Lyrics From the Beach - Vol 6

Timothy is a Christian who enjoys creating visual art and writing. He has a B.S. in Psychology.

Even in these times as the saying goes, “the song must go on.” I write lyrics not because I expect someone to make them into songs but because I love to write. It is fun to try and put your thoughts into words which are lyrical in nature. I hope you enjoy this latest grouping of lyrics. Until next time stay safe and have a good holiday season.

My Best Friend

Every breath I take

you are there

Walking alongside me

Showing me you care

You make sure

I don’t fall

Over what I can’t see


You know me real well


You‘re my best friend

My best friend

You‘re one of a kind

You’re my best friend

My Best Friend


We’ve been through a lot

You and I

We’ve had some laughs

There’s time we cried

But no matter what

May come our way

We can always say


You‘re my best friend

My best friend

You‘re one of a kind

You’re my best friend

My Best Friend

And So It Goes

In every life there are those moments

When you try to heal, self inflicted wounds

You seek a sanctuary safe and strong

Or just hide away in some quiet room


You live your life in cautious moments

Trying to live each day with no pretense

You don’t ever want to say too much

Your life of quiet is your only defense


And every time you’ve sought out love

It seems you’re only left with the pain

And so it goes this thing called life

And so it goes the sunshine and rain


Don’t worry about the ones who leave

In the end it is their one big mistake

They didn’t get to know your true love

And they didn’t get your heart to break


Don’t live with your eyes closed tight

You’ll miss much of what can be seen

And so it goes, and so it goes

Live for the now not what has been


So I would choose if I were you

That is a choice you have to make

Live a life of your own choosing

Do let others your heart to break


And so it goes, and so it goes

This thing called life

I Wanna Go Back

My thoughts return to

times so long ago

Memories of the people,

the places we’d go

We swore our lives were

never gonna change

Our future would hold

more pleasure than pain

Now I know things are

never gonna be the same


I wanna go back,

To the times long gone by

But I know I can’t go back

I wanna go back

Cause I’m over the hill

To retouch all the memories

But I know I can’t go back


It’s funny how your mind works

The places it takes you each day

The people you remember

The things you say


I wanna go back,

To the times long gone by

But I know I can’t go back

I wanna go back

Cause I’m over the hill

To retouch all the memories

But I know I can’t go back

My Yesterdays

Yesterday

All my friends and me
would say
Our tomorrows seemed
so far away
But that was yesterday

Yesterday
All my friends and me
would say
The good times were here
to stay
But that was yesterday

Yesterday
All my friends and me
would say
We’d be together till
our dying days
But that was yesterday

Yesterdays come and
Yesterdays go
Time moves faster
As you grow
So hold on to tomorrow
Don’t’ you know
Cause soon it will be
Your yesterday

Yesterday
All my friends and me
would say
Our tomorrows seemed
so far away
But that was yesterday

Yesterdays come and
Yesterdays go
Time moves faster
As you grow
So hold on to tomorrow
Don’t’ you know
Cause soon it will be
Your yesterday

As Time Flies By

All time flies by
It all becomes a history
Celebrate in the now
Don't save your joy
For memories
For memories

Times were great back when
Life seems to work out that way
Here is always much worse
So as what they say
Can't let the past cover you
You'll miss all the joy
If you don't understand
It's like getting a new toy
You play with and when
The time is soon done
You place it on a shelf in your heart
Leave it alone

All time flies by
It all becomes a history
Celebrate in the now
Don't save your joy
For memories
For memories

Time doesn't stand still it moves
Leaves the life behind you
Nostalgia is ok, not when
It's all you want to do
There is nothing quite like being
Sure of what's in your heart
But if it's to crowded in there
Joy won't find a place to start

All time flies by
It all becomes a history
Celebrate in the now
Don't save your joy
For memories
For memories
Give yourself a chance to live life
You have to, you have to

Can’t Stop Thinking About Love

I can’t stop thinking about love

Since I met you

I can’t stop

Thinking about love

Ooh something got a hold of me

Don’t let go

Something got a hold on me

I won’t let go

I once wandered

a dry barren land

Living the life

I’d planned

Thought I had

I had all the love

I dreamed

Till I met you

My eyes were opened

I saw my life

for what it is

for what it is

I can’t stop thinking about love

Since I met you

I can’t stop

Thinking about love

I once wandered

a dry barren land

Living the life

I’d planned

I can’t stop thinking about love

Since I met you

I can’t stop

Thinking about love

Ooh something got a hold of me

Don’t let go

Something got a hold on me

I won’t let go
