Summer Home In Your Arms

Album: Sweet and Wild (2010)

Songfacts®:

  • Jewel discussed this song on her website: "This is an older song and falls in my Pieces of You category. It's my little brand of folksy, country hard-to-define genre. It has whimsical lyrics, and has a shuffle similar to 'You Were Meant For Me.' For those hardcores who know this song from bootlegs - it is different. I changed it from waltz time to 4/4, I created a chorus hook by changing chords, and I wrote a sweet bridge (I borrowed some lyric theme from the song I wrote with Joe Firstman, for those keeping track of how I cannibalize my own material) I added steel drum to this song, as it has a breezy quality that works perfectly with an island drum."
