Story behind the song
This is a song I wrote about appreciating what you've got, and trying to lighten up about silly little things that we seem to get so worked up about. It's about that glimpse of great potential that comes during brief clarified moments of beauty, and it's about a starfish.
Lyrics
I saved this song for a rainy day and i think we're gonna be okay cause i've got nothing witty left to say just to stand around and talk about the weather and we know that there's no sense in so much arguing the world is ending and noone's listening cause we've got things between you and me, and god it seems that everything is always stuck between what's really happening and then our voices hit and it's just ... we'll pay the price of it tonight and every day that it goes away and it's like we say and it's not okay all we're left with here today is one last ... this song is easier than it probably seems but in my life i've said a lot of things that i don't mean to try and win you over - to try to know my dreams and some of the lies i tried to hide, they're hidden still from me there's a starfish in the front yard he's sitting there talking about the way, how on a rainy day even starfish wind up in the front yard, talkin how the road was hard that brought him from the ocean, to our lawn on Ambar Way and then our voices hit and it's just ... he's gonna pay the price of it tonight there he's lying there and dying, air is drying out his hide i think i see a starfish smiling, crying out ... come with me to the sea by Santa Cruz and we can float on funnel cakes, and we'll drown ourselves in booze sitting in the motel 6, but we'll never leave the room we're singing about those secret things that keep these songs in tune and then our voices hit and it's just ... we're gonna pay the price of it tonight and everyday that it goes away, like we say, and it's not okay but all we're left with here today is one last ... i saved this song for a rainy day and i think we're gonna be okay cause i've got nothing witty left to say just to stand around and talk about the weather
