lyrics

Bethells

I got a call at a quarter to four, to go for a surf on the coast
Jumped in my truck, with my paddle and ski and headed on down to the sea
Ten foot waves, water so fresh and a crest that banked to the left
What a way to spend a summers day, riding the swells at Bethells

Just one of those days when you sit back and say
Here and now there’s nothing I’d change
When all is so right, and you surf until there's no sunlight
Just one of those days when you sit back and say
Here and now there’s nothing I’d change
When all is so right and you surf until there's no sunlight

The shadows grow tall as the sun starts to fall water turns black from blue
What a way to spend a day with a beer and a BBQ

Sound of summer on a West Coast beach when Neppy meets Mother Earth
The crash and boom of a perfect wave, and the song of a Tui bird.
Feel that salty spray as you’re carving down the wave
What a way to spend a summer’s day, riding the swells at Bethells

Just one of those days when you sit back and say
Here and now there’s nothing I’d change
When all is so right, and you surf until there's no sunlight
Just one of those days when you sit back and say
Here and now there’s nothing I’d change
When all is so right and you surf until there's no sunlight

The shadows grow tall as the sun starts to fall, water turns black from blue
What a way to spend a day with a beer and a BBQ

Spiral has a groove. The groove is alive; it has soul, it has emotion, it can get hot and sweaty and it does not fear to get a little dirty.
Description
