Drove all night just to get here,
Been on the road too long,
Out where little things grow
And you lose all sense of perspective.
And I worry too much about paying the bills,
Fighting these battles and climbing these hills,
Running so hard, until I've got to sit down.
I've got a magic chair.
It's sits on the beach and
It takes my cares away.
I've got a magic chair,
Sit down beside me.
It looks just like I left it...
Sea oats anchor the shore
And the sand crabs shuffle
Just like some people I know.
I get working so hard I start feeling delirious,
This is just life-- it ain't nothing serious.
And I'll run hard, until I have to sit down.
I can't stay here forever.
The sun is sinking low and
The tide's rolling in--
It's gonna wash us away.
Buddy, I'm soaking it in because I know it won't last.
Life is so short you've got to move fast.
And I'll run hard until I've got to sit down.
