My original piano piece is posted on nadiacripps.bandcamp.com/track/island-of-dreams Kristi created a very beautiful and inspiring lyric.
Dawn created an amazing vocal melody and sang it beautifully.
Thank you both Kristi and Dawn for a wonderful collaboration!
Thank you Corinne for the title which was of an inspiration to me to create my piano piece.


v1
I hope that love
Is all around me
There is the sun
Shining down and warming up the sea

[ch]
Sometimes
I dream
And find I’m all alone
Trees all around
And my hair is uncombed

Water
around me
I’m floating on the waves
Shelter
beside me
Sand and the shade

v2
Can there really be
No one here
What’s in the woods
So much to see
All I have to do is---
All I have to do is...look

[ch]
Sometimes
I dream
And find I’m all alone
Trees all around
And my hair is uncombed

Water
around me
I’m floating on the waves
Shelter
beside me
Sand and shade

[br]
Around the corner
Comes a vision
It tells me to follow, to listen
I walk on over
And notice a mirror
Hidden by clovers

So large, so bold
It’s too....heavy to hold
It tells me what I need to know

Sometimes when I dream
I am not alone
