"Deckchairs And Cigarettes" as written by Ben Carrigan, Conor Deasy, Kevin Horan, Padraic Garrett Mcmahon and Daniel Patrick Ryan....
Well what can you do
When all that surrounds you
So slow down
Deckchairs and cigarettes
They'll say, let's go to San Diego
Where all the crazy kids go
Just don't change a thing
Just don't change a thing
Just don't change a thing

Well then ? fell in love
On our summer
But we knew, what we got ourselves into

They'll say, let's go to San Diego
Where all the crazy kids go
Just don't change a thing
Just don't change a thing
Just don't change a thing

They'll say, let's go to San Diego
Where all the crazy kids go
You build me up so high, my darling
You bring me down so low, you know it
You build me up so high, my darling
You bring me down so low, you know it
Just don't change a thing
Just don't change a thing
Just don't change a thing

    General CommentI really, really like this song-- I've just recently discover The Thrills through a friend.. and since no one has posted on this song... I guess I will!!!

    I might be wayyy off here.. but I have this feeling that it's about the first summer apart. Two people-- lovers?-- having to seperate. They don't want anything to change between them. Not their relationship.. not eachother's personalities. NOTHING! One of them is thinking that it's a way safer idea to just spend the summer together in San Deigo, but the other one isn't going for it.
    I don't really know.. alright.

    My favorite part "You build me up so high . . . You bring me down so low"

    -- I hope their relationship didn't change

    General Commentthey sing about california all the time because when they got signed they just up and left ireland and went to california to live in a hut down by the beach and record this album. thats why a lot of the album has a very beachy feel to it.

    no idea what the song means though lol.
