This Island Earth by The Nylons

Perhaps not the best music video, but it was the only one on YouTube.  I love this song, and nearly everything else The Nylons do.  This is from their Happy Together album.

Calling all dreamers and optimistic fools
Don’t let go of your dream make it now make it all come true
If you believe in a brighter day
I know we can find our way

To this island, in a starry ocean
Poetry in motion, this island earth
Spinnin’ like a dancer, gravity is the answer
Rendezvous in the blue, this island earth

We don’t know what’s in store today
We can spread our wings and we can soar away
Or we can go like the dinosaurs, they say
The choice is ours to make

All this seems like yesterday
We can wake up one day and be history
Or stick around to unravel the mystery
Of how we came to be

On this island, in a starry ocean
Poetry in motion, this island earth
A beautiful oasis for all the human races
The only home that we know, this island earth

Well I know we can touch the stars one day
Kick up the dust on Mars one day
Or trip the light of the Milky Way
We’ve got to find our way

If you’re lookin’ for a miracle open your eyes
There was one this morning just about sunrise
Dawn came breakin’ like a wave on the sea
And it’s there for you and me

Calling all dreamers and optimistic fools
Don’t let go of your dream make it now make it all come true
If you believe in a brighter day
I know we can find our way

To this island, in a starry ocean
She’s poetry in motion, this island earth
Spinnin’ like a dancer, gravity is the answer
Rendezvous in the blue, this island earth

Whoa, this island earth
Got to find our way
Whoa, this island earth
Whoa, this island earth
