Greg Johnson sent me this idea a while back. I added a verse and tweaked some things.
It took a while for this to come together. It never felt right to me until I heard this Xtra style.
This will be our entry in the contest. Thanks to all that listen and comment.

Caribbean Moon



I've paid my bills, packed my things
Tied up a couple of loose ends that more than a few years of living brings
Where I’ve found the strength Well I don’t know
I met an island girl in St Maarten about a year ago

In the mornin', I'll be headin' out
Down to see my special one
We'll walk along the beach without a cloud
In the midday sun
I feel just like a kid on Christmas Eve
I'll be holdin' her so soon
Warm embraces and a midnight kiss
Beneath the Caribbean moon

Long cold nights i’ve seen better days
gonna put this all behind me spend some time down south catching rays
Have a drink or two soaking up the sun
on island time I'll be half baked before the day is done

In the mornin', I'll be headin' out
Down to see my special one
We'll walk along the beach without a cloud
In the midday sun
I feel just like a kid on Christmas Eve
I'll be holdin' her so soon
Warm embraces and a midnight kiss
Beneath the Caribbean moon

So laid back no need to rush let's have another beer
Sit and breathe as waves roll in and wash away the wasted years

In the mornin', I'll be headin' out
Down to see my special one
We'll walk along the beach without a cloud
In the midday sun
I feel just like a kid on Christmas Eve
I'll be holdin' her so soon
Warm embraces and a midnight kiss
Beneath the Caribbean moon
