So far, so long, came to the sea
Bald head, all of them, everyone's there
Grey eyes, sporting life, down to the sea
Golden, what's the name, came through the snow
Wake up, a time to go, everyone's there
Star light, should I try, down to the sea
All of them, so am I, so I don't know

There's one to go, they never mind, they lost this place
We all feel fine, the pressure's on, the national
There's one to go, the same is true, and all this time
We couldn't forget you

Golden, what's the name, down to the sea
All of them, so am I, down to the sea
There's one to go, it seems to me, they never mind
They lost this place, we all feel fine, the pressure's on
The national, there's one to go, the same is true
And all this time, we couldn't forget you

    General CommentIs this about a long-time group of friends going to the beach, thinking about one friend who fell away?

    I don't really care for The Sea and Cake's music, but this song really stands out. A+++++ Great track! Would listen again!
