My Island

I’m gonna leave this world behind me
I’m gonna find my promised land now
Too many battles I was lost in
I’m gonna find a place to hide now

Within myself, within myself
Within myself, within myself
Within myself, within myself
Within myself, within myself
Within myself, within myself
Within myself

And I say no to you
To all of your expectations
How I should live, what I should do
To all of your hopes for me
To your restless mind
I say no

Breathing along my heartbeat
I feel my past slipping away
I’m gonna find a way to heal me
I’m gonna sing along with my soul

Within my sound, within my sound
Within my sound, within my sound,
Within my sound, within my sound,
Within my sound, within my sound,
Within my sound, within my sound,
Within my sound

And I say no to you
To all of your expectations
How I should live, what I should do
To all of your hopes for me
To your restless mind
I say no
I say no
I say no
I say no

I’m gonna keep my course without you
I’m gonna sleep tonight under the sky
Finding some peace inside me
Leaving my hell without a cry

Within I’ve found, within I’ve found
Within I’ve found, within I’ve found
Within I’ve found, within I’ve found
Within I’ve found, within I’ve found
Within I’ve found, within I’ve found
Within I’ve found – you!

But I say no!
I say no!

And I say no to you
To all of your expectations
How I should live, what I should do
To all of your hopes for me
To your restless mind
I say no
I say no
I say no
I say no

I say no
