One of the things I never told you guys
How every summer barely made it out alive
How all the friends I had were in my head
Built an altar that surrounded my bed
And said, "set fire to me!"
But nothing happened to me

Over the summer
Over the summer (Wings grow over and hover, over and hover over me)

What kind of angel'd show their face around here?
I'm tired of being alone
But there's not much of a choice around here
I'm tired of being alone
I'm good at being alone
But I'm tired of being alone

Over the summer
Over the summer (Wings grow over and hover, over and hover over me)

Suffer the bad days
Suffer the insecurities
Suffer the consequences
Of keeping your mouth shut
Suffer the consequences
Of not keeping your mouth shut

'Cause what I got left of my mind
That hasn't been twisted or altered by outside stimuli
Tells me what's right from wrong
And hopefully wakes me up in time before you're gone

Over the summer
Over the summer (Wings grow over and hover, over and hover over me)

Over the summer (x5)
Over the summer (Wings grow over and hover, over and hover over me)

Over the summer (x5)
Over the summer (Wings grow over and hover, over and hover over me)

Over the summer (x4)

    General CommentThis is such an amazing song! I dont quite understand it. I just really love the melody and the music. If I had to make an opinion on what this song means well...
    I guess from what i get from it, is when rob was in his school days, he might have been a unpopular kid, or just hormoning, and was a shut in who was depressed. thats just what i get from it. Now if he was unhappy and tried to hurt himself i dont know. Its a weird song.
    Anyway Rob is the coolest guy. He is truly my kinda musician. Hes not superficial from what i get and just loves playing music and loves his family. Love his beard and that he writes some of the best catchiest music i ever heard! Love you ROB!!!

    General CommentFreaking love this song!!! Had it in my head all day today. Sounds like he's talking about an Guardian Angel watching over him while he does silly stuff and wondering how he made it out alive and thinking someone or something is watching over him.
