"Last Summer" as written by and Michael Richard/watkins Lewis....
The Friday sun bears down again
As we drive without friends
And on these longest days we spend
All the time trying to pretend

That our stories could be true
Our chance to be cool
The setting down says the day is through
If only we knew

And we all sit around here in our home town
Listen to the waves as they all crash down
And watch the fire as it slowly burns away
Glowing embers lie across the sky

Here by my side, in my summer, our last summer
The world passes by in my summer, our last summer
The light makes shadows fall, surrounded by each other
Alive to watch it all, the view from our last summer
The view from our last summer
We trace the sun across the sky

And we laugh till we cry
Always so hard to say goodbye (good bye)
And we all sit round here in our home town
It's so good like this, these are times we'll miss
The memories, I hope they'll never fad
Glowing embers lie across the sky

Here by my side, in my summer, our last summer
The world passes by in my summer, our last summer
The light makes shadows fall, surrounded by each other
Alive to watch it all, the view through our last summer
The view from our last summer

I would stop time to stay with you
I would stop time so we don't move
I would stop time
I would stop time
I would stop time to keep you

Here by my side, in my summer, our last summer
The world passes by in my summer, our last summer
The light makes shadows fall, surrounded by each other
Alive to watch it all, the view from our last summer

    General CommentTo me, this song is all about that last summer after high school before everyone departs for college. It could actually even refer to a summer home from college before everyone heads off towards their own calling. It's an amazing song and makes me sad.

    General CommentYeah, it's not a deep song, but I love it. They didn't play a great set at Leeds fest, but listening to this song as the sun goes down at the end of the summer with your mates was awesome.

    General CommentThis song was/is my anthem too. I left school in June and it reminds me of all the good times I shared with my friends. ("The memories, I hope they'll never fade").
