  • Rolled in as wild and free
    As a clear water beach at seventeen memory
    Eyes blue as the July sky
    Sent shivers down my spine
    Every time that he smiled at me

    The way he took off that white t-shirt
    The way he looked walking out of that water
    And it just got hotter, and hotter

    The tan line's fading on my sun kissed skin
    Hits me like a wave when I think about it
    Sublime on the boom box
    Our bare feet in the sand
    Makin' out on the boardwalk
    My heart on fire in his hands, yeah

    He drove away the first of September
    But I remember
    Yeah I remember
    He talked like
    And he walked like
    And he looked like
    And he burned like summer, summer, oh
    He burned like summer, summer, oh

    His kiss was a sweet salt breeze
    Had a hold on me like the moon pulls the tide
    Took me up on the Ferris wheel
    And I swear it feels like I never came down from the high

    I know we never said forever
    But something about it felt like it would never end

    The tan line's fading on my sun kissed skin
    Hits me like a wave when I think about it
    Sublime on the boom box
    Our bare feet in the sand
    Makin' out on the boardwalk
    My heart on fire in his hands, yeah

    He drove away the first of September
    But I remember
    Yeah I remember
    He talked like
    And he walked like
    And he looked like
    And he burned like summer, summer, oh

    Bottle rocket sparks in the Florida sky
    Summer, summer
    Something that bright's gotta burn out some time

    The tan line's fading on my sun kissed skin
    Hits me like a wave when I think about it
    Sublime on the boom box
    Our bare feet in the sand
    Makin' out on the boardwalk
    My heart on fire in his hands, yeah

    He drove away the first of September
    But I remember
    Yeah I remember
    He talked like
    And he walked like
    And he looked like
    And he burned like summer, summer
    Yeah
    He burned like summer, summer
    He burned like summer Writer/s: CASSADEE BLAKE POPE, EMILY MARIE SHACKELTON, KELLY ARCHER
