This tiny apartment was closing in on me
The sun was setting over the lonely sea
I stopped in at JBs and sat down at the bar
I was sipping tropical drinks, he was strumming a guitar

5 weeks later I’m living 3 blocks from the beach
He was so far away but now within my reach
I was waiting forever, stressed beyond belief
5 weeks and 3 blocks from the beach

Content to be sleeping, or am I really dreaming?
There’s dancing on tables and screaming
Pina Coladas, Margaritas, and more wine
Jose Cuervo, don’t forget the salt and the lime

5 weeks later I’m living 3 blocks from the beach
He was so far away but now within my reach
Waiting forever, stressed beyond belief
5 weeks and 3 blocks from the beach

Time is moving in slo-mo but not really stopping
Beer cans are popping, flip flops are flopping
Swimming in my red short shorts and matching halter top
Driving a baby blue T-bird rag top

5 weeks later I’m living 3 blocks from the beach
He was so far away but now within my reach
Waiting like forever, stressed beyond belief
5 weeks and 3 blocks from the beach
