  • Drove 75 on cruise control
    Down 65 'til I hit the coast
    Thought maybe here I could let you go
    Local tequila, salt and lime
    Been helping me leave your memory behind
    But it just keeps rolling back with the tide
    Yeah
    Way out there, there's a boat and I wish I was on it
    So, I could tie an anchor to this heartache and watch it
    Sink with the sun
    Fade into black
    But I'm watching it rise
    Salt in my eyes
    And I still want you back
    I guess there's no better place than paradise to get over someone
    So, I'll stay here, feet in the sand
    Drink in my hand 'til you sink with the sun
    The skies are clear and so is the sea
    Lonely rolls in on an ocean breeze
    The only thing missing is you next to me
    Yeah
    Then the reds set fire to a blue horizon
    And I took another sip hoping your goodbye would
    Sink with the sun
    Fade into black
    But I'm watching it rise
    Salt in my eyes
    And I still want you back
    I guess there's no better place than paradise to get over someone
    So, I'll stay here, feet in the sand
    Drink in my hand 'til you sink with the sun
    Way out there, there's a boat and I wish I was on it
    So, I could tie an anchor to this heartache and watch it
    Sink with the sun (sink with the sun)
    Fade into black
    But I'm watching it rise
    Salt in my eyes
    And I still want you back (I still want you)
    I guess there's no better place than paradise to get over someone
    So, I'll stay here, feet in the sand
    Drink in my hand 'til you sink with the sun
