Enjoy the full Surftime album here!

I started to run along the shore
I wasn't tired yet so I ran some more
The sun was bright so I turned away,
But there was a sand castle in my way
So I ran right through, I tore it down
The sand castle's broken on the ground
The kid who built it wasn't there,
But I kept on running 'cause I thought he'd care

I started thinking, wondering why
I didn't want to see that poor kid cry
The water was cool, the breeze was blue
I was already running, might as well continue
The day was nice, it's good to share
Drinks with ice, sand in my hair
Sitting on the beach I could show you where
I started running - all the way down there

Pineapple fruits and coconuts
Little kids eating in little huts
One umbrella beside the chair
Drinks with ice, sand in my hair
The broken sand castle was still there
Kid started crying but I didn't care
Taking a break from running on the shore
So that maybe later I can run some more

Megatherian gave feedback to Benci for “The Beaches”:
First impressions, there seem to be intonation issues with the low lead guitar in the beginning. Other than that, solid song. Hope this helps!

The Middlemen gave feedback to Benci for “The Beaches”:
Kind of reminds me of. Quentin Tarantino -- especially Pulp Fiction -- were you inspired?

Thanks! I wasn't inspired by that particularly, but I can hear some similarities.

Huh. So where did you come up with the idea, then. The result is nice, either way, though.

The music just comes. Like my head catches it out of thin air. I'm not saying that the music is innovative or incomparable to anything else, just that I found the inspiration within me rather than with the help of that movie.

Kode Bliss gave feedback to Benci for “The Beaches”:
Very funny song. Is this fiction or did you really knock over a little kids sand castle and run away.... My guess is that this a song from a painful memory and what you leave out is the kid caught up with you...

Thanks! I didn't leave anything out of the story, and nobody caught up to me.
