Lyrics for Island In The Sun by Weezer:

Intro
Hip hip, hip hip, hip hip, hip hip

Verse 1
When you're on a holiday
You can’t find the words to say
All the things that come to you
And I wanna feel it too

Chorus
On an island in the sun
We’ll be playing and having fun
And it makes me feel so fine
I can’t control my brain

Post-Chorus
Hip hip, hip hip

Verse 2
When you're on a golden sea
You don’t need no memory
Just a place to call your own
As we drift into the zone

Chorus
On an island in the sun
We’ll be playing and having fun
And it makes me feel so fine
I can’t control my brain

Bridge
We'll run away together
We'll spend some time forever
We'll never feel bad anymore

Post-Chorus
Hip hip, hip hip, hip hip

Guitar Solo

Chorus
On an island in the sun
We’ll be playing and having fun
And it makes me feel so fine
I can’t control my brain

Bridge
We'll run away together
We'll spend some time forever
We'll never feel bad anymore

Outro
Hip hip, hip hip, hip hip, hip hip
We'll never feel bad anymore, no no
Hip hip, hip hip, hip hip, hip hip
We'll never feel bad anymore, no no

Song Facts

Chill and laid-back, “Island in the Sun” is the softer side to Weezer’s Green Album, a retreat from heavier guitars to fantasizing about running away with a special someone to some sunny island. In a review of underrated Weezer songs, The AV Club called the song “sweet and innocently hopeful” and said that it justified comparisons between frontman Rivers Cuomo and Brian Wilson. In 2013, Rolling Stone rated the song the 46th best summer song of all time. The song was also featured in a 2006 episode of The Simpsons entitled “The Wettest Stories Ever Told”.

“Island in the Sun” was one of the last songs Mikey Welsh worked on as the bass guitar player for Weezer before he left after having repeated mental breakdowns while on tour.
