dance along the shore
take our time for more
and all along you know our hearts will sing
you can leave the island

but you can’t leave my heart
you know the memory remains[Em7sus4]
and I loved you

thinkin of you
and I never will forget
and the feeling
had me reeling
I can’t believe it
it’s so easy
to be free[Em7sus4]
of the moonlit nights
and the stars were high
you can see Savannah shine across the waves
I know you must move on
and I will carry on
as long as the memory remains
you can leave the island
but you can’t leave my love
you can’t take back what you gave a[Em7sus4]way
you can leave the island
but you can’t leave my heart
you know the memory remains[Em7sus4]
