"The Boys of Summer"


Nobody on the road,
Nobody on the beach
I feel it in the air,
The summer's out of reach

Empty lake, empty streets
The sun goes down alone.
I'm driving by your house,
Though I know, you're not home

But I can see you,
Your brown skin shining in the sun
You got your hair combed back,
Sunglasses on, baby

I can tell you,
My love for you will still be strong,
After the boys of summer have gone

~
I never will forget those nights
I wonder if it was a dream?
Remember how you made me crazy?
Remember how I made you scream?

But I don't understand,
What happened to our love
But babe I'm gonna get you back
I'm gonna show you what I'm made of

I can see you,
Your brown skin shining in the sun
I see you walking real slow,
And smiling at everyone

I can tell you,
My love for you will still be strong,
After the boys of summer have gone

~

Out on the road today,
I saw a Deadhead sticker on a Cadillac
A little voice inside my head said,
"Don't look back, you can never look back"

I thought I knew what love was,
What did I know?
Those days are gone forever
I should just let them go, but

I can see you,
Your brown skin shining in the sun
You got the top pulled down,
Radio on, baby

I can tell you,
My love for you will still be strong,
After the boys of summer have gone

I can see you,
Your brown skin shining in the sun
You got that hair slicked back,
And those Wayfarers on, baby

I can tell you,
My love for you will still be strong,
After the boys of summer have gone
