  • (EP Version)
    2 bar drum
    Mm over 8 bars

    VERSE 1
    I see the leaves, falling down
    And darker days, coming round
    I close my eyes and see you
    The ocean waves and skies of blue

    CHORUS 1
    The wind in my hair, the taste of salty air
    The sun on my skin, makes me think of where we've been
    (repeat)
    The sun on my skin, makes me think of where we've been
    —4 bar guitar break—(come back in on pickup to beat 4)

    VERSE 2
    And here I am, sitting down
    I'm making dreams years from now
    If only life was so sweet,
    I'd be dancing on my feet

    CHORUS 2
    Days without you, I just don't know what to doooooo
    It makes me feel sad, when I think of what we had
    Days without you, I just don't know what to do
    It makes me feel sad, when I think of what we had
    —4 bar guitar break—
    La la leh lay-yah leh-lay-ya
    La la leh lay-yah leh-lay-ya

    BREAKDOWN 2x
    Sun turning red
    Stars peaking through
    Long road ahead,
    And all I think about is you
    Sun turning red
    Stars peaking through
    Long road ahead,
    And all I think about is you

    CHORUS 1 & 2
    The wind in my hair, the taste of salty air
    The sun on my skin, makes me think of where we've been
    Days without you, I just don't know what to do
    It makes me feel sad,
    When I think of what we had
    When I think of what we had
    When I think of what we had. Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
