Song of the Day: Dog Days

“SO COME ON OUT TONIGHT…OH BABY WE’LL BE BRAND NEW”

-BLUE WATER HIGHWAY

“This is a song about finding re-enchantment in life, making the best out of the final days of summer," said Zack Kibodeaux. "The Dog Days are the hottest part of the year, a time of meteor showers, baseball games, trips to the beach, and fireworks. I remember reading somewhere that, 'these days are made for us to suffer through, or to enjoy, depending on our own point of view.'" - Grateful Web

Lyrics

Been thinking ‘bout a time, Maria

A time that has gone past

You been looking for a feeling, baby

And feeling nothing fast

 

Yeah I thought about St. Lawrence and the Perseids

We never were this blue when we were kids

 

So come on out tonight

Oh baby we’ll be brand new

These are the dog days

This laying around won’t do

Out in the street, babe

We’ll be dancing all the fireworks away

While the band plays

These are the dog days

 

Been thinking how you shine, Maria

With roses in your hair

The ball game’s on the radio

The sound of old Tejano’s in the air

 

I know that madness in your mind

The thirst upon your lips

And all the dreams that burn like lightning

Through your fingertips

 

And I wonder if you know that I’ve been

Wondering where you been

I wonder if you want to start again?

 

So come on out tonight

Oh baby we’ll be brand new

These are the dog days

This laying around won’t do

Out in the heat, babe

We’ll be dancing all the fireworks away

While the band plays….

 

So come on out tonight

Oh baby we’ll be brand new

These are the dog days

This laying around won’t do

Out in the street, babe

We’ll be dancing by that riverwalk cafe

While the band plays

These are the dog days
