Somebody has to

I’m drinking this beer


sitting in this chair


on the beach


thinking about us.


Somebody has to do it.


 


I’m writing this song


about how we were in love


sitting on a chair


watching the waves come in


on the beach.


Somebody has to do it.


 


I wish I had a dollar


for every drink


I drank for her


because I used to


have those dollars


and her.


Now I don’t.


 


So, I’ll just drink this beer


sit on this chair


at the beach


watch the ocean


and think about us.


 


So, don’t ask me why


I’m drinking this beer


staring at the ocean


because I’d


have to tell you


I did it for her.


And she doesn’t even know.


 


So, I’ll just watch the waves come in


one after the other


like they always do.


 


For now


I’ll be here


just in case


something different happens.


If the ocean stops


I’ll let you know.


 


But for now


I’ll drink this beer


and think about


me and her


looking at the ocean.


Somebody has to do it.
