to pack,
We just press down on the gas,
Who need’s a map to find the ocean?

But we’ve gotta leave now,
And we’ve gotta leave quickly,
Before our logic wakes.
We’ve gotta leave now,
We’ve got leave quietly,
Before it's all too late.

I’ll take the wheel and you take a deep breath,
I left the phone ringing at home on the desk,
Let’s rip the rearview mirror off the window.

Just press down that pedal and point ourselves west,
We’ll drive this old highway till none of it’s left,
There’s a man drinking coffee who’s summer depends on our smile.

But we've got to leave now,
And we've got to leave quickly,
Before our logic wakes,
But we had to leave now,
And we had to leave quickly,
Before our own two hands...
Close the gate.
