David Gilmour - On An Island - Uke

Intro : Em Em Em Em Em Em Em Em

Em Em Am Am
Remember that night...
Cmaj7 Cmaj7 Bm Bm B B Em Em
White steps in the moonlight
Am Am
They walked it too...
Cmaj7 Cmaj7 Bm Bm B B Em Em
Through empty playground, this ghost's town
Am Am Cmaj7 Cmaj7 Bm Bm B B Em Em
Children again on rusting swings getting higher
Am Am
Sharing a dream
Cmaj7 Cmaj7 Bm Bm B B
On an Island.... it felt right
Em Em Bm Bm
We lay side by side,
Dm Dm Am Am
Between the moon and the tide
Cm Cm Gm Gm A A
Mapping the stars for a while


G G A A Em Em
Let the night surround you
G G A A Em Em
We're half way to the stars,
G G A A
Ebb Ebb and flow
G G A A G G A A Em Em
Let it go, feel her warmth beside you



Em Em Am Am
Remember that night,
Cmaj7 Cmaj7 Bm Bm B B Em Em
The warmth and the laughter
Am Am
Candles burn...
Cmaj7 Cmaj7 Bm Bm B B Em Em
Though the church was deserted
Am Am Cmaj7 Cmaj7 Bm Bm B B Em Em
At dawn we went down through empty streets to the harbour
Am Am Cmaj7 Cmaj7 Bm Bm B B
Dreamers may leave, but theye're here everafter...
Em Em Bm Bm Dm Dm Am Am Cm Cm Gm Gm A A
Da da da da da....

G G A A Em Em
Let the night surround you
G G A A Em Em
We're half way to the stars,
G G A A
Ebb Ebb and flow
B7 B7 A A G G A A Em Em
Let it go, feel her warmth beside you

About this song

"On an Island" is the second song and title track from David Gilmour's third solo album, On an Island. It segues from the previous track, Castellorizon, and is very placid in nature. It was released as a preview of the album some weeks prior to the album's official release. The song is both based on a night Gilmour spent on the Greek island of Kastelorizo, as well as being about remembering and honouring those who have died. It, like the entirety of the album of the same name, was performed live during David's 2006 tour and appears on the official tour DVD Remember That Night.
