Tropical Leaves

Lyrics

BEFORE YOU GO

Well I wasn’t sure why a sun-kissed girl like you was living so far from the coastline,

and you left me confused when you said couldn’t leave this town or it would break your mothers’ heart

 

Getting offered good jobs in warmer location, you couldn’t explain why you kept turning them down,

I knew deep down that you wanted to go so I left until you had convinced yourself

 

Now you’re giving away your mountains of shoes and trading them in for an old wetsuit,

Minimising all of your material things, running for the happiness you’re allowing yourself to bring

 

I doubt the sunshine coast will be ready for those beautiful eyes, that once saw straight into my soul,

I hope to gaze in through those light blue windows and see inside one more time before you go

 

We ducked down to Adam and Eve for a coffee and you told me you felt nervous about starting the journey,

So I sent you a playlist that should ease your mind and take your thoughts off the road, at least for a while

 

Now you’re giving away your mountains of shoes and trading them in for an old wetsuit,

Minimising all of your material things, running for the happiness you’re allowing yourself to bring

 

Well I doubt the sunshine coast will be ready for those beautiful eyes, that once saw straight into my soul,

I hope to gaze in through those light blue windows and see inside one more time before you go

Sitting in your front seat heading up the highway, which is just the opposite of where you were just an hour before,

As we held each other close from across the console of my front seat and we tried to hold back the tears from running down our cheek

Well I doubt the sunshine coast will be ready for those beautiful eyes, that once saw straight into my soul,

I hope to gaze in through those light blue windows and see inside one more time before you go

And I doubt the sunshine coast will be ready for those beautiful eyes, that once saw straight into my soul,

I hope to gaze in through those light blue windows and see inside one more time before you go,

one more time before you go,

one more time before you go,
