Til Summer Comes Around

Album: Defying Gravity (2009)
Charted: 58
  • Another long summer's come and gone
    I don't know why it always ends this way
    The boardwalk's quiet and the carnival rides
    Are as empty as my broken heart tonight

    But I close my eyes and one more time
    We're spinning around and you're holding on tightly
    The words came out, I kissed your mouth
    No Fourth of July has ever burned so brightly
    You had to go, I understand
    But you promised you'd be back again
    And so I wander 'round this town
    'Til summer comes around

    I got a job working at the old park pier
    And every summer now for five long years
    I grease the gears, fix the lights, tighten bolts, straighten the tracks
    And I count the days til you just might come back

    And then I close my eyes and one more time
    We're spinning around and you're holding on tightly
    The words came out, I kissed your mouth
    No Fourth of July has ever burned so brightly
    You had to go, I understand
    But you swore you'd be back again
    And so I'm frozen in this town
    'Til summer comes around
    And it comes around

    And I close my eyes and you and I
    Are stuck on the Ferris wheel rocking with the motions
    And Hand in hand we cried and laughed
    Knowing that love belonged to us girl, if only for a moment
    And "Baby I'll be back again" you whispered in my ear
    But now the winter wind is the only sound
    And everything is closing down
    'Til summer comes around
    'Til summer comes around
    'Til it comes around
    And it comes around Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
