The Island Of Children's Children - solo guitar arrangement

This is 'The Island Of Children's Children' arranged for solo guitar. I arranged it in

nice over the top. Please enjoy!

As for the lyrics i'm not totally sure what they are, but here's my stab at guessing them: Swim to shore We two Pack the kids We who Blue Soft Wave Too dry Scream and shout Go hide Sin for you who they, will find your way While go way nice and, dark come back Home + With you, who falls, we who, so small, Can I please try, make it good again Good luck! Please send me any questions or comments. I have recorded a version of this get in touch if yoou'd like to hear it.
