  • Afternoon low tide, workin' my plan
    Got one hand in the water, the other in the sand
    Two beers in a cooler, one warm heart in place
    Got a picture in a bottle, one nailed up to a palm tree
    One out in the wind and they all look like me
    I want somebody to be the feeling's all over my face

    Oh, I've never been more ready than I am right now
    I know sooner or later, someday, somehow
    Somebody's gonna walk up
    And join somebody sittin' right here
    So wherever, whoever you are the coast is clear

    I close my eyes and the sound of the waves
    Carries me forward to better days
    And they open my eyes to the woman of my dreams strolling in
    With a small touch of shyness and a smooth kind of style
    She kisses me on the cheek and she says with a smile
    "I've been waiting all my life for you baby, where have you been?"

    Oh, I've never been more ready than I am right now
    I know sooner or later, someway, somehow
    Somebody's gonna walk up
    And join somebody sittin' right here
    So wherever, whoever you are the coast is clear

    Girl, wherever, whoever you are the coast is clear
    Afternoon low tide, I'm just workin' my plan
    Right now, right here the coast is clear oh, yeah
