Sweet Soubrette's poolside anthem to laying back and letting go, written while touring out on the West Coast.

Recorded during the same session as Wake Up When: sweetsoubrette.bandcamp.com/track/wake-up-when


Blue sky poolside paradise, lover boy take my advice
I used to think that it was nice to struggle
But lying in the sun and shade and drinking rum and lemonade
I tell you babe we were not made for trouble

Take it easy, you don't need to be so strong
Make it leisurely, save your energy so you can sing this song
It’s all right to get it wrong
There’s no remedy but life is long

B-side seaside sleeper hit, patience is to wait for it
You teach yourself to sit a little stiller
Idle hands or devil’s work, don't you forget what you have learned
There's time to kill and darling you're the killer

Take it easy...

You can say it’s self defense, but even when you're on the fence
You like to feel you’re up against a challenge
Ignorance is no excuse. so let it go cause what's the use
You'll walk the line until you lose your balance
