“At the Beach”

21 May 2011

Originally posted 23 May 2010, with a different video. Even more apropos now, esp. the “summer, summer” part…

I know that you’re smiling, baby,
I don’t even need to see your face.
Sunset at the shoreline, we are laughing,
breaking up, just like the waves.

Are you feeling, feeling,
feeling like I’m feeling,
Like I’m floating, floating,
up above that big blue ocean?

Sand beneath our feet,
big blue sky above our heads.
No need to keep the stressing from our everyday life on our minds—
We have got to leave all that behind.

Well, I have got a sister,
And she has got a baby with brand new eyes.
And her daddy is an engineer,
And they just took her to the sea for the first time.

Now they’re under, under,
underneath a big umbrella,
Summer, summer,
summer time to help us forget, nine to fives.
We have got to leave all that behind

I have worries to give to the sea.
We can’t walk dear; the pier is farther than it seems.

Midnight at the shoreline,
fireworks above us:
A screaming bloom.
They’re sent by some teenager
and kid whoever you are, I am thanking you.

Now we’re dancing, dancing,
dancing with no music,
What is happening, happening,
happening and no feelings, except this is right,
‘Cause we just had to leave all that behind.
