I Am An Island
by Richard Clapton
transcribed by Adam McCaskill

Great track by Richard Clapton. Ian Moss played guitar on this one in the studio.

Riff
Young hearts on Paradise Street, tumble down like poetry,
Oh my, I've got to fly, reach up and touch the sky,

A                  G
Up and down with the party clowns, 
C                 Em
Ballroom dancing in sequined gowns,
A                 G
I get so confused searching for you babe,
C                 C#m              D
How come you keep walking off that way?
 
Chorus

A    C#m7              Bm7          
Little darling this is the end,
A      C#m7     Bm7
I needed you like oxygen,
D      A      D         A
"I am an island", some sucker scrawled,
D      A               Em
"I am an island" on a city wall
 
Riff / Verse / Chorus etc repeats

Broadway walk the length and breadth, 
I think I'm smoking myself to death,
You're bad for me, and bad for the soul,
I think I'm losing my self control,
 
I've got nothing but vacancy,
 Crawling after you on my hands and knees,
 I'm a coal car on a downhill track,
 I don't know what I'll do if you don't come back
 
Little darling, this is the end,
 I needed you like oxygen,
 "I am an island", some sucker scrawled,
 "I am an island", on a city wall
