Went walking through town just the other day with nothing much to do
As the sun came breaking down through the clouds
I never seen the sky so blue
I saw a Cajun man with a red guitar singing on the side of the street
I threw a handful of change in his beat up case and said play me a country beat
And it sounded like

Met up with some friends outside of town we were headed towards the lake
I hopped into the back of a jacked up jeep, felt the wind upon my face
We got to the spot and the sun was hot everybody was feeling fine
So we jumped on in for a midday swim then we lost all track of time

[Chorus]
It was a perfect day
What I'd give if I could find a way to stay
Lost in this moment, now
Ain't worried 'bout tomorrow
When you're busy living in a perfect day

As the moon came out and the fire burned, everybody was singing along
To some rambling a little Curtis Lowe and all those feel good songs
We danced all night without a care, no place we'd rather be
Cause these are the days we'll talked about
When we lived so wild and free

[Chorus]

We were sitting in the sand as he grabbed my hand and he leaned in for a kiss
I couldn't help but think with the stars above, it don't get much better than this

It was a perfect day
What I'd give if I could find a way to stay
Lost in this moment, now
Ain't worried 'bout tomorrow
When your busy living, feels like dreaming,
Slowly drifting through this perfect day
