(Hillary Lindsey/Blair Daly/Troy Verges)

Called in sick to the coffee shop
Said let's go someplace the weather is hot
Buy two plane tickets and call the yellow cab
Drank all our money in beach side bars
Took pictures of each other smoking cheap cigars
Stole a blanket from the hotel room and slept on the sand

We held the world like a glass of lemonade
It tasted sweet, oh man, we had it made

Chorus:
Didn't we laugh, weren't we brave?
Wasn't it cool, acting like fools
With nothing in our way
Picture in a frame, deep blue sky
You and I, stuck in time, like we would never fade
Baby, why'd we have to change?

Did we get older, too grown up
To do anything, just because
Just because we just don't give a damn?
Oh, when did we get so serious
What happened to that part of us
Baby can you help me, I just don't understand

We held the world like a glass of lemonade
Tasted sweet, oh man, we had it made

(Repeat chorus)

Look at us in that photograph, so beautifully naive
I want it back

(Repeat chorus)

Let's call in sick, leave this town
Don't matter where we go, let's just go now
I'm thirsty for a glass of lemonade
