There are no streets to walk on, no maps you can rely on;
Faith and guts to guide you, wander till you find you;
Only raw desire, no match to give you fire -
You'll have to trust your heart

They don't believe in oceans; you, you were a sailor
Who burned your ship and walked on, far away you walked on;
You keep turning inland, where no man is an island -
It's where you're supposed to be.

Whoa... whoa...
You keep heading inland, where no man is an island -
Come on home to me.

Afraid of your convictions, they said the land will change you;
Steady your confession, your course make no corrections.
When you are a stranger, hold your tongue and wager
That love will set you free...
Until it sets you free.

Whoa... whoa...
You keep walking inland, where no man is an island -
Come on home to me

Whoa... whoa...
You keep walking inland, where no man is an island -
Come on home to me

Just follow your desire;
Leave it all, you're leaving all -
Just burn it in the fire...

Of everything you once knew, and everyone that knew you;
Remove the shoes you came on, feel the earth you're made from -
Pack up all your questions, just keep heading inland,
And come on home to me.
Yeah, come on home to me

Whoa... whoa...
You keep walking inland, where no man is an island -
Come on home to me

Whoa...
(I will always be here by your side)
Whoa...
(I will always stand next to you)
You keep walking inland,
(Where your darkness hits the light)
Where no man is an island -
(In the space where you stand against the tide)
Come on home to me.
(I will always stand next to you)
Just come on home to me.
(Whoa...)
(I will always stand next to you)
Come on home to me.
(Whoa...)
(I will always be here by your side)
Come on home to me.
