​Rockaway Beach

This song is by Brazzaville and appears on the album The Oceans of Ganymede (2016).

Tiny sand dunes
In the midday sun
Tattooed young Dominicans
A gentle breeze from New York City
Salt and diesel fumes
And life seemed not so out of reach
That day on Rockaway Beach

She seemed so serious
And so debonnaire
Salt water dryin' in her hair
Her eyes closed tight against the glare
Life's hard at 23
But life seemed not so out of reach
That day on Rockaway Beach

Candy wrappers
In the sand
Old men strollin' down the strand
Airplanes off to distant lands
Full of hopes and dreams
And life seemed not so out of reach
That day on Rockaway Beach
