Over the Bay

I’m out on the sand, out in the sun
Out of commission from this bottle of rum
I’m still here though I seem to be fading away
I’m just watching this music float right over the bay

I was naïve, I never knew 
‘Til I come down here what the sun could do
I feel my ambition just slowly slipping away
I’m just watching this music float right over the bay

My oh my can you tell me how it come to pass
You know that time flies, it all went by too fast

Back up north, there’s work to be done
When I hit those mean streets, I’ll be on a dead run
Down here they can’t catch me, I’m too far away
I’m just watching this music float right over the bay

I know that I’ve got a lot of things to do
But if you say so I would spend another day with you

The suns going to shine, the tides going to roll
This island life is going to take its toll
Just sit right here, I’ll bring you a beer and we can play
We’re going to watch this music float right over the bay

We’re going to watch this music float right over the bay
We’re going to watch this music float right over the bay
