Carry this picture for luck
Kept in a locket
Tucked in your coller
Close to your chest
Make it a secret
Shown to the closest friends
And meet me at quarter to 7
The sun will still shine then
At this time of year
We'll head to the inlet
And we'll share a bottle there

And color the coast with your smile
Its the most genuine thing
That I've ever seen
I was so lost
But now I believe

And follow me south of the big docks
They teather the boats
The rich men revere
As so important
They hire our fathers to steer
And down to the edge of the water
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
Its the most genuine thing
That I've ever seen
I was so lost
But now I believe
And the coast
Your smile is the most genuine thing
That I've ever seen
I was so lost
But now I believe
And I believe
Now I believe
Now I believe
