Why don't you run away and spend some time with me?
On this summer's day
There's nowhere else I'd rather be

Why don't we feel the way we used to anymore?
There's a place along the way
That maybe we could stay
And listen to the waves at my front door

You've been thinking 'bout some things we used to do
Thinking 'bout when life was still in front of you
Back where you belong, our favorite song
Won't you listen?

Don't you understand the words
Are singing in the wind
I wish that we could get from there to back again

The clouds are breaking
It's a beautiful day
For a wonderful pacific coast getaway

The sun is shining, can we just find a way
If you just call, just fall, just fall
To the ground

Through our compromise, paradise is
Just another place up on the wall

Through the common sense of it all
We had a lot to live, we gave it all
Through the consequence of the wine
Another place in time

    General CommentCan't stop listening to this one, it's another Brian Wilson masterpiece. Would have fit in easily on Pet Sounds.
