lyrics

starlight reaching through the night
zigzag smile kissing me goodnight
scrap heap wings and rusted strings obey
the laws of harmony, summertime’s a young man’s fling

sunlight racing after me
learn to fight foes i’ll never meet
look at him play martian hymns about
a life of innocence, summertime’s a young man’s whim

i’ll give you all we have for just a little piece of you
i’ll keep it clean and warm, i’ll give it back when i am through
a little bitty piece would do, i know you’d do it for me too

smokin’ their lucky reds and dressed up like silhouettes
they look good, only they won’t get to fill the hole inside
the never-ending appetite
tokin’ their tight roulettes and playing with twin brunettes
they’ll look good till the bitter end, they watch the time go by
they don’t get a reason or a why

sometimes when i’m all alone
i think of life back when i was young
’88 was so great, i thought it would not ever end
summertime’s a young man’s whim

i’ll give you all we have for just a little bit of you
i’ll keep it clean and warm, i’ll give it back when i am through
a little bit of you would do, i hope you’d do it for me too

help us to understand and help us to rock the band
yeah help us to give a damn before we are too late
we don’t wanna’ miss another day
turn us into shooting stars then teach us how to play the parts
then take us to a place that’s far away from where we are
tell us who to be and who we are
