lyrics

SUMMERTIME KIDS

Those summertime kids / They’re drifting away / We did what we did / Knowing they could never stay / So drop what you’re carrying / Let it lay where it lands / There are so many things / That we will never understand / But we go down, down, down, down / It’s all up to you / And we spin round, round, round, round / And try and see straight through / But there’s nothing that we can do / So take a look round now / From your place in the line / There is no one in front of you now / Only footsteps behind / There is the shadow / And there is the sun / They’re so far apart / But see how each needs the other one / Drunk on ocean / Blinding with light / Let’s kick the commotion / Away for the night / And not go down, down, down, down / It’s all up to you / And we spin round, round, round, round / And try and see straight through / But there’s nothing that we can do / So take a look round now / From your place in the line / There is no one in front of you now / Only footsteps behind / It don’t matter what you do / The weight of the world / Will always be waiting for you / An unfinished painting / In a driveway sale / In its incomplete way / It tells the total tale / Those summertime kids / They will go where they will / But see how they fall in line / And march right up that hill / And follow you down, down, down, down / It’s all up to you / And we spin round, round, round, round / And try and see straight through / But there’s nothing that we can do / So take a look round now / From your place in the line / There is no one in front of you now / Only footsteps behind
