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
