"Summertime" as written by and W. Goldsmith J. Enigk....
When we roam
Faded rumors that outlast the century
Crazy heroes all painted in glass
Which way to the stars

I'll be home in the landscape of a new century
Crazy millions have all long since passed their way to the stars
Summertime
Lift back the veil that hides you and me

I can run bearing rumors all traced in the past
Painted mirrors all aging with cracks
Which way and how far
I will try to reach the landscape of where you begin

Not the reflection of what I pretend
Summertime
Lift back the veil that hides you and me
Summertime lift back the veil that hides you from me

To own opinion what do you want it to be
So I'll carry on
Faded rumors that outlive their destiny
Crazy millions have all long since passed in way to the stars

When it shines in the summertime
Lift back the veil that hides you and me
Some other time
Lift the the veil that hides you from me

    General Commentthese lyrics are wronge, and that make me sad, these are right

    when we roam
    faced rimors that outlast the century
    crazy heros all painted in glass
    which way to the stars
    ill be home in the landscape of a new century
    crazy millions have all long since passed their way to the stars
    summertime
    lift back the veil that hides you and me
    i can run bearing rumors all traced in the past
    painted mirrors all aging with cracks
    which way and how far
    i will try to reach the landscape of where you begin
    not the reflection of what i pretend
    summertime
    lift back the veil that hides you amd me
    summertime
    lift back the veil that hides you and me
    to own opinion
    what do you want it to be
    so i'll carry on
    faded rumors that outlive their destiny
    crazy millions have all lonf since passed in way to the stars
    when it shines in the summer time
    lift back the veil that hides you and me
    some other time
    lift back the veil that hides you and me

    General CommentThis is a very deep, poetic song. Jeremy is basically talking about marriage ("Lift back the veil that hides you and me") and postponing it for later time. As a fiance with his marriage due in the summer (as a lot of marriages are), he's still clinging to the bachelor life "roaming". He wants to marry his fiance, but wants to enjoy his life free a while longer before doing so. Hence the line "Lift back the veil that hides you and me, some other time"
