Well I grew up on the coast line and we always had a good time
Hangin’ round a place we called The Point
I missed a couple school days and I chased a couple big waves
And I skipped two family trips to Illinois

Lookin’ back there’s no doubt those summers at the boathouse
Really were the good old days
And ever since I moved away

I miss sixteen and I miss sunscreen
Lived it up while the sun was goin’ down
Yeah I sometimes missed the punch line
But I dream of bein’ back there even now

Way back when I was a boy
Didn’t know how much I’d miss the point

Well I’d known her half a lifetime it was simple in the sunshine
Sharin’ dixie cups and skippin’ rocks
I figured we’d be best friends but that changed in a weekend
When she sat down beside me on the dock

Didn’t catch the signs ‘til she put her hand in mine
Lord sometimes I reminisce
On all the things I missed

I miss sixteen and I miss sunscreen
Lived it up while the sun was goin’ down
Yeah I sometimes missed the punch line
But I dream of bein’ back there even now

Way back when I was a boy
Didn’t know how much I’d miss the point
