Track Name: Sand in My Sheets
Open my eyes to an early sunrise
Clear blue skies so it's time to check the tide
Grab my board then I'm headed out the door
If you need to find me I'll be chillin' at the shore

Sand in my sheets but I still fell asleep
Dreamin' about tonight and the sunset on the beach
I close my eyes, she's everything I see
On the shoreline just my girl and me

Cruisin' along listenin' to the stereo
This has got to be the greatest feeling that I know
Falling in love, falling for that special girl
This has got to be the best feeling in the world

Sand in my sheets but I still fell asleep
Dreamin' about tonight and the sunset on the beach
I close my eyes, she's everything I see
On the shoreline just my girl and me
Take it Nate...

Well it makes no sense at all how the living is so easy
But the parking is so hard in my own backyard
And all bets are off if you're coming up from out of town
Get your greeting with the beat down, beat down
Lucky for me when I wake in the dawn
Grab my ukulele and I step on the lawn
Hurry it up 'til I'm down on the beach
Skip to my step with a reggae stylie and a

Pacific Ocean air and Catalina is coming in so clear
And tomorrow is going to be the same
Tomorrow is going to be the same
Tomorrow tomorrow is another day
Well today if you're waiting for something to change
Tomorrow is going to be the same
Tomorrow is going to be the same

Sand in my sheets but I still fell asleep
Dreamin' about tonight and the sunset on the beach
I close my eyes, she's everything I see
On the shoreline just my girl and me

Sand in my sheets but I still fell asleep
On the shoreline just my girl and me
Track Name: In With the Newport
Yeah I'm up at Rudy's, headed to Malarky's
If I get too desperate, catch my face at Sharkeez
I'm the new Sugar Ray but a little less gay
They love me on the beach side all the way to the bay
I used to surf at Blackies 'til it got too crowded
Over by the jetty they got that shit surrounded
There's a lot of phonies claiming locals only
They say "Hey Nate Frogg!" but you don't really know me

Why can't we all get along
Board that is
Spending money on tryin' to be cool and belong
'Til you can't afford what is
Cuz ya know it's kind of funny how I spend my money
Livin' on the beach where the sun is so sunny
But if you stop by I won't even be home
Cuz I'm working at my job all day long

Out with the old and in with the Newport
Down on the beach yeah you know what we're lookin' for
Out with the old and in with the Newport
Down on the beach yeah you know now you know

Pump! Pump!
Pump Pump!

Cruisin' on the boardwalk, Yeah I got my bike lock
If you hear a knock knock, open up it's Nate Frogg
I know I'm kind of tardy, here to start the party
Beer pong, RVCA shirt, bottle of Bicardi
Shoutin' "Ribbit! Ribbit!" Yeah I know we get it
Forget to pay the meter 50 dollar ticket
Lighten up I lit it, brighten up I hit it
Livin' on the beach you know I found a way and did it

Newport Beach that's how we roll Ay!
Listen to the music cuz it's bound to soothe your soul
How much do you want it, pay the cover at the door
Let's meet up tomorrow we can chill out at the shore like

Out with the old and in with the Newport
Down on the beach yeah you know what we're lookin' for
Out with the old and in with the Newport
Down on the beach yeah you know now you know

Pump! Pump!
Pump Pump!

Sunny side tirade, lookin' like we got it made
Sittin' in the shade and sippin' on my lemonade
Cerveza or burrito, pass the Tapatio
Stuffin' it so fast you think it's only a taquito
And I'll never trade my sandals for sneakers
Tubin' so much like I got scientific beakers
Think I found the antidote somewhere in this song I wrote
Sing the words and hold this note
Hurry or we'll miss the boat
Set sail!

Out with the old and in with the Newport
Down on the beach yeah you know what we're lookin' for
Out with the old and in with the Newport
Down on the beach yeah you know now you know

Pump! Pump!
Pump Pump!

