  • The summer wind came blowin' in from across the sea
    It lingered there, to touch your hair and walk with me
    All summer long we sang a song and then we strolled that golden sand
    Two sweethearts and the summer wind

    Like painted kites, those days and nights they went flyin' by
    The world was new beneath a blue umbrella sky
    Then softer than a piper man, one day it called to you
    I lost you, I lost you to the summer wind

    The autumn wind, and the winter winds they have come and gone
    And still the days, those lonely days, they go on and on
    And guess who sighs his lullabies through nights that never end
    My fickle friend, the summer wind
    The summer wind
    Warm summer wind
