You say neglect is all I understand
I know I haven't done the best I can
If I don't change my selfish ways today
You say you'll go away to my dismay

Grab your thongs
We're going for a ride
Singing songs in my car, feeling happy
Because we're going to the sand
I'll show you who I am
We'll walk along the water holding hands
By the sand

We're heading west on highway number one
We'll drive until the hills block half the sun
We'll have some fun

To hurt you wasn't ever my intention
The truth is that I never lost affection
I'm sorry if I didn't pay attention
You were always on my mind

Grab your thongs
We're going for a ride
Singing songs in my car, feeling happy
Because we're going to the sand
I'll show you who I am
We'll walk along the water holding hands
Because we're going to the sand 
Where I'll make you understand
We'll walk along the water holding hands
By the sand

I know sometimes I make mistakes
I think I need to make mistakes
Sometimes stupid things are said
And I'm sorry
I know sometimes I make mistakes
I know sometimes that it's too late
Sometimes stupid things are said

But we're going to the sand
I'll show you who I am
We'll walk along the water holding hands
Because we're going to the sand
Where I'll make you understand
We'll walk along the water holding hands
Yeah, we're going to the sand
Where I'll do the best I can
We'll walk along the water holding hands
By the sand
