I'm going down to the sea
M-l-S-S-l-S-S-l-P-P
I watch the sun yellow and brown
Sinking suns in every town

My angel sings down to me
She's somewhere on the shore waiting for me
With her wet hair and sandy gown
Singing songs waves of sound

There's a dive I know on River Street
Go on in and take my seat
There's a lot of friends I'll never meet
Gonna take a dive off River Street

You look different from way down here
Like a circus mirror I see flashes, of you on the surface

I'm coming up from way down here
The water's clear, all I want is to see your face

I'm going down to the sea
M-l-S-S-l-S-S-l-P-P
I watch the sun yellow and brown
Sinking suns in every town

Also, Chad and Jeremy and Peter and Gordon.


Also  The BoDeans and god knows how many other "Two guys who harmonize" pairings. The comparisons are inevitable and predictable. One either enjoys their sound or not.
I sit on the beach and it fits...
A bit Ever-lish?  A little more sustain and a little less minor and you've got "Cathy's Clown", which I didn't like because my steady date was Cathy.

PS I sorely miss the Dr Demento radio show.

!Parts remind of Everly brothers.  Change ups in verses.  Nice guitar.  I like the change to minor on the last note of the chorus.

Lovely!
More like Jan & Dean.
Lovely stuff! Strikes chords that resonate in my heart! When I was just a little kid, my elder cousin Toni and her friends used to play and sing along to the Everly Brothers often on their turntables and acoustic guitars, and this sends me back... This talented duo gives me new and treasured revelations, thanks to RP!

Based off of their Wiki page, they are brothers.
