well I got a secret
I think we could do without the bullsh-
when I was just trying to keep your attention sometimes, but sometimes
I lose my own

It's got me feeling like basketcase
life is rising complicated, I know
I'm not up right now to this or anything else

you don't know what it is about me
so watch your step let's be on our way
let's go today

CHORUS
down where the water's warmer down where the rhythm's slow
down where the wind is softer down we gotta go
down where the moon is higher down where the music's low
down where the mood is brighter down we gotta go

I'll waste an evening fighting income tax and it seems
that every morning comes a little more gray
I've got to find a little more space and time for you
and could you make a little space for me too

you don't know what it is about me
so watch your step let's be on our way
let's go today

CHORUS

you don't know why we move so quickly
so watch your step let's be on our way
let's go today

now when the world is sinking
we'll be the ocean climbing higher than the earth would have us go
and in the shade and drinking
summer breeze and daiquiris, and thinking now about the rules and sandwich making

I am the mystery you'll be wanting to be figuring out when it all comes down
I gotta suit and a case and a bag full of pesos and a ticket that says “wherever you want”
taking a bus I trust and it's gonna be us it's gonna be just us
bustin' out on the sand I gotta plan to see we are gonna be rustin'

CHORUS
