lyrics

(Music and lyrics by Yoko Oji Kikuchi)

I’ll be wicked obvious, laying on my stomach ache
You’ll be right about me; I’ll obsess over you to your face
One hand in the sand, one foot in the water
A party of six, your surrogate daughter
Your mouth is a jukebox, my back is the beach
We’re sleeping and dancing, a little of each
I don’t want to leave here, I want to move in
I’d start with my secrets, but where have they been?

“Summer ended in early August this year,” so you say
The beach dirt still fills up your shoes, the chlorine’s still inside your face
I say this: “If I wake up in Brooklyn, the day will last all week.”
And I say this: “If I wake up in Brooklyn, I can never be sad.”

And if I am to wake up in Brooklyn
I’d start with my secrets, but where have they been?
Too dirty and wordy for your windowsill
They’ll fall to the backyard like old Bad Luck Bill
And if I am to wake up in the South Bronx
I’d start with my shoes, but I can’t find my socks
I’ll walk in bare feet downtown to Manhattan
The day will last all year again
