"At the Beach" as written by and Timothy Seth Avett Scott Yancey Avett....
I know that you're smiling, baby
I don't even need to see your face
Sunset at the shoreline, we are laughing, breaking up
Just like the waves
Are you feeling, feeling, feeling like I'm, feeling
Like I'm floating, floating, up above that big blue ocean
Sand beneath our feet, big blue sky above our heads
No need to keep the stressing from our everyday life on our minds
We have got to leave all that behind

Well, I have got a sister
And she has got a baby with brand new eyes
And her daddy is an engineer
And they just took her to the sea for the first time
Now they're under, under, underneath a big umbrella
Summer, summer, summer time to help us forget, nine to fives
We have got to leave all that behind

I have worries to give to the sea
We can walk dear the pier is farther than it seems

Midnight at the shoreline, fireworks above us
A screaming bloom
They're sent by some teenager and kid whoever you are
I am thanking you
Now we're dancing, dancing, dancing with no music
What is happening, happening, happening and no feelings
Except this is right
We just had to leave all that behind

    General CommentThis song literally makes me feel like i'm dancing through some alternate version of life, while the sky is forever turning into some heavenly color. Feeling that way is just fine by me.

    General CommentI heard this and almost fell out of my chair.

    Why? Not only is it the most fun and cheery song ever, but me and my bestfriend were talking about going to see the sunset on the shoreline.... we live far away from each other....

    This song just warms your soul.
