Summer 02:15
new moms blowing bubblegum kids running with their water guns a little help from my friends and i get by who can tell if we'll get too far playing tunes in living rooms and bars but i'm making moves in the summer of '09 and i don't want to go home yet cotton dresses and a bubble tea the sand sinking down under me and not a whole lot of money to get spent blue skies tell me how do you do i've always got a love song for you we get along so famously my friend and i don’t want to go home yet
2.
when you hurt me back, the moonlight left the sky your front door snapped shut, and all i could say was i’m not going to let you go not going to let you go just going to make you know the grandest love i’m not going to give you you up not going to give you up i need your touch your touch to live hey hey well i could make you cry, but i’d rather make you dance wipe the tears from your eyes, i’m telling you oh i’m not going to let you go not going to let you go just going to make you know the grandest love i’m not going to break your heart not going to break your heart this whole wide world is dark without you hey hey well, you can call it true love i’m never giving you up i’m not going to let you go not going to let you go just going to make you know the grandest love i’m not going to break your heart not going to break your heart i need this love that started all with you hey hey hey hey hey uh hey uh hey uh woah
3.
hey there sweetheart where are you laying your head hey there where are you laying your head it’s gonna be obvious soon a day as a bride and a groom we get back from our honeymoon you’re sleeping in my room oh my darling when will i see you again oh my goodness why do our dates ever end it’s gonna be different soon a day as a bride and a groom we get back from our honeymoon you’re sleeping in my room

Oh No 04:09
don't you walk out of here am i making myself clear i know you don't like to listen well that's not the part of you i miss i've been thinking how foolish it is to be without you if i'm always dreaming about you every moment of my life oh no oh no you didn't just dream of something different i know i made some mistakes but you've made a heart that beats for you break i've been thinking how foolish it is to be without you if i'm always dreaming about you every moment of my life you say that you've had enough but i don't think you know what's up when this whole time we've both been aching inside all our plans will come to nothing if you're just here to give up as if you actually tried one day everything just changes and we start running out of patience who knows how or why it happens still, love, i won't turn my back i've been thinking how foolish it is to be without you if i'm always dreaming about you every moment of my life you say that you've had enough but i don't think you know what's up when this whole time we've both been aching inside all our plans will come to nothing if you're just here to give up as if you actually tried i can't let go of you i've been thinking how foolish it is to be without you if i'm always dreaming about you every moment of my life

In The Sun 03:39
in the gut in the gut is where we lost the thinking cap in the air in the air is where we have our sorrows to share i’m a speck i’m a grain i’m a crumb i’m a mote i’m a trace with my hands in my jacket parading down the straights i had a long time i had a long time in the sun take my hand take my hand what have i got left for you to take? where’s my mind? where’s your soul? our bodies were in the back having heart attacks speck i’m a grain i’m a crumb i’m a mote i’m a trace of the love we used to have i had a long time i had a long time in the sun

1997 03:19
well you look as good as me but you’re not quite as tall and if you never get a job you’ll haunt the museum halls let’s have some fun i don’t know if there’s someone more perfect for me it’s like i’m on a hidden camera show and you could all be fooling me all the clouds will rust and crumble when we get to heaven but i’ll love you always and forever like it’s 1997 let’s have some fun i don’t know if there’s someone more perfect for me we’ll walk on through slush and snow chasing skating dates that will never be tell me you love me in your sleep if i’d lost you in the reeds i’d still have fallen hard when summer’s here we’ll stay up ‘til there’s nothing else our waking selves can say tell me you love me in your sleep
7.
Sublet 03:15
my heart is upset that i won’t sublet but i am not the man you love yet this real estate is not for sale i’m giving it away one night is all it took to fall this far for anyone you’re the culprit it feels so great right now to know i’m living just to say that i will serve you and i don’t deserve to but i have no curfew and there’s nothing else worth doing i’ll serenade you granting you know i can’t sing but i can’t dance and we went dancing smile once for me, girl i’ll be kissing you tonight i’ll walk you home through the rain, and snow too a fire or a war, there’s nothing i won’t do ’cause i want more than just to be with you hey hey oh i will serve you and i don’t deserve to but i have no curfew and there’s nothing else worth doing anything you want i’ll give to you
8.
Stay 02:36
i am dreaming of perfect summer air that we are breathing and wheat stalks in the sun always gleaming will you stay with me will you be my love and give me your hand to hold will you stay with me will you be my love among the fields of gold there’s not a damned thing that’ll get between the two of us dancing in heaven’s endless leas, so enchanting will you stay with me will you be my love and give me your hand to hold will you stay with me will you be my love among the fields of gold my one and only will you stay with me will you be my love and give me your hand to hold will you stay with me will you be my love among the fields of gold will you stay with me will you be my love
9.
i need your touch, babe, over and over right here and right now and when we’re older it’s been a long time since i first talked to you and there is still nothing i’d rather do well, here we are we always knew we’d make it this far this sacred union let nothing sever you know i’ll love you love you forever oh in the morning and in the afternoon oh in the evening and underneath the moon well, here we are we always knew we’d make it this far

Summary 00:59
we sang about the sun we sang about the love we had and had not we had a little fun we had a little bit to drink when it was hot will i see you next summer when we all go out and play we sang about we sang about the son on sunday morning with tongues of fire we sang about the good nights had a couple bad ones too but i always come back to you we made a little promise told our friends about it too held our weddings kiss a few moments longer than you’d probably guess
11.
Slip Away 00:32
and if we're not too careful, these summertimes slip away as the sun shines down on us day after day
12.
Goodbye 01:33
why does saying goodbye always feel so wrong? why does saying goodbye always feel so bad? we were meant to be why does leaving your house always feel so strange? why does leaving your house always feel so off? we were meant to be
13.
i’m going to marry you on a mountaintop and as we reach the peak, that’s when the snow will stop i’m going to look at you coming down that aisle that’s made of sticks and stones and we’re both going to smile ‘cause our love has begun and we’ve been oh so careful with it i’m going to marry you on a beach one day every wave will laugh and the trees will sway i’m going to make my vows and we’ll be holding hands the string quartet will play and barefoot we’ll dance ‘cause our love has begun and we’re still just children tonight i’m going to marry you in our friends’ back yard with puppies running loose, the patio door ajar and i’m going to kiss your lips and you’re going to kiss mine back the sun will shine twice as hard our friends will scream and clap ‘cause our love has begun and there is no ending to it

about

One of the first times I composed an album around a theme, SUMMER is a simple but fun collage of carefree friendships, romantic getaways, and youthful nostalgia.
