The Story Behind the Song
[/op_liveeditor_element]
[op_liveeditor_element data-style=””][text_block style=”style_1.png” align=”left” top_margin=”5″]Before we headed out to California we wrote this song in a loft on St Laurent in Montreal above Schwartz’s Deli and a pizza place. Endless sunshine, happiness and everything the West Coasts encompasses were on our minds. This song was created to represent an escape from reality, and an homage to another time and place.However, like with any expectations, the idealized “beach” theme sheds light on the reality that once you get there, you may discover that it’s not everything you imagined.

This is the story of a broken man, who, after putting himself out there time and time again, continues to see no end to getting his heart crushed. For many, bad relationships can cause them to become very skeptical and guarded. As human beings with feeling and emotions, we often put up “walls” in order to keep people at a distance for fear of getting hurt by them. But no matter how much we try, the right person always manages to find their way around, or through that wall. And when they do, it restores our faith in love, and heals the heartache.

The upbeat, almost bouncy feel to this song is a sonic reflection of the renewed faith and optimism of that big, exuberant chorus. Just like how it’s hard to be sad when you find that right person, it’s hard to dwell on the melancholic feel of the verse once that chorus turns that mood completely upside down.[/text_block][/op_liveeditor_element]

Now I’ve been around and there’s one thing I’ve found
Love can bring you right down to your knees
Yeah I’ve been so used had my heart so abused
That I was singing the blues in my sleep

Oh, but then it hit me, the love bug bit me
And she was all I could see
I though about it, now I don’t doubt it
She’s so perfect for me

She’s one of a kind, the top of the line
The one that every man hopes he can find
A genuine girl, the rarest of pearls
If you’ve got her you’re on top of the world
Yeah, she’s so fine, she’ll blow your mind
She’ll make you go crazy all of the time
Oh that girl’s one of a kind, I gotta make her mine

There are girls that I’ve known that are bad to the bone
With them you’ll end up alone every time
They take what they need you know that’s guaranteed
They’ll say it’s love but it feels like a crine

Oh, but she won’t hurt me and won’t desert me
That’s just easy to see
I can’t deny it, and I can’t hide it
That girl’s all that I need

She’s one of a kind, the top of the line
The one that every man hopes he can find
A genuine girl, the rarest of pearls
If you’ve got her you’re on top of the world
Yeah, she’s so fine, she’ll blow your mind
She’ll make you go crazy all of the time
Oh that girl’s one of a kind, I gotta make her mine

Yeah she won’t hurt me and won’t desert me
That’s just easy to see
I can’t deny it, and I can’t hide it
That girl’s all that I need

She’s one of a kind, the top of the line
The one that every man hopes he can find
A genuine girl, the rarest of pearls
If you’ve got her you’re on top of the world
Yeah, she’s so fine, she’ll blow your mind
She’ll make you go crazy all of the time
Oh that girl’s one of a kind, I gotta make her mine
