"Knee Deep" as written by and Zac Brown Wyatt Durrette....
Gonna put the world away for a minute
Pretend I don't live in it
Sunshine gonna wash my blues away
Had sweet love but I lost it
She got too close so I fought it
Now I'm lost in the world tryin' to find me a better way

Wishin' I was
Knee deep in the water somewhere
Got the blue sky, breeze and it don't seem fair
The only worry in the world
Is the tide gonna reach my chair
Sunrise, there's a fire in the sky
Never been so happy
Never felt so high
And I think I might have found me my own kind of paradise

Wrote a note, said "Be back in a minute"
Bought a boat and I sailed off in it
Don't think anybody's gonna miss me anyway
Mind on a permanent vacation
The ocean is my only medication
Wishin' my condition ain't ever gonna go away

'Cause now I'm knee deep in the water somewhere
Got the blue sky breeze blowin' wind through my hair
Only worry in the world
Is the tide gonna reach my chair
Sunrise, there's a fire in the sky
Never been so happy
Never felt so high
And I think I might have found me my own kind of paradise

This champagne shore watchin' over me
It's a sweet sweet life livin' by the salty sea
One day you can be as lost as me
Change your geography and maybe you might be

Knee deep in the water somewhere
Got the blue sky breeze blowin' wind through my hair
Only worry in the world
Is the tide gonna reach my chair
Sunrise, there's a fire in the sky
Never been so happy
Never felt so high
And I think I might have found me my own kind of paradise

Come on in
The waters nice
Find yourself a little slice
Grab a backpack
Otherwise you'll never know until you try
When you lose yourself
You find a key to paradise

    General CommentI look at this as someone is trying to get over someone, and so, wants to go somewhere and be "knee deep" in water where he can forget her.

    I must say, I wish I were knee deep, wandering if the tide will reach my chair.

    General CommentPretty much an improvement on the Jimmy Buffet-esque "Where the Boat Leaves From"

    ...

    it has Jimmy on the track!
    Seriously, though, very catchy song that's just easy to listen to

    My InterpretationIt's about a person who is tired of the bitter cold winter weather and is wishing that they could be anywhere that is hot all year. Everyone in the Eastern and Middle parts of the United States must be wishing the same thing that the Zac Brown Band and Jimmy Buffet are wishing in this song. It doesn't seem fair that we have to have all the cold and snow while the West get all the sun.

    My Interpretation"When you lose yourself
    You find a key to paradise"

    LOL. It's a song about "flow", isn't it? :)

    "In positive psychology, flow, also known as the zone, is the mental state of operation in which a person performing an activity is fully immersed in a feeling of energized focus, full involvement, and enjoyment in the process of the activity. In essence, flow is characterized by complete absorption in what one does. Named by Mihály Csíkszentmihályi, the concept has been widely referenced across a variety of fields (and has an especially big recognition in Occupational Therapy), though has existed for thousands of years under other guises, notably in some Eastern religions. Achieving flow is often colloquially referred to as being in the zone..."
