Artist: Matt & Kim

Song: Daylight

A cute boy sent us this song. It pretty much sums up the essence of summer. The end.

(PS: This one will be on repeat for quite some time. Until that "half a sunburn" turns into a nice tan at least...)

LYRICS:

we cut the legs off of our pants threw our shoes into the ocean sit back and wave through the daylight sit back and wave through the daylight

slip and slide on subway grates these shoes are poor mans ice skates fall through like change in the daylight fall through like change in the daylight

i miss yellow lines in my roads some color on monochrome maybe i’ll paint them in myself maybe i'll paint them in myself

these sidewalks liquid then stone building walls and an old pay phone it rings like all through the daylight it rings like all through the daylight

and in the daylight we can hitchhike to Maine i hope that someday i’ll see without these frames and in the daylight i don’t pick up my phone

cause in the daylight anywhere feels like home

I have five clocks in my life and only one has the time right i’ll just unplug it for today

ill just unplug it for today

open hydrant rolled down windows this car might make a good old boat and float down grand street in daylight and float down grand street in daylight

and with just half of a sunburn new yellow lines that i earned step back and here comes the night time step back and here comes the night time

and in the daylight we can hitchhike to Maine i hope that someday i’ll see without these frames and in the daylight i don’t pick up my phone

cause in the daylight anywhere feels like home
