We'll head to the inlet. And we'll share a bottle there.

And color the coast with your smile

And follow me south of the big docks, where they tether the boats,
And the rich men revere as so important, they hire our fathers to steer.

Where we'll spill our guts,
And we'll name our fears. I'll give you this picture.
Keep it and don't be scared.

And color the coast with your smile.
It's the most genuine thing I've ever seen.
I was so lost, but now, I believe in the coast,
Your smile is the most genuine thing I've ever seen.
I was so lost, but now, I believe
