about

A smattering of summer. A cautionary tale. A three-hour tour.

lyrics

She said, “Life jackets are for girls”
As she climbed aboard

You know an anchor’s gonna drag you down
You know an anchor’s gonna drag you down
You know an anchor’s gonna drag you down
You know an anchor’s gonna drag you down

She said a storm was on the way
And right then we just had to sail

She said life jackets are for girls as we climbed aboard. Her arms were shaking and she had goosebumps on her thighs. I could tell she was looking for something to hold onto. So I said 'baby an anchor is just gonna drag you down'. And she laughed as we shoved off into the sea (that day). She had a beautiful laugh when she was scared. A storm was comin' but we didn't care. We had too much in front of us and too little behind us back then. But right then we just had to sail.

She had this laugh when she was scared
And right then we just had to sail
