Tuesday Tunes: KNEE DEEP

Oh, summer. Why do you have to come to a close? Your warmth and sunshine bring such cheer. Your long daylight hours motivate me into productivity. Your vibrant flowers and green grass and clear skies make me smile.  Your lax attitude and slow pace are greatly appreciated. I’ve enjoyed you far more than I can express with words.

Summer, you are my very favorite season, and this year you began far too late. You’ve only graced the Pacific Northwest with your loveliness for a few short weeks. I’m not ready to say goodbye. Next June seems eons away.

Perhaps Zac Brown, Jimmy Buffet, and their feel-good song Knee Deep will grant me the strength I’ll surely need to endure nine months of soggy gray rain before your radiant sun peeks through the clouds again. At the very least, I’ll have the catchy, whistled melody of Knee Deep stuck in my head until we meet again next year, Summer.

Gonna put the world away for a minute 
Pretend I don’t live in it 
Sunshine gonna wash my blues away 

Had sweet love but I lost it 
She got too close so I fought her 
Now I’m lost in the world trying to find me a better way 

Wishing I was knee deep in the water somewhere 
Got the blue sky breeze and it don’t seem fair 
Only worry in the world is the tide gonna reach my chair 
Sunrise there’s a fire in the sky 
Never been so happy 
Never felt so high 
And I think I might have found me my own kind of paradise 

Wrote a note said be back in a minute 
Bought a boat and I sailed off in it 
Don’t think anybody gonna miss me anyway 

Mind on a permanent vacation 
The ocean is my only medication 
Wishing my condition ain’t ever gonna go away 

Cause now I’m knee deep in the water somewhere 
Got the blue sky breeze blowing wind through my hair 
Only worry in the world is the tide gonna reach my chair 
Sunrise there’s a fire in the sky 

Never been so happy 
Never felt so high 
And I think I might have found me my own kind of paradise 

This champagne shore washing over me 
It’s a sweet life living by the salty sea 
One day you could be as lost as me 
Change you’re geography 
Maybe you might be 

Knee deep in the water somewhere 
Got the blue sky breeze blowing wind through my hair 
Only worry in the world is the tide gonna reach my chair 
Sunrise there’s a fire in the sky 
Never been so happy 
Never felt so high 
And I think I might have found me my own kind of paradise 

Come on in the water it’s nice 
Find yourself a little slice 
Grab a backpack of lies 
You never know until you try 
When you lose yourself 
You find the key to paradise