Yeeeeeaaaaah. Yeah.
Ruff!
Track Name: When Will I See You Again
Yeah woke up kind of late today
But it doesn't seem to help pass the time away
While I'm away from you seems like there's nothin'
Nothin' I can do, but just think of you

When will I see you again
Just like old times and when
When will I see you again
So the good times can begin
When will I see you again
Mm mm mm
When will I see you again

Well this happened before
So I guess what I'm tryin' to say is I'll be fine
Nothin' no not nothin' is going to bring me down
So I guess I'll survive yeah

When will I see you again
Just like old times and when
When will I see you again
So the good times can begin
When will I see you again
Mm mm mm
When will I see you again

Alright here we go

When will I see you again
Just like old times and when
When will I see you again
So the good times never end
When will I see you again
Just like old times and when
When will I see you again
So the good times never end
Track Name: Just Take It Easy
We got a world full of right and wrong
But I prefer just writin' songs
Kick back and just get along
Just take it easy

Never understood why all the time people gettin' caught up
In the newest thing, guess they're lookin' for love
Should've tried looking for someone instead of something
And maybe you can tell me why
People staring straight up to the heavens
Want to get this thing right, live forever
Alright, you better get started sometime this life

We got a world full of right and wrong
But I prefer just writin' songs
Kick back and just get along
Just take it easy

Never understood why all the people at the bottom
Lookin' up to the big egos on TV shows
I know I prefer the non-fiction kind of life

I think gettin' it right is the hardest part
Maybe that's just why it's not the best place to start
I think gettin' it right is the hardest part
Maybe that's just why it's not a good place to start

Maybe time is running out
Maybe the only time we got is now
I think the people that got it figured out
Ain't very pleasing
Already we've got a world full of right and wrong
But I prefer just writin' songs
Kick back and just get along
Just take it easy easy oooo
Track Name: Toast to the Coast
My little beach fire is burnin' and the night is fallin' in
I got smoke in my lungs, sunburn on my skin
Tired enough to get crazy, crazy
Dig a little deeper into the warming sand
Constellations above, cerveza in hand
Thirsty enough to get crazy

And so I lift up a toast to the California coast
Where the baddest and the best get crazy
Where the people listen up all the beaches and the bums
And the working men want to get lazy

Shirt off my back, sun on my skin
Fed up enough to
Crack open a fresh one, but the law is coming near
So we bury up the fire, stuff my backpack with beer
O you got to break the rules if you want to break free
I got the rangers and the rat race chasing after me
But what without friends would the situation be
When the going gets rough at least the chillin's easy

So I lift up a toast to the California coast
Where the baddest and the best get crazy
Where the people listen up all the beaches and the bums
And the working men want to get lazy
Shirt off my back, sun on my skin
They got no time to get lazy

So I mapped out the coast line, searching every hiding place
And I found a vacancy here in this open sea cave
My little beach fire is burnin' and the night is falling in
I got smoke in my lungs and hot sunburn on my skin

So I lift up a toast to the California coast
Where the baddest and the best get crazy
Where the people listen up all the beaches and the bums
And the working men want to get lazy
Yeah I lift another toast to the California coast
Where the surfers and the stoners get crazy
Where the people listen up all the beaches and the bums
And the working men want to get lazy
Shirt off my back, sun on my skin
They got no time to get lazy

All the chicas get their freak on on the outside of town
There's a little ex pat bar where they pump up the reggae sound
Pump!
If I was in your hometown
It would be packed every morning, every evening, and every night
Pump!
If I was in your hometown
I would be walkin' that direction, I'd be playing my acoustic guitar
Pump!
Best we listen up and listen up and take my advice
The livin's so easy livin' by the sea side
And I know you know I ain't got to lie
Cuz I know you know you won't take my advice

