Time Flies

Album: Welcome to the Fishbowl (2012)
  • So you got a little heartbreak
    Feeling like a dumb chump
    Laying in left field
    Can't believe you got dumped
    Everything gone wrong
    But you're listening to the right song

    Grab yourself a cheap seat
    Floating or flying
    Anything southbound
    Heading to the islands
    Grab a little white sand
    Maybe get your blues tanned

    Riptides rippin'
    The sunset's dippin'
    You smile that smile
    Keep on sippin'

    Time flies
    Sitting in the sun
    When you're feeling numb
    Time flies
    When you're having rum
    When you're having rum

    Yeah, you find a little beach bar
    Down on the water
    Sail away the Captain
    Feeling Jolly Roger
    Talking to a cutie
    Heading for the booty

    Riptides rippin'
    The sunset's dippin'
    You smile that smile
    You'll be saying

    Time flies
    Sitting in the sun
    Yeah, when you're getting some
    Time flies
    When you're having rum
    When you're having rum

    Yeah

    Riptides rippin'
    The sunset's dippin'
    You smile that smile
    You'll be saying

    Time flies
    Yeah, when your in the sun
    Yeah, when you're feeling numb
    Time flies

    Time flies
    Sitting in the sun
    Yeah, when you're getting some

    Time flies
    When you're having rum
    When you're having rum
    When you're getting some
    When you're feeling numb Writer/s: CRAIG WISEMAN, STEVE MC EWAN
