My Isle Of Golden Dreams - Lyrics by Gus Kahn, Music by Walter Blaufuss

 

Out of the mist, lips I have kissed,
Call tenderly
 
Out of the west, hands I have pressed,
Beckon to me

Over the sea, waiting for me
Lonely and blue
 
Somebody sighs, somebody cries
"I love you, I love you"

Drifting in dreams, drifting it seems
Back to the shore
 
Where hand in hand, over the sand
We'll stroll once more

Heart of my heart, no more we'll part
I hear her say
 
But with the dawn,
My dream has gone astray

I hear the voice of my land
Calling me it seems
 
That fair Hawaiian island
My Isle of Golden Dreams

Somehow I know, sometime I'll go
Back o'er the sea
Where all alone, someone I've known
Waits patiently

Lips I have kissed, lips I have missed
Whisper it seems
Come for awhile,
Back to your Isle of dreams

Thy Isle of Golden Dreams
My Isle of Golden Dreams
