Lyrics: 

The Beach
© 2020 Coolparadiso

As often does on days like this
All though its out of reach
I dream of another time and place
Back down there on the beach

It starts right back in my youth
A time Of innocence and fun
When we played we laughed we swam
Always under a baking sun

You can take the boy away from the beach
Find other places of joy
But one thing you can never do
Is take the beach out of the boy

The tide slides in and out again
The waves roll on by
I see the beach so clearly
But just in my minds eye

I guess one day ill go back there
I hope it wont be long
Because one thing i know for sure
The pull of the beach is strong

You can take the boy away from the beach
Find other places of joy
But one thing you can never do
Is take the beach out of the boy

Sweet collaboration! Smile The lyrics paint such clear mental pictures, and the vocal delivery is wistfully beautiful.

Ah, my favorite vocalist sings coolparadiso. This is heaven! I love beach-oriented themes anyway (have a Beach Boys-influenced song uploading right now). Another great, great song from both of you!

This is short, sweet and beautiful. I like the soft, reflective feel to both the lyrics and the performance. This is a great collaboration!
