Lyrics

We'd hit the wedge where the big waves were breaking
We would grab our boards and ride
Responsibility and cares forsaken
The days were on our side

Surfer girls would hangout on the shore
At night we'd steal away and hide
But they don't come around any more
The days were on our side

Time keeps ticking
The second hand beats rhythm toward or fate
Sand keeps slipping
Time keeps ticking away

We'd follow PCH on down to TJ
Or up to Santa Cruz we'd glide
Out of cash back home to LA
The days were on our side

Time keeps ticking
The second hand beats rhythm toward or fate
Sand keeps slipping
Time keeps ticking away

My father warned me "life goes by quick"
Enjoy your youth while it is near
Now I catch myself preaching to MY kids
The same old words I used to hear
Life goes by quick

Music on the pier we'd play our guitars
And sing for the people passing by
Cases full of tips fueled dreams of going far
The days were on our side

Time keeps ticking
The second hand beats rhythm toward or fate
Sand keeps slipping
Time keeps ticking away

Time keeps ticking
The second hand beats rhythm toward or fate
Sand keeps slipping
Time keeps ticking away
