Carry this picture for luck
Kept in a locket, tucked in your collar
Close to your chest.
Make it a secret
Shown to the closest friends.
Meet me at quarter to seven,
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,
It's 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
Where they tether the boats
The rich men revere.
They're 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 ive ever seen.
I was so lost,
But now i believe
In the coast,
Your smile is the most genuine thing
That ive ever seen
I was so lost
But now i believe.
Now I believe.
Now I believe.
Now I believe.
