  • I can't sleep, ain't no sleep a'coming
    I'm just lying here thinking 'bout you
    I'm in deep, falling deep into the picture
    In my mind of everything we're gonna do

    Over at the lake and down by the river
    You can feel it start to rise
    Wanna jump in my car, go wherever you are
    'Cause I need you by my side

    It's gonna be a long, hot summer, we should be together
    With your feet up on the dashboard now
    Singing along with the radio, it's such a beautiful sound
    But when you say my name in the middle of the day,
    I swear I see the stars come out
    When you hold my hand in the back of my mind,
    Just waiting on the sun to go down, the sun to go down

    I wanna see your brown skin shimmer in the sun for the first time
    I try to be the one who knows just what to do to you to get me that smile
    One chance of meeting, you were walking by me on the street and I said hi
    And that was the beginning of my heart spinnin' like these wheels in my head tonight

    It's gonna be a long, hot summer, we should be together
    With your feet up on the dashboard now
    Singing along with the radio, it's such a beautiful sound
    But when you say my name in the middle of the day,
    I swear I see the stars come out
    When you hold my hand in the back of my mind,
    Just waiting on the sun to go down, the sun to go down

    The only place that I wanna be is where you are
    'Cause anymore than a heartbeat away is just too far

    It's gonna be a long, hot summer, we should be together
    All I really want is more than this moment right now
    'Cause when you say my name in the middle of the day,
    I swear I see the stars come out
    And when you hold my hand and I look into your eyes
    Oh I swear it looks like you're waiting on the sun to go down, the sun to go down

    I swear it's like you're waiting on the sun to go down
    Waiting on the sun to go down
    Hey, yeah oh, I'm loving thinking 'bout you
    I can't sleep, I'm just lying here thinkin' 'bout you Writer/s: RICHARD N. MARX, KEITH LIONEL URBAN
