And it was summer, don't hide your sunburn, wear that shirt that cuts so low
I know you loved her, but couldn't trust her, so let's take this extra slow
Sleeping in and we're nowhere near the weekend
Waking up inside a basement with my best friends
And we changed our dreams to nine to five
But when the sun goes down is when you felt alive...

You say you'd never let this go
I say we forget what we know
Keep taking baby steps
We're still so far ahead
In summer heat we lose our clothes
And it won't hurt what they don't know
Keep taking baby steps
Cause you're so far, so far ahead...

Summer secrets keep me breathing, my old routine stopped repeating
And I'll never forget anything that happened today
The days go by but we don't change
Dear summer, I won't forget you
Walk away but I won't let you
And I'll never forget anything that happened today
The days go by but we don't change

You say you'd never let this go
I say we forget what we know
Keep taking baby steps
We're still so far ahead
In summer heat we lose our clothes
And it won't hurt what they don't know
Keep taking baby steps
Cause you're so far, so far ahead...

And here's the best part, it's got the best start
No one saw this coming from a mile away
So unexpected, I know you meant it
If I can't have you I'll dream about you
So I'll be sleeping cause this dreaming is as close as I can get to you
So close my eyes
Don't wake me up

Keep taking baby steps
Keep taking baby steps
Keep taking baby steps
Keep taking baby steps

You say you'never let this go
I say we forget what we know
Keep taking baby steps
We're still so far ahead
In summer heat we lose our clothes
And it won't hurt what they don't know
Keep taking baby steps
Cause you're so far, so far ahead

Dear summer, I won't forget you
I won't forget you
So don't forget me too

"It's gonna be summer for the next twenty years bro....I'm really drunk"

    General CommentI don't know but I really like this song...It's about all the fun stuff that happens in the summer and just don't try to do things fast...Summers are very memorable, enjoy them...

    General CommentThis song wasn't one that jumped out at me right away from the cd (Second Chances and Keep Dreaming Upside Down claimed fame to that) but this song really grew on me. It's pretty straight forward, and I agree with pianogirl; summers are really memorable.

    I love the lines,
    "You say you never let this go

    yes!

    "And here's the best part, it's got the best start
    No one saw this coming from a mile away

    If I can't have you I'll dream about you

    awwwwwwww, yes, exactly... maybe 'can't have you' just means she's not there... not that she doesn't miss him too.. that's how i get it anyway..

    General Comment"In summer heat we lose our clothes. And it won't hurt what they don't know" makes me think it's about him cheating on his girl with another girl who is also in a relationship. and he can't have her ("If I can't have you I'll dream about you") because she has a boyfriend?

    General CommentI took it as it was a summer fling, where the guy actually fell in love with the girl.
    Now, I have two meanings possible.
    They had a summer love, and she just unexpectedly left (...so unexpected, I know you meant it) but he still loves her after
    Or, she has a reputation (...but couldn't trust her) and he still loves her after a summer fling.
