Beach Babe

[Verse 1]
It's high tide on the island
Salty air in high demand
Feel the ocean set you free
With each wave crashing in the sea

[Verse 2]
I've got a love deep in my soul
That I just can't control
I'll win one heart and lose it twice
Before you even realize

[Chorus]
I'm a beach babe (beach babe, baby)
And I won't stay (beach babe, baby)
If there isn't a warm sea spray
Every sunlit day
I'm a shore lover (shore lover, baby)
I don't run for cover (shore lover, baby)
At the height of summer
When the surf is the color
Of a vibrant blue jay

[Verse 3]
I'm the queen of my sandcastle
Building it was worth the hassle
Sand dollars won't buy you fame
But I'm rich in my heart just the same

[Verse 4]
Salt water runs through my veins
Trouble only restrains
I'd rather shake sand from my hair
Than to hang my head down in despair

[Chorus]
I'm a beach babe (beach babe, baby)
And I won't stay (beach babe, baby)
If there isn't a warm sea spray
Every sunlit day
I'm a shore lover (shore lover, baby)
I don't run for cover (shore lover, baby)
At the height of summer
When the surf is the color
Of a vibrant blue jay

[Chorus]
I'm a beach babe (beach babe, baby)
And I won't stay (beach babe, baby)
If there isn't a warm sea spray
Every sunlit day
I'm a shore lover (shore lover, baby)
I don't run for cover (shore lover, baby)
At the height of summer
When the surf is the color
Of a vibrant blue jay

Beaches and Bayous

[Verse 1]
He needs a break
How much more can he take at his pace?
The daily grind
Leaves him feeling blind with hot rage
Most of his time
Is spent deep in his mind in the clouds
Right down to it
In a New York minute he would flee
Change his scenery

[Chorus]
Beaches and Bayous
Appear in his dreams
Oh what he wouldn't give
To live out his schemes
Savor the tropical sun
And the stillness of the wetlands
His need for a thrill
Surely no one will understand

[Verse 2]
He took a swing
At the statewide evening lottery
He found a sweet girl
With a smile like pearls way uptown
Now I've heard him boast
They live on the Gulf Coast near Mobile
The swamp and the shore
Are now theirs to explore aimlessly
Serendipity

[Chorus]
Beaches and Bayous
Appear in his dreams
Oh what he wouldn't give
To live out his schemes
Savor the tropical sun
And the stillness of the wetlands
His need for a thrill
Surely no one will understand

[Bridge]
Isn't live grand?
The opposite of bland
When reality is greater than fantasy
Nothing could compare
Let the breeze take you there
All seems right with the world
When you live by the sea

[Chorus]
Beaches and Bayous
Appear in his dreams
Oh what he wouldn't give
To live out his schemes
Savor the tropical sun
And the stillness of the wetlands
His need for a thrill
Surely no one will understand

[Outro]
His need for a thrill
Surely no one will understand

Beneath Your Heart

[Verse 1]
You can stress about it, that won't help a bit
Sunday morning comes and you realize you never got the worst of it
You can read about it, that don't make it true
One day you'll back and realize you only ever do what works for you

[Pre-Chorus]
But soon you will see, and soon you are sure to fume
That your reality is off-key and is out of tune

[Chorus]
Behind closed doors the world seems flawless
A belief you have carried through life all the way from youth
Beneath your heart your soul seems hopeless
But there's nothing that could ever be farther from the truth

[Verse 2]
You can howl at the moon, until your voice is sore
But won't you understand who you pretend to be isn't really who you are?
You can switch words around, it's done endlessly
But the fact of the matter is no matter how you do it we will never agree

[Pre-Chorus]
But soon you will see, and soon you are sure to fume
That your reality is off-key and is out of tune

[Chorus]
Behind closed doors the world seems flawless
A belief you have carried through life all the way from youth
Beneath your heart your soul seems hopeless
But there's nothing that could ever be farther from the truth

[Outro]
Beneath your heart
Beneath your heart
Beneath your heart

Bimini Twist

[Verse 1]
So you want a drink that'll make you hum?
A shot of coconut water and a lot of rum
Take a slice of lime and squeeze it well
And pour it all in to an old conch shell
Not many know the drink exists
But they never do resist
Doing the Bimini Twist

[Verse 2]
Tie your line the best way you know
Hook your bait, and cast it slow
Be patient, yeah, just give it time
And soon you'll see them swimming down the old coastline
The waters ripple with tons of fish
You know, you'll hardly ever miss
Doing the Bimini Twist

[Chorus]
The Bimini Twist is something to see
Baby, that's where you'll find me
Shaking it left, and casting out right
And kicking back a few at the bar tonight
So come with me, and we'll free our souls
And let the good times roll
Yeah let the good times roll

[Verse 3]
Get out of your seat and kick off your shoes
What's the worst thing that can happen, you've got nothing to lose
Just move your hips, you can't go wrong
And dance with your baby all night long
About this night, you're sure to reminisce
My friend, I must insist, you do the Bimini Twist

[Chorus]
The Bimini Twist is something to see
Baby, that's where you'll find me
Shaking it left, and casting out right
And kicking back a few at the bar tonight
So come with me, and we'll free our souls
And let the good times roll
Yeah let the good times roll

Breathe Easy

[Chorus]
Breathe easy
Like a dream it flies away
While the morning stars sing
You forget everything
Like a well deserved mental holiday
Breathe easy

[Verse 1]
Take in the seabreeze
Drink it up
For you'll only be here for a while
Soon you'll be back to your daily grind
When you notice that you rarely crack a smile

[Chorus]
Breathe easy
Like a dream it flies away
While the morning stars sing
You forget everything
Like a well deserved mental holiday
Breathe easy

[Verse 2]
The alarm clock's ring
Wakes you up
And you struggle to get out of bed
You slowly raise your cup of coffee to your lips
And in the morning paper, this is what you read

[Chorus]
Breathe easy
Like a dream it flies away
While the morning stars sing
You forget everything
Like a well deserved mental holiday
Breathe easy

[Bridge]
The boss says if you're late again, you're fired
And you have three minutes to get across town
There's a point in life when you get inspired
To breathe in and breathe out and just slow down

[Verse 3]
Take in the seabreeze
Drink it up
For you're gonna be here for a while
You're never going back to your daily grind
When you notice now that all you do is smile

[Chorus]
Breathe easy
Like a dream it flies away
While the morning stars sing
You forget everything
Like a well deserved mental holiday
Breathe easy

[Chorus]
Breathe easy
Like a dream it flies away
While the morning stars sing
You forget everything
Like a well deserved mental holiday
Breathe easy

[Outro]
Breathe easy
Breathe easy
