Italian Summer

Album: In Your Dreams (2011)
  • The rose stood out
    Red against the golden wall
    The sun comes up through the silken drapes
    The room begins to glow
    All in cream-colored ivories and soft yellow
    You say hello
    Put down that guitar and handed me a rose

    At the end of the Italian summer
    It rains fast and it rains hard
    The wind blows through you
    It tears you apart

    Ooh it's so romantic
    Hey it's so soulful
    The rain falls down
    And the thunder rolls

    The sun fades out
    And the mountains grow tall
    The mists rush in and they take it all
    From the islands you see, Li Galli and Capri
    I remember it all
    Love was everywhere
    You just had to fall

    At the end of the Italian summer
    It rains fast and it rains hard
    The wind blows right through you
    Tears you apart
    Ooh it's so romantic
    Hey it's so soulful
    The rain falls down
    And the thunder rolls

    At the end of the Italian summer
    It rains fast and it rains hard
    The wind blows right through you
    Tears you apart
    Ooh it's so romantic
    Hey it's so soulful
    Rain falls down
    And the thunder rolls

    At the end of the Italian summer
    It rains fast and it rains hard
    The wind blows right through you
    It tears you apart
    Ooh it's so romantic
    Hey it's so soulful
    The rain falls down
    And the thunder rolls

    The sun fades out
    And the mountains grow tall
    Then the mists rush in and they take it all
    From the islands you see, Li Galli and Capri
    I remember it all
    You just had to fall Writer/s: STEVIE NICKS, DAVE STEWART
