Summer's here, the sunlight greets the day
The winters gone, there's no more rain today...
And if I could, I'm sure that I would take your pain away
So ain't it funny how, after trying to find my way home
I'm in the middle now and I won't get lost again

Cause in the winter time, when everything is grey
And in the summer time, into the month of May
I get a feeling that it's all so temporary
And that's the feeling that can take my blues away

Tired of the way that I'm feeling everyday
And I feel it in my head...woo-hoo-hoo...
Tired of the way that I'm feeling everyday
And I feel it in my head now, my head now

It's beautiful, the way it's meant to be...beautiful, but it 'don't do shit' for me...
So peel away a little skin and choke upon the bone
And ain't it funny how, after trying to find my way home,
I'm in the middle now, and I won't get lost again.

But you don't know, how or when it's gonna go

You don't know.

    General CommentI don't think he is literally talking about the seasons. I think he is comparing the different moods to seasons. Summer is happiness, winter is depression, etc. I am bipolar, and I wrote a poem once that compared the seasons changing to mood shifts.

    My InterpretationThe way Devin writes his music makes it incredibly flexible for it's meaning. Anyone could listen to a song of his, and apply it to a point in their life, giving the song a special meaning for that person. Honestly, it's beautiful.
    Anyway, when I listen to this song, it reminds me of all the times I have risen up from a depression, finally escaping it. The winter was gone, there was no more rain. Those times were only temporary, for now the summer was here, and the sunlight greeted the day. Therefore, this song sounds like one man realizing he was tired of the way he was feeling everyday, and was finally able to escape the rut he was trapped within.

    General CommentThis song, to me is about Devin's experiences living with with Bi-Polar disorder. Some people with this disorder are really affected by the seasons. Their moods seem to shift from happy to sad depending on the ammount of sunlight they get. Being affected by the same seasonal disorder I could go alot more in depth with explaining the lyrics but read up on it.

    General CommentA very uplifting song, compared to the past two (Nobody's Here and Tiny Tears). Near the end of the song there are some backwards lyrics that say something along the lines of "Well, ladies and gentlemen, you've reached the end of another album..."

    General CommentThere was one summer I spent painting my dad's girlfriend's house in the dullest, most white-bread suburb imaginable. I adopted Terria as my personal soundtrack for that summer, and this song summed everything up for me.
    It was a very depressing summer for me, and I did a lot of growing up during those few months.
    So to me, the song is kind of about doing a little bit of growing up and figuring things out for yourself.

    General CommentThis song is about the vapidity of pop music in general. I think this line sums it up pretty well...

    It's beautiful, the way it's meant to be...beautiful, but it 'don't do shit' for me...

    The beginning is "typical pop" lyrically, and the track is full of cliches. Even the chorus delivery ("oo-oo-OO-oo-oo-aa--ee") is a play on pop runs.
