lyrics

I'm going to the beach today
I'm throwing all my troubles away
Not thinking about how I'll die someday
And that nothing really matters
I said I'm not thinking about it

I'm gonna splash around in the waves
Get the endorphins my body craves
I'm gonna soak the sunlight in, in, in
'Cause someday, all of this will fade
All right, let's think about it

'Cause when you zoom way out
To the stars, we're just tiny grains of sand
And the tide rolls in
In the dark, 'round the bonfire, we'll be waving our hands
And we'll dance

Because nothing really matters
And that's actually fine
It's all temporary
And I don't mind

Nothing really matters
No destiny aligned
We are temporary
That's why I'm just killing time
Just killing time

Those thoughts keep creeping back again
Malady of the quotidian
When I die, my to-do list won't be done
But does it really matter?
When you think about it, no.

I'm gonna lie out there in the sunlight
I'm gonna wait 'til the moonrise tonight
I'm gonna tell you every joke I know
And when I see you smile,
Girl, you know I'll treasure this
For as long as my brain exists

When the sun explodes
And the icy cold starts overtaking us
I'll be there with you, you know,
And in the dark, light a bonfire, waving our hands
And we'll dance
And we'll dance!

Nothing really matters
And that's actually fine
It's all temporary
And I don't mind

Nothing really matters
The summer days that fade away
That depression haze
I'll be dogging that black dog 'til my dying day

Nothing really matters
Except your eyes in the bonfire light
Life is temporary
And that's why I'm hoping you'll find
That you don't mind
Just killing time
Just killing time
Time time time time time time time ...
