Ted Leo & The Pharmacists – La Costa Brava lyrics

I've been seeing the same old things
And I've been hearing you saying
Some things that you don't mean
Everyone needs a Sunday some days

Everyone needs to take some time away
So come on home from the front lines, baby
You know you've done more than your time
There was supposed to have been

A little time out could turn your head 'round
A little time out could lift us our of the mess we're in
And down by the beach there's a small cafe
Where we'll hang on for Joan and drink Monet all day

So come on over to St. Feliu 'cause it's somewhere I've been
And I want to take you there
You know that waking up to the daily blues
From waking up to the daily news ain't nothing strange

Everyone gets to feeling weak
But if everyone gets to take a week and change their pace
You travel west 'til you hit Girona, I'll travel east out of Barcelona
And I'll meet you halfway

One day and night on La Costa Brava, we'll forget the fright
And remember why we want to be brave
(And that there's something to save)
Like down by the beach there's a veg cafe
Where we'll meet Lolo and Pablo and drink Moritz all day

So come on over to St. Feliu
'Cause it's somewhere I've been and I want to take you there
We'll meet Berta and Daniel and Remy Celine
And Mike Adriana, Padi and Aziz and Maurix, Maria and Laura
Tule and Sherry and Pau, Jodie and Paul

I hope Neil is okay
