  • It was the start of the summer and the days were getting hotter, yeah
    18 was just around the corner
    And mamma made plans for a party by the pool side
    I blew out the candles, smiling and laughing
    Sister sneaking wine while the camera was flashing
    You grabbed my hand right on time
    You looked so cute with your tattoo and your blue jeans
    And you said to me

    Let's go flying
    Take me anywhere the wind blows
    No use crying, we're not thinking 'bout tomorrow
    We drug out those summer nights
    For a long teenage goodbye

    Chasing fireworks flashing down the Carolina shore, yeah
    Arms around me and you called me yours
    That salty kiss made me forget about my sunburn
    Snuck in barefoot through a hole the wall
    Got to do some karaoke till they yell last call
    Sing with the birds, every season has a turn, turn, turn

    So let's go flying
    Take me anywhere the wind blows
    No use crying, we're not thinking 'bout tomorrow
    We drug out those summer nights
    For a long teenage goodbye

    A chill in the air's just around the bend
    You said we're never gonna get this time back again
    Back again

    So let's go flying
    Take me anywhere the wind blows
    No use crying, we're not thinking 'bout tomorrow
    We drug out those summer nights
    For a long teenage goodbye
