Once On This Island - Why We Tell The Story Lyrics

Font:      
Align:    
  • A tree that sprang up and cracked the walls of the hotel Beauxhomme
  • So that its gates could never close again
  • A tree that lived forever sheltering peasant and grand homme alike
  • A tree that watched over Daniel for his lifetime
  • A tree in which his children played
  • And one day as Daniel's young son sat in the shade of the tree
  • He noticed a beautiful young peasant girl high in the branches
  • Looking out at the world
  • And the spirit of Ti Moune touched their hearts
  • And set them free to love
  • And she stands against the lightning and the thunder
  • And she shelters and protects us from above
  • And she fills us with the power and the wonder of her love
  • And this is why we tell the story
  • Why we tell the story
  • Why we tell the story
  • Why we tell the story
  • If you listen very hard you hear her call us
  • To come share with her our laughter and our tears
  • And there's mysteries and miracles befall us through the years
  • We tell the story
  • We tell the story
  • Life is why we tell the story
  • Pain is why we tell the story
  • Love is why we tell the story
  • Grief is why we tell the story
  • Hope is why we tell the story
  • Faith is why we tell the story
  • You are why we tell the story
  • Why we tell the story
  • Why we tell the story
  • Why we tell the story
  • So I hope that you will tell this tale tomorrow
  • It will help your heart remember and relive
  • It will help you feel the anger and the sorrow and forgive
  • For all the ones we leave and we believe
  • Our lives become the stories that we weave
  • There is an island where the rivers run deep
  • Where the seas sparkling in the sun
  • Earns it the name Jewel of the Antilles
  • An island where the poorest of peasants live
  • And the wealthiest of grand homme play
  • And on this island we tell the story
  • We tell the story
