Lyrics

Early September

Late summertime

A spread out blanket a book

Marlboro Lights

A holiday weekend

Just you and I

To make and ponder memories

In the warm sunshine

 

We came here as children

And took our children too

Some things never change

No matter how long it's been

On the shoulder of a shoreline

Content with the view

You've always liked the ocean

But you never go in

 

So Let's go back to the room now

I'm tired and there's a game on

I'll grab a bucket of ice for my bourbon

And there's a six-pack in the fridge

We've still got tomorrow morning

At least until eleven

We can take a walk by the water

Like we did when we were kids

 

You sure do look nice

In your new summer dress

Your hair down and a smile

And your cheeks a sun-kissed rose

These black and white photographs

Don't do you justice

Yellow was always your color

I suppose

 

The sea breeze is cool

On my sunburned skin

The song of the carousel

The Ferris wheel lights

But the sweat on my brow reminds me

Of the shape that I'm in

It's been a long day

So let's call it a night

 

And go back to the room now

I'm tired and there's a game on

I'll grab a bucket of ice for my bourbon

And there's a six-pack in the fridge

We've still got tomorrow morning

At least until eleven

We can take a walk by the water

Like we did when we were kids

 

We can take a walk by the water

And remember when we were kids

 

Now the waves crash onto the beach

Like years upon our lives

Taking with them what was once before us

And leaving only shells behind
