Rascal Flatts Cool Thing Lyrics

Last updated: 12/12/2007 10:00:00 AM

We were wrapped up in a blanket
red wine buzz kickin' in
a little Sarasota moonlight
driftwood fire burnin'
she was on break from Ohio State
and I was down there sellin'
parasail rides
just another summer day
till I strapped her in and
watched her fly

Talk about a sunset
all I could see were purples
and reds
and her silhouette wavin' goodbye
she didn't come there lookin' for love
and the cool thing was
neither did I and neither did I

She dipped down in the water
as I slowed down holdin' that line
wet t-shirt on a two piece
we ditched that boat and
hung outside
and we walked ankle deep in ocean
you know that place where
footprints disappear
just like that evenin' she drove away
it'll be burned in my mind for a
million years

Amazing artists.
The lyrics i adore.
i go home everyday and turn on this song and turn the volume up all the way and scream out the song.
i feelt this way before..and when i first heard the song..i couldnt get enough.

For Dawn's question. | Reviewer: Julie | 10/12/2007

It was a one time summer fling. That's why he says the memory of her driving away will stay with him forever. It's because he knows that was the last time he'll ever see her again. He'll never know if she's thinking of him or remembers him or what her life turned out to be, all he knows is what they had together and then it was over. That's why he compares it to the metaphor of the footprints in the sand that disappear.

so the question is, is it a one time deal? or is the fact that the fling didn't start out serious, got serious and even though they didn't come looking for love, they found it and kept it beyond the summer??

This song is so true about your summer love, you have that one special person then you lose them when the summer's over.
