lyrics

I remember the first beach,
I will always remember
We decided to settle there,
I think was late September
That winter was bonfires in the beach late into the dawn
And when the fire went out,
It was time to walk home
But when the summer came we were almost never inside
I remember the sunlight, and the waves of joy in your eyes

Good god! My Beach baby Babylon
The road we traveled down, couldn't last for long
Love could never be as easy as, you use to make it look
I thank you for the time we had, you were always the best chapter in my book

I would wake up to hear your sandal,
knocking against the bedroom door
The sound of your feet as they dragged sand
Across my hardwood floors.

Then I would smell those crazy meals, you used to cook
Weather it was omelettes with a glass of wine or pancakes with a smoke
Moonlit Walks upon the beach, you knew it would have to end,
Still I told you I'd always love you and I swear I always have

Good god! My Beach baby Babylon
The road we wandered down, couldn't last for long
Love could never be as easy as, you use to make it look
I thank you for the time we had, you were greatest chapter in my book

Never let another man say he had you in your prime
Because I know that were at your best when I could call you mine
We use to Hear the ocean roar, as we made love beneath the moon
I miss you like the summer warmth, more than the month of June
Now I cannot smile, as the sun-sets below the mist
That violet sky reminds me only of our last kiss

Good god! My Beach baby Babylon
The road we traveled down, couldn't last for long
Love could never be as easy as, you use to make it look
I thank you for the time we shared, you’re still the greatest chapter in my book
