I come from the Saltwater people
We always live by the sea
They say home is where you find it
Will this place ever satisfy me

And my island home
My island home
My island home is waiting for me
My island home
My island home
My island home is waiting for me

Six years I lived in the desert
Every night, I dreamt of the sea
Now I'm down here living in the city
With all of my family

And my island home
My island home
My island home is waiting for me
My island home
My island home
My island home is waiting for me

In the evening the dry wind blows
From the hills and across the plain
I close my eyes and I'm standing
In a boat on the sea again

And I'm holding that long turtle spear
And I feel I'm close now
To where it must be
And my island home is waiting for me

My home is Australia
We are a land
Bound by sea.
And though I may travel far across the ocean
It will never, forget me

And my island home
My island home
My island home is waiting for me
My island home
My island home
My island home is waiting for me

My island home
My island home
My island home is surrounded by sea
My island home
My island home
My island home in a cosmic sea
