these violent delights have violent ends, and in their triumph die, like fire and powder, which as they kiss consume -Romeo and Juliet, William Shakespeare

Summertime is livin’ easy,
When the wind blows oh so free,
And I’m in your arms exactly,
Where I’m supposed to be.
Well can you see the love around us?
From the sidewalk to the sea.
It’s like breaking all these chains,
And found the Lord in front of me.

(Verse 1)
Cheap talk and your crazy walk,
Up and down the street.
Can’t believe I’m oh so lucky,
When you’re smiling next to me.
It’s the sunshine in your eyes,
The way you catch me by surprise,
And then I realize I belong right here,
There’s nothing in my way.


(Verse 2)
It’s the ice cream stain,
On your white t-shirt,
Kickin’ up dust and rolling in the dirt.
Feel the earth beneath our souls,
For the first time.
Can you believe it never felt so right,
For so long?
It’s the time, the place, the season,
Where both our hearts’ belong.
I guess that’s why…


And when the daytime fades behind the trees,
And stars light up the night with ease,
Never could a word describe my smile,
Because I know we’ll never leave.
It’s the memory in your heart that says,
“Please, don’t ever leave me,”
When you kiss the air
And face tomorrow’s chance.
(Repeat Chorus and fade…) <3
