Track Name: Ghosts Of Destin
The brown boys of the beaches
Came down from their lairs
Broke down the blue umbrellas
And folded up the chairs

They did not seem to notice
As we walked by them to the sea
Past a couple young and barefoot
One down on bended knee

She held my hand and whispered
Of the wonders we would do
It was such a pretty picture
And I tried to see it, too
I tried to see it, too

But behind her there were ghosts
Lovers just like her and me
Floating up and down the coast
Mourning dreams that’ll never be
Promises made and broken
Still stranded by the sea
The ghosts of Destin have no memories

We walked along the shoreline
Towards Choctawhatchee Bay
Past the laughing groups of people
Getting family portraits made

When we made it to the Boathouse
With our sandy shoes in hand
I ordered beer and oysters
While she sat in with the band

When the set was over
And all the tipsy headed home
The harbor docks were empty
Oh, but we were not alone
No, we were not alone

Behind her there were ghosts
Lovers just like her and me
Floating up and down the coast
Mourning dreams that’ll never be
Promises made and broken
Still stranded by the sea
The ghosts of Destin have no memories

There were winds on the horizon
Trying to collect
950 miles away
She never saw it coming
From the railing of that deck
A storm would lay it all to waste
And two more ghosts rose in its wake

Behind her there were ghosts
Lovers just like her and me
Floating up and down the coast
Mourning dreams that’ll never be
Promises made and broken
Still stranded by the sea
The ghosts of Destin have no memories
