Got caught by the tide so we slept on the dunes
Beneath the blanket of stars we sang our tunes
We laughed and we talked til the moon kissed our eyes
Fell asleep under Northumbrian skies
Restless dreams I walk alone, parthumdrian shores, ancient stones
I heard Saint Aidan call my name, he said, "let your heart become a burning flame"

Holy island ooh, there's a light for ships lost at sea
Holy island ooh, there's a place for sanctuary

Woke in the morning with the mist in our hair
Tired and hungry but we didn't care
A fishermen was mending his net by the sea
As we passed by he said to me

Holy island, your whole life can seem just like one day
Holy island ooh, your heart can get swept away on the tide
On holy island, holy island, the mystery hides

We climbed the castle walls, I looked around
The sea went on for ever, I swear I heard the sound
That angels sing
To holy island, to holy island, where your troubles bring

On holy island, there's a light for ships, that are lost at sea
Holy island ooh, there's a place for sanctuary
Should you craft e'er come upon that stony ground
Holy island, on holy island, you'll be found

Holy island

We got caught by the tide so we slept on the dunes
Beneath the blanket of stars we sang our tunes
We laughed and we talked til the moon kissed our eyes
Fell asleep under Northumbrian skies
