Island of the SUN is the sixth acoustic melodic song from my first Album called 12 String Drift. The tune is played on a 12 string acoustic guitar in standard tuning with a capo on the second fret in the key of B. A somewhat folk inspired fingerpicking guitar song about a girl I met in South America, after walking around on the Island of the Sun (Isla Del Sol). Which is in lake Titicaca on the border of Peru and Bolivia. Amazing place and a must visit if your ever in that part of the world.

Island of the Sun Lyrics 🎙️
An island where I prayed.
To make a change, heaven made its way.
Next time I won’t pray. or make mistakes, I won’t walk away.
The pain inside the rain, it stays the same, stays inside my veins.
Sometimes life is good, through the pain, it throws You in the fire.
And through this strength is gained, for those who wait, it sometimes takes us higher.
But answers never came, to those who blame, sometimes makes us tired.
And then the pain of change, it came to late, it came to be my fate.
And now I see the sun, the island of the one, where it all begun.
As unknown answers wait, I’ll carry on, but once again it’s just a song.
This time life is fair, this time I don’t care.
The road is long, it makes me strong.
And so fait meets the eye and lookout I can’t cry.
But outside I will long to reach the sky.
I wrote this song, to say the least, that love is all, I can’t compete.
My word came out so deep and all I know, God is love, I cannot see.
