From the recording Sandy Toes and Salty Kisses

About a couple who moved from a big city to a lovely beach town and found their happiness.


Sandy Toes and Salty Kisses

We fled the city two years ago.
Escaped the taxes, crime and snow.
No more commutes hanging from a subway strap
No more boom boxes blaring out gangster rap

Life's too short to hate where you live.
The city demands more than it can give.
My three speed bike was just made to cruise.
Above our door hangs a sign--no shoes, no news.

Sandy toes, salty kisses
Ray bans, sheer sundresses
Warm breezes that caress
Are why we live in this old beach town.

Our 2 old dogs love to run the sand
Ocean waves, life without a plan.
We watch the sunsets through a glass of champagne.
You have to be here, it's hard to explain.

Sandy toes, salty kisses
Palm trees sway, the surf caresses
Our Favorite days have no hours
Living in this old Beach-town

People here know how to live.
I've lived in places that refuse to give.
We walk the beach, there are no fences.
Now we live our lives without defenses.

Sandy toes, salty kisses
Hugs, and whispered confidences
These are the joys that uplift us
Living in this old beach town.
