This is not your typical beach day
When you run through the sand, you’re running through all the suns rays
A fog runs thick
It makes you forget
Just where you fit
Inside all these typical weekdays

When you uncover all those questions
The kind that reach up behind ya and try to best ya
You find out where they hid
Found the door where they live
While you fumble through reasons
there’s an answer that fits
Are you open to its lesson?

There’s a deal
To make it real
You’ve got to take your punches
Your fight,
Will work through the night
You’ve got to dig your trenches right
Your home, is a story that’s born
and shows us how you worked your way through what is wrong and what is right.

I know you better than you know
I know your heart before they break-in
And try to take it
Find the words to say
And play the part
I know you better than you know
I know your cards before you play them
And you should play them
Raise their poker face
And lay it down

There’s a song
Where you belong
You’re tucked inside the verses
You wait
For your great escape
Where you can scream the chorus out
Alone, but not on your own
And you can work your way through what is wrong and what you feel is right
