When you leave this coast
Take me with you
'Cause I can’t live with your ghost
She’s too much like you
She’s building pyramids on water skis
And we both know that I’ve got bad knees
Some tricks I won’t do
So I’m swimming back to you

Soaking wet
And fully intercoastal
But I still can’t forget
Your farewell toast,
You were down on the beach
With bright red knees
When you dropped anchor and you dropped me
Now my flag flies blue
So I’m swimming back to you

You’re made of water
I’m made of sand
Don’t grit your teeth
Just let me kiss your
Watery hands

Stop washing me away

You’re made of water
I’m made of sand
Don’t grit your teeth
Just let me kiss your
Watery hands

Stop washing me away

    CORRECTED LYRICS: When you leave this coast Take me with you Because I can’t live with your ghost She’s too much like you She’s building pyramids on water skis And we both know that I’ve got bad knees Some tricks I won’t do So I’m swimming back to you

    Soaking wet And fully intercoastal But I still can’t forget Your farewell toast, You were down on the beach With bright red knees And when you dropped anchor you dropped me Now my flag flies blue So I’m swimming back to you

    You’re made of water I’m made of sand Don’t grit your teeth Just let me kiss your Watery hands

    Stop washing me away

    You’re made of water I’m made of sand Don’t grit your teeth Just let me kiss your Watery hands

    Stop washing me away

    There are a few errors in your lyrics that I've noticed: "Sunken wet" = "soaking wet" "don't quit your teeth" = "don't grit your teeth" "Stop Watch and Do It" = "Stop washing me away"

    Great song.
