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 comb'd back and sunglasses on
baby
And 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
And I don't understand what happened to our love

But baby
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 you're smiling at ev'ryone
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 that top pulled down and that 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 your hair slick'd back and your wavarers on
baby
And I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone
