Summer's End

Album: Echoes, Silence, Patience and Grace (2007)
  • Early morning without warning
    Woke me with a scare
    I had that dream again
    That the sun was dead
    Make me warm or take me home
    It's so cold in here
    Can't we meet somewhere
    Is it winter there?
    Is it winter there?
    This winter

    Meet me in the summer time
    We can move the air
    Sweet Virginia countryside
    I will meet you there
    Bloody lips and cherry wine
    Moonshine in your hair
    Just keep staring at the sun
    Pray for summer's end

    Come on over brave my storm
    Ocean's overhead
    Come inside my friend
    Getting bad out there
    Every moment we have stolen
    All we had to share
    No one wanted this
    But you know I did
    You know I did
    This moment

    Meet me in the summer time
    We can move the air
    Sweet Virginia countryside
    I will meet you there
    Bloody lips and cherry wine
    Moonshine in your hair
    Just keep staring at the sun
    Pray for summer's end

    Meet me in the summer time
    We can move the air
    Sweet Virginia countryside
    I will meet you there
    Bloody lips and cherry wine
    Moonshine in your hair
    Just keep staring at the sun
    Pray for summer's end Writer/s: DAVID ERIC GROHL, TAYLOR HAWKINS, CHRISTOPHER A. SHIFLETT, NATE MENDEL
