Charted: 18
  • Gonna put the world away for a minute
    Pretend I don't live in it
    Sunshine gonna wash my blues away
    Had sweet love but I lost it
    She got too close so I fought it
    Now I'm lost in the world tryin' to find me a better way

    Wishin' I was
    Knee deep in the water somewhere
    Got the blue sky, breeze and it don't seem fair
    The only worry in the world
    Is the tide gonna reach my chair
    Sunrise, there's a fire in the sky
    Never been so happy
    Never felt so high
    And I think I might have found me my own kind of paradise

    Wrote a note, said "Be back in a minute"
    Bought a boat and I sailed off in it
    Don't think anybody's gonna miss me anyway
    Mind on a permanent vacation
    The ocean is my only medication
    Wishin' my condition ain't ever gonna go away

    'Cause now I'm knee deep in the water somewhere
    Got the blue sky breeze blowin' wind through my hair
    Only worry in the world
    Is the tide gonna reach my chair
    Sunrise, there's a fire in the sky
    Never been so happy
    Never felt so high
    And I think I might have found me my own kind of paradise

    This champagne shore watchin' over me
    It's a sweet sweet life livin' by the salty sea
    One day you can be as lost as me
    Change your geography and maybe you might be

    Knee deep in the water somewhere
    Got the blue sky breeze blowin' wind through my hair
    Only worry in the world
    Is the tide gonna reach my chair
    Sunrise, there's a fire in the sky
    Never been so happy
    Never felt so high
    And I think I might have found me my own kind of paradise

    Come on in
    The waters nice
    Find yourself a little slice
    Grab a backpack
    Otherwise you'll never know until you try
    When you lose yourself
    You find a key to paradise Writer/s: COY BOWLES, ZAC BROWN, WYATT DURRETTE, JEFFREY STEELE
