friend of a friend, is where it began meeting by chance, haphazard romance her smile was like sweet wine, he'd get drunk on her laugh the hangover was different this time, it was an image he had in the back of his mind, that slipped to his heart never felt sicker, then when they would part baby this ones forever, don't tell us never its a game we can't play, we'll play anyway, we'll play anyway baby this ones forever, It's been a long time coming so let's play, everyday... she's getting that feeling again, but she won't tell you my friend this love is for better days, she's sad when he goes away they met at a time, when their hands were tied but their heart strings got tangled, and soon intertwined then came the summer, when the world disappeared two people falling in love, and the only sound you could hear was them singing..... baby this ones forever, It's been a long time coming so let's play, everyday...

Goose Island on a summer night, gives me a feeling that I can't explain but I'll take you there if you can pull a sane Come on boys load em up, grab your stuff and head for the truck The sun is rising over Copano Bay bridge This is living, hanging with my pops This is living, fishing non stop This is living, where have those days gone Waking up with the sun on your face, like your in some kind of magical place Over my shoulder my dad's standing there, smile on his face, wind blowing through his long hair He whooped up breakfast on that electric griddle, spatula under his beard like he was playing a fiddle I approach the table with and ear to ear grin, its another episode of Attack of the Hand The Whole family's laughing just as loud as they can, Dad was pretty funny for a hard working man Come on boys load em up, grab your stuff and head for the truck We'll get some oysters and some blue crabs cause supper is near This is living, hanging with my pops This is living, fishing non stop This is living, where have those days gone We got some oysters and some blue crabs too, two keeper reds and a flounder to boot I have a feeling this will be a mighty fine meal Little sister has a god given talent, for picking a blue crab clean in under a minute She picks em like that Gulf of Mexico was going dry Come on boys load em up, grab your stuff and head for the truck We'll sane some bait and get that good spot down at the peer This is living, hanging with my pops This is living, fishing non stop This is living, where have those days gone This is living, hanging with my bros This is living, no body knows This is living, where have those days gone
