Sha la la la la la my lady
In the sun with your hair undone
Can you hear me now calling
Your name from across the bay
A summer's day laughing and a-hiding
Chasing love out on Thunder Island

She was the color of the Indian summer
And we shared the hours without number
Until one day when the sky turned dark
And the winds grew wild
Caught by the rain and blinded by the lightning
We rode the storm out there on Thunder Island

I held her close until the storm passed
And we fell down laughing in the wet grass
Both our bodies drying in the sunshine, sweet sunshine
So sha la la la la la my land
In the sun with your dress undone
Now ev'ry mile away and ev'ry day
Cuts a little deeper
I'll remember the nights in the cool grass
Making love out on Thunder Island

    General CommentWhat a great song. Pretty clear what its about. A teenage guy meets a girl during some sort of summer vacation. But in the end they go their seperate ways but he still thinks about her often. I think the line "Can you hear me now calling your name from across the bay" speaks about him calling her NOW, not then. He is still calling her name even after years have passed.

    General CommentWhat exactly does "She was the color of the Indian Summer" mean? I have no real idea what color would be associated with Indian Summer

    General CommentRated 0 I think the color of the indian summer line is about the beauty of Indian summer. It's warm, not too warm and makes you happy. It's also that last warmth before winter so it may mean something much more negative. She seemed warm and inviting but don't believe it. She will be gone soon.
