lyrics

Only In Summer

All he said was
She was pretty enough
To be a stripper
They used to say that back home
It never was a problem
He thought it was a compliment

Yeah, she walked away
But before she did she said
Man, you’re a disaster
Every scene you’re in needs editing
Before it goes to air

Long ago you used to be my brother
Long ago you used to be my friend
maybe we were born to find each other

when you were a child and
I was that flower
that bloomed with the early
rains every summer

the years roll by
and he learns a few things
he falls in love and he's happy
but time won’t let him go
and it breaks his heart open
there is sorrow for a while

there are similar stories
to the one you’re living now
there’s no way to know what can happen
and millions of ways
running through the maze
we keep going around

Long ago you used to be my brother
Long ago you used to be my friend
maybe we were born to find each other


when you were a child and
I was that flower that
bloomed with the early
rains every summer

then I was the child and
you were the clouds that
taught me to see
nothing’s forever

then you were the child and
I was the river that
sang to you softly
until you were sleeping

then I was the child and
you were the mountain that
gathered the rainfall and
filled up the fountain

then you were the child and
I was the forest where
you used to play until
your mother called for you

then I was the child and
you were the movement of
wind on the water that
brought us together

then you were the child and
I was that flower and
we knew each other
only in summer
