lyrics

I think we both know,
You and I are nothing special.
You like me around,
But you don't think that I've got potential.

And I think you are fine,
But I don't find that we're connecting.
We're each a memory,
The other of us is out collecting.

Come with me,
On a trip,
And we'll pretend to be,
Deep in love,
As we sip,
One rum drink after another.

Watching the sun slip,
Into the Caribbean Sea,
And acting as if neither is aware,
That neither of us actually cares,
For the other.

Let’s delay the end,
Continue this aimless diversion.
A long weekend of pretend,
A sham romantic beach excursion.

Come with me,
On a trip,
And we'll pretend to be,
Deep in love,
As we sip,
One rum drink after another.

Watching the sun slip,
Into the Caribbean Sea,
And acting as if neither is aware,
That neither of us actually cares,
For the other.

Clear blue waters, palm trees and white sands
We'll sail among the islands with no plans
Small umbrellas lodged in exotic fruit
High-end dining in our bathing suits

All while we try to be unaware,
That you and I, we aren't going anywhere.

Come with me,
On a trip,
And we'll pretend to be,
Deep in love,
As we sip,
One rum drink after another.

Watching the sun slip,
Into the Caribbean Sea,
And acting as if neither is aware,
That neither of us actually cares,
For the other.

Reunited years later in California, the two started developing new material in basements and spare rooms, eventually adding Travis Hanna on bass, Jeff Worrall on trumpet, Ethan Levitt on sax, and Matt McLean on guitar. ... more
