Ruthie Collins – Boys and Beaches Lyrics

SHARE

Left that Northern winter town
drove all night, ocean bound
A fair-skinned girl, barely seventeen
bikini tops and fake ID
Blame it on the waves crashing
Blame it on the lights flashing
Blame it on those blue, come on and
kiss me eyes in summertime
I came here looking for a little bit
of sunshine and a good time
Sea salt, boardwalk, toes in the sand
I never knew somebody like you would
fix my heart, and wreck it too
That’s what boys and beaches do
Could keep you warm but they burn you through
The fantasy with the perfect view
They make you never wanna leave
Then you wake up to reality
So blame it on the way you kissed me
and tell me that you’re gonna miss me
Blame it on holding love inside of your hands
then like a tide, roll it out again
I came here looking for a little bit
of sunshine and a good time
Sea salt, boardwalk, toes in the sand
I never knew somebody like you would
fix my heart and wreck it too
That’s what boys and beaches do
They do…
So blame it on the waves crashing
Blame it on the lights flashing
Blame it in the first time falling memories
and goodbye
I came here looking for a little bit
of sunshine and a good time
Sea salt, boardwalk, toes in the sand
I never knew somebody like you would
fix my heart and wreck it too
That’s what boys and beaches do
That’s what boys and beaches do
That’s what they do
boys and beaches
That’s what they do
