"Coppertone" as written by and Forrest Kline....
Patiently
I've waited patiently
Hoping that you'd believe
That the lights in our eyes
Are not fading out
They're not yet fading out
Somehow we're safe and sound
Like the glow of the shore
We will hurry

What could I ever do?
What could I say?
To cover up my concerns?
To keep them at bay?
Oh, then she said, "You spend too much time in your head."
What could I ever do?
What could I say so carefully?

Carefully
I followed carefully
Too scared of us and me
So I'll wait on the sand with her Coppertone
Yeah, she put on Coppertone
And went out there all alone
Never one to be scared or to worry

What could I ever do?
What could I say?
To cover up my concerns?
To keep them at bay?
Oh, then she said, "You spend too much time in your head."
What could I ever do?
What could I say so carefully?

What could I ever do?
Oh, what could I say?
To cover up my concerns?
To keep them at bay?
Oh, then she said, "You spend too much time in your head."
What could I ever do?
Oh, what could I say so carefully?

    General Comment"joe wrote most of these words so i should let him write this one.

    hi. joe here. when forrest approached me about writing the lyrics for this song i was a little apprehensive because musically it was already one of my favorite songs on the record and i didn't want to muck it up. but because of that very reason, i really wanted to be a part of it lyrically and decided to give it a shot. the lyrics have a nautical / lighthouse theme because i love the imagery of a rocky new england shore. so beautiful and inviting but dangerous and unpredictable at he same time. the second theme is my general neurosis. i spend a lot of time worrying over things that may have not even happened. i feel like in my relationship, i'm often over thinking situations while Holly, my fiance, is strong and confident. basically, i need to spend less time analyzing things in my head and just enjoy every moment."
