Summer Breaking

Album: Uptown Special (2015)
  • Driving through Ghost-town
    Metal horses a thousand feet high
    Orange sky

    Pulling your top down
    In the back of some pretty boy's ride
    You get high

    Avenues
    Empty as .44 clips
    Cargo ships, teen zombies ghost-riding their whips
    (See how they play)

    You're always summer breaking
    Running wild in the streets after dark
    You're always summer breaking
    Hanging out with the boys in the park
    Summer is gone
    (You're gonna need someone to break your fall)

    Give him a haircut
    In the old kitchen chair in your yard
    Saint Delilah

    He thinks you care
    Does he know you're too bright and too hard
    Like a diamond

    Play your game
    Play him the way you played me
    Be the girl you pretend to pretend not to be
    (See how they play)

    You're always summer breaking
    Running wild in the street after dark
    You're always summer breaking
    Hanging round with the boys in the park
    Summer is gone
    (You're gonna need someone)
    Summer is gone
    (You're gonna need something)
    Summer is gone
    (You're gonna need someone to break your fall) Writer/s: MARK RONSON, JEFFREY BHASKER, MICHAEL CHABON, KEVIN PARKER
