Some Relaxing Beach Lyrics (Images)

Knee Deep - Zac Brown Band

Paradise

Ah Zac Brown Band... some of the most memorable beachy lyrics. These are from "Knee Deep":

"Wishing I was knee deep in the water somewhere
Got the blue sky, breeze and it don't seem fair.
Only worry in the world is the tide gonna reach my chair?
Sunrise there's a fire in the sky.
Never been so happy,
Never felt so high.
And I think I might have found me my own kind of paradise.

Have you ever had a glimpse of heaven, been able to visit a tropical paradise? I've been to Florida a few times as a child, and even once after I was married, but to me, paradise is the Sandals Resort in Jamaica where we honeymooned. Thinking about it makes me ache to go back. Hopefully, I'll get to some day. In the mean time, I'll put these beach-y lyrics on tropical backgrounds!

Have You Ever Wanted to Sail Away So Badly?

"I was feelin' the blues
I was watchin' the news
When this fella came on the TV.
He said I'm tellin' you
that science has proven
that heartaches are healed
by the sea...
So bring me two pina coladas
one for each hand.
Let's set sail with Captain Morgan
and never leave dry land.
Troubles I forgot 'em,
I buried them in the sand."
- Garth Brooks


When the Sun Goes Down

Paradise at Home

As summer comes to a close, these lyrics really strike a cord with me. Have you been able to enjoy any barbecues this season? I bet you can imagine the crackle of the food on the grill, the delicious snacks, perhaps an adult beverage or two. We can find paradise right here at home too!

Nibbling on sponge cake, watching the sun bake,
All of those tourists covered with oil,
Strumming my six string, on my front porch swing,
Smell those shrimp, they're beginning to boil.

Picture Yourself on a Hammock

"All day long just takin' it easy
Layin' in a hammock
Where it's nice and breezy.

'Cuz when the sun goes down,
We'll be groovin'
When the sun goes down,
be feelin' alright.
When the sun sinks down
Over the water
Everything gets hotter
when the sun goes down."
-Kenny Chesney

My Honeymoon Paradise

I got married before smartphones. Well... before I had a smartphone. One the one hand, I think that's a good thing because I'm borderline addicted to my smartphone now. On our honeymoon, we kept our phones off and locked up in our hotel room because we didn't want any distractions.

On the other hand, I would have had so many more photos. I am very disappointed by the lack of photos from such an amazing time in my life. I did get a couple of good ones, though. Here's one of two palm trees I really liked. I used this photo because Jamaica is specifically mentioned in this song.

How to Make These Lyric Photos

This is a pretty simple (not to mention fun) project to do, and if you have experience using Picmonkey or any similar sites, it'll be very easy for you.

If you're posting your new artwork on a public site, you'll need to use photographs that you have permission to modify. Since I'm using these on hubpages, where I get a small percentage of the advertising payments that you see, I needed to find photos that give permission to use commercially as well. I find my photographs on Flickr, searching Creative Commons. Most of the photos I find require me to give credit to the photographer on Flickr, which is why I always link back to their photo in the captions.

Next I go over to Picmonkey. Here, I click 'edit' to upload my photograph.
From here I sometimes add an overlay. A lot of these lyric photos that I've made have geometric shapes behind the text. These are the overlays I'm referring to. After I add the overlay, I move the fade bar over so it's not just a solid geometric shape. It's much easier to see the text when it's on top of these overlays. You might have to right click and select 'send to back' if, for whatever reason, the overlay appears on top of your words.

Picmonkey also allows you to crop, enhance, and make collages, among other things. Have you ever used this or any other sites to create images using photographs?

Make sure to save your work! For some reason, I actually can't save through the site so from the save screen, I right click on the image and do a 'Save Image As'.