And so I lift another toast to the California coast
Where the baddest and the best get crazy
Where the people listen up all the beaches and the bums
And the working men want to get lazy
Yeah I lift another toast to the California coast
Where the surfers and the stoners get lazy
Every morning the commute is an easy thing to do
Beach bound down PCH
I got my board in the back, sun on my skin
I got no time to get paid
Yeah
Track Name: Fool
Right now I'm about to tear it up with you
Cuz right now I'm about to live it up live it up with you
Oooo oo oo oooo
Oooo oo oo oo
I've been playin', I've been playin' myself up like I'm a fool
Oooo oo oo oooo
Oooo oo oo oo
I've been playin', I've been playin' myself up like I'm a fool

I know it's gettin' late
And I really like the things you've got to say
I'm beggin' you to stay
I just do it in my own particular way
Focusing on everything, can't wait for what the daylight brings
We could live it up like kings, ever and after
Offering you everything, even when the sadness stings
I lift you up with guitar strings and make it laughter
Oooo oo oo oooo
Oooo oo oo oo
I've been playin', I've been playin' myself up like I'm a fool
Oooo oo oo oooo
Oooo oo oo oo
I've been playin', I've been playin' myself up like I'm a fool

And when my wave comes I'm so ready to fall, I'm so ready to fall
Spotlight on my shame now, I'm so ready to fall, I'm so ready to fall
Oooo oo oo oooo
Oooo oo oo oo
I've been playin', I've been playin' myself up like I'm a fool
Oooo oo oo oooo
Oooo oo oo oo
I've been playin', I've been playin' myself up like I'm a fool
Track Name: Shark Harbor Lullaby
We've been far across the ocean
Went by car and boat and bus
But so far I'm feelin' closer than we've ever been before
Traveled all along the coastline to our little island cove
All along this world keeps pushing on but we've been moving slow

Settled in beside a beach fire, dug our feet deep in the sand
Settlin' for city livin' is something I can't understand
We've been up and down this coastline, we've seen all the big time lights
Until now I never noticed how many stars are in the sky

Someday we'll think about these days
And if home is just a place then why are we only visiting
The sun and the waves, the melodies we've made
All the memories we maybe need to make again

Yesterday the next cove over, swimmin' naked in the sea
With a smile as bright as our tan lines, just my girl and me
Through the wind and rain and thunder our little tent still stood
As the morning broke and we awoke the storm had left for good
We've been meeting all the locals, all the lobsters and the fish
So we swam right up and puckered up to greet them with a kiss

Someday we'll think about these days
And if home is just a place then why are we only visiting
The sun and the waves, the melodies we've made
All the memories we maybe need to make them
Oo maybe we could make them again

We've been far across the ocean
Went by car and boat and bus
But so far I'm feelin' closer than we've ever been before
Track Name: Weather the Storm
Taking a walk around town
Daydreaming to the sounds
Sun is setting in my head
Riptide is pulling me to bed
I wish I could fly and I could chase all the clouds away
Break away and make into another sunny day
The kind that makes you jump for joy out of your bed
But we could toy around and lay around so lazy instead
Like we we're dreamin' of palm trees in the wind
I lay it back, I play it back
Again and again, again and again, again and again

Sail, sail away with me
We'll leave our luxuries
And throw them to the sea ayy
And we with the rollin' tide
Will wash our worries dry
Anchored by my side ayy

Follow me to the shore
I've got what you're lookin' for
We could share this shelter from the storm
Palm frond, fire's on just to keep you warm
Weather the storm whether or not you're all that I got
And all I need and you're so much more, so much more
Yeah yeah you're so much more, so much more

Sail, sail away with me
We'll leave our luxuries
And throw them to the sea ayy
And we with the rollin' tide
Will wash our worries dry
Anchored by my side ayy
We, we can weather the storm
Together we're something more
Resting on the shore

Sail, sail away with me
We'll leave our luxuries
And throw them to the sea ayy
And we with the rollin' tide
Will wash our worries dry
Anchored by my side ayy
We, we can weather the storm
Whether or not you're all that I got
All I need and so much more
So much more, so much more
Yeah yeah you're so much more, so much more
So much more, so much more,
Yeah yeah you're so much more, so much more
