The sun sinks behind me in the west
This is the time of day I love best
Salt breezes murmur through the coconut palm
As the colors change, they set a scene of tropic calm

Seagulls headed back to land
Over the mangrove and the salt pan
By a lazy creek with a six pack and a fishin’ line
Win back some memories and losin’ track of time

I head a little further north each year
Leave the cities behind, out of sight out of mind
Up where my troubles can all disappear
I head a little further north each year

Feeling the night wrap around me
Eases my mind’s serenity
Ocean waves are hummin’ on the outer reef
These balmy days and sultry nights are a welcome relief

I head a little further north each year
Leave the cities behind, out of sight out of mind
Up where my troubles can all disappear
I head a little further north each year

I head a little further north each year
Taking my mind to an easier time,
Up where there’s silence and the night sky is clear
I head a little further north each year.
