He's on the Beach by Kirsty MacColl

C 				G
He was just a friend of mine I'd run into from time to time
    Am 				F 			C
And long before he moved away we used to share a taste for wine
		G 			F
Still I never knew that he was sad that's when
    C 	     F 	      G 	     F        C G
He said the time had come for him to take a holiday.

CHORUS:
		C
And he says its brilliant there
		  F
There's something in the air
	     C
And sunshine everywhere
	     G
He's on the beach
	      C
I know he's changed somehow
	     F
He writes us postcards now
		C
I'm not sure where he is
	    G
He's out of reach

When he called me up one day and said that he was going away
I thought he meant a week in france and not ten thousand miles to Sydney bay
Still he had to take his chances
He said the time had come for him to make a move away

CHORUS:
And he says its brilliant there
There's something in the air
And sunshine everywhere
He's on the beach
I know he's changed somehow
He writes us postcards now
I'm not sure where he is
He's on the beach

And I dont blame him
Leaving was the best thing he could do
With all the changes
I just hope he's happy when he does the things he thinks he has to do
And he tries. And he tries. And he tries so hard but all by himself
Somehow he's trying to be someone else

And he says, he says, he says its brilliant there
There's something in the air
And sunshine everywhere
He's on the beach
I know he's changed somehow
He's in Australia
And he's on the beach
And he says its brilliant there
