Summer's Gone

Original and similar lyrics
Looking in a window on a rainy day. Thinking about good things that I just threw away. Looking in the gutter, watching the trash go flowing by. Thinking it's Summer, but there are only clouds in the sky. When I think about what we wasted, makes me sad, We never appreciated what we had. Now I'm standing in a doorway with my overcoat on, It really feels like Summer's gone. So alone. Summer's gone. It should have been a laugh, it should have been fun, When I think of all the things that we did last Summer. Now I look back, it seems such a crime, We couldn't appreciate it at the time. Now I'm standing in a doorway, thinking of Summers gone by. It ought to make me happy, but it just makes me want to cry. I was riding in the car with my mum and dad, He was drivin' the car, the kids were drivin' him mad. Dad looked at us, then he looked at his wife, He must have wondered where we all came from. And then mum said, Dad, you know it won't last for long, Before you know it, Summer's gone. So alone. Summer's gone. I really blew it all, when I think it through, I really lost it all when I lost you. Now I'm standing in a doorway with water in my shoes, It really feels like, feels like Summers gone. So alone. Summer's gone. Summer's gone, so alone. Summer's gone.

Sketches

DAN FOGELBERG "Netherlands"
a. Summer Late in the summer When the cottonwood dies The fields are on fire With green bottleflies And I'm still seeing reflections Of me in your eyes And why did you leave Last summer? Now, the seasons are changing From summer to fall And I've still got that picture Hung on my wall And there's so much forgotten And too much recalled And why did you leave At all? b. Winter Standing beside you Mid-winter day Hearts beating close Together. Wishing that we'd found Someway to make That moment last Forever. Standing silent--laughing-- Breathing steam Gazing down into a freezing stream... I saw the face of a child I saw the face of a child.

Sinking

ALEXI MURDOCH
Sitting quietly watching the ticking on the wall She sits patiently, she thinks maybe the world will fall She says, "I feel at times like I had it and lost it all" But there are walls are in her eyes Waiting, she says, is the hardest thing to do You don't feel like somebody else and you don't feel like you Sometimes the light around me has the strangest hue And I wonder what I'm going through And she's on fire, and her whole world is burning Yeah, she's on fire, and it feels like her whole world just keeps turning She says, "I'm so full of doubt, I don't know if I'll ever find a way out Feels like something I read in a book somewhere I've been thinking, you know I've been thinking I've thought myself into the ground, I've been thinking That I'm sinking." (Here we go) Lonely I take through and my mind begins to soar [?] She talked to anyone, so it's anyone she told There's an empty chair at the end of an empty hall And she feels small Faces smile, she's moving through a crowd The sun is shining but it's hiding a cloud She laughs from time to time but she feels a little loud And she would cry but she's too proud And she's on fire and her whole world is burning Yeah, she's on fire, and it feels like her whole world just keeps turning She says, "I'm so full of doubt, I don't know if I'll ever find a way out Feels like something I read in a book somewhere I've been thinking, you know I've been thinking I've thought myself into the ground, I've been thinking That I'm sinking." And you want to tell her that she's gonna be fine And you want to tell her that the light hurts when you've been blind She says "all I see stretching out before me is time" She says, "All I see stretching out before me is time" Oh, and you want to tell her that she's gonna be fine Oh, woman, you're drinking your sorrows like wine, now Ohhh, woman, don't you know that you're going to be fine? Don't you know that you're going to be fine?

Dried Up

Ass Ponys "Lohio"
hang dog you sitting and counting nameless stars and when you look down you're beginning to fall away you dried up like an august creekbed i mounted in an album with some photos of your summer friends i can't tell what the note on the back said you're moving like a poem and it hurts to see you going i recall the smell of summer on your skin we were seventeen and everything was pounding and it wouldn't stop it's hard to put to words what i was thinking then i don't know, we were alive or something browned off sitting amidst the endless cars and when you stall out they're beginning to pull away you dried up like an august creekbed i mounted in an album with some photos of your summer friends i can't tell what the note on the back said you're moving like a poem and it hurts to see you going i remember licking ice cream off your chin we were seventeen and everything was pounding and it wouldn't stop it's hard to put to words what i was thinking then i don't know, we were in love or something i recall the smell of summer on your skin we were seventeen and everything was pounding and it wouldn't stop it's hard to put to words what i was thinking then i don't know, we were alive or something

Summer Long

Emm Gryner
I used to be contagious Like the blue waves on my wall The 17 long years I didn't know you I still love you for them all Climbing out of highway crashes Throwing away your gun Do you ever think that maybe we're similar Just looking for someone? All summer long You made me high when I was down All summer long The city smiled when you were around But now the summer's gone And I must say something feels wrong Now the summer's gone I must say something feels wrong I used to be infectious Now I feel a continent away Chasing the ghost that haunts you Has nothing to do with you today I've been tangled up for to years straight I guess the blueprints didn't show Why must you be so dramatic? You always say you've got to go You don't know the way I feel about you
