The dimly lit walkways
and avenues.
Beneath bridges,
lead me through
dreamy days.
It's into the dark
everytime,
it's no wonder I lost my mind,
and my memory.

But I wouldn't have it any other way.
Wonder weary all along the empty streets.
And I don't mind my broken legs.

Walk myself home beneath the stars.
strolling along the ocean shore,
and I wish for tidal waves,
to carry me out to sea.
To an island that's all for me,
to fade away.

But I wouldn't have it any other way.
With no one there to tell me how to be.
I'll grow my hair down to my knees.

I'd befriend coconut trees.
the breeze,
breathe in through the sparkling seas.
Evaporating in the sun.
Is my number one,
Priority.

But I wouldn't have it any other way.
No I wouldn't have it any other way.
I wouldn't have it any other way.

    General Commentdude. why has nobody put anything about this song? it has to be one of std's best. What this album lacks in catchy tunes it more than makes up for with huge helpings of std honesty and poetry. This song is beautiful. about losing hope and finding yourself with no direction but (i think) wondering if that is that bad a way to feel. even though it plainly is. I totally identify with this song. Dude.(sigh)

    General CommentI agree with shatfield. This is my favorite song on the new album. I can't see why no one is commenting on it. The guitar riff to this is so soothing.

    General CommentCoconut is beautiful I love it, I really don't understand why it wasn't placed on a real album, it's amazing. I think Chris was just frustrated with all the ups and downs of life, and people telling him what to do, so he painted a metaphor of going to a desert island where he can do whatever he wanted and not have anything or anybody pushing him to be somewhere. I think he was fed up with responsibility.

    General Commenthow has this album not been commented on at all - i cant understand how any fan can disrespect a band who continue to develop their sound.

    "No I wouldn't have it any other way.
    I wouldn't have it any other way."

    the last four songs on this album are awesome as they just blend into one. i think its just about wanting to be alone for a bit cos everyone needs their personal space. the guitar is amazing like the strings are just hanging off loosely. a great song, great album and great band. thankyou.
