Got a briefcase from work I left in the trunk
Thought I'd take this vacation and finally catch up
So I checked out the view, and let go of that ladder
I thought to myself, this is what matters
Got my eye on the kids makin' castles in the sand
Got my back in the chair with your hand in my hand
Couple umbrella drinks, and some shrimp cachgion platter
Hey this is the life, this is what matters

And I ain't gonna answer my cell phone
I don't care about goin' on line
The office, the boss, what this trip's gonna cost
Is the last thing on my mind

Let the kids fall asleep to that movie again
Talk on the balcony long as we can
I can't hardly wait, wish this night would come faster
Makin' love to you baby, yeah this is what matters

I wish these six days would stretch on and on
But I'll realize 5 days from now that they don't
And right now I'm soakin' up sun, love, and laughter
God help me remember this is what matters

When it's all said and done
Yeah, this is what matters
