lyrics

White sheets pale streets bleak suburbia
Feeling like an old cartoon
Palm trees bare feet bleak suburbia
I wanna be marooned

White sheets pale streets bleak suburbia
Gotta get out of my room
Palm trees bare feet bleak suburbia
I wanna be marooned


I’ll find a new string for your old guitar
Then we can start a band in your dad’s garage
We’ll sit on the beach until we see a mirage
It’s only early days babe but we should aim for the stars

We could fill a boat with ginger beer
Pretend that we’re anywhere else but here
Take off our shirts and wrap them up like hats
‘Cause just for today we are never going back

White sheets pale streets bleak suburbia
Feeling like an old cartoon
Palm trees bare feet bleak suburbia
I wanna be marooned

White sheets pale streets bleak suburbia
Gotta get out of my room
Palm trees bare feet bleak suburbia
I wanna be marooned

Grab your straw hat I’ll wear my pastel shorts
The frames of our shades will be as wide as our thoughts
We’ll fade like the paint on your old blue chair
Then we’ll swim into a dream like the salt to your hair

We could fill a tin boat with ginger beer
Stay in the lake or maybe disappear
And when our phones go dead and we can’t use maps
We’ll be languid on a boat with no commotion on our backs

Pretend
That we’re left stranded
Somewhere blue
Maybe Nanuya Levu
