"Summer" as written by Tom Maginnis, Bill Janovitz and Chris Colbourn....
Sight unseen, sadder seas
Summer song sung all along
Dragged across the seven seas
To the beach come follow me

Summer's gone a summer song
You've wasted every day, every day

Cellophane, a grandma's town
Summer's letters on the ground
Seven pins, the fall begins
When the leaves burn, summer ends

Summer's gone a summer song
You've wasted every day, every day
Summer's gone, can't wipe it off my hands
Write it in the sand, in the sand

Where've my heroes gone today?
Mick and Keith and Willie Mays
Broken windows trails outside
I can take you for a ride

Summer's gone a summer song
You've wasted every day, every day
Summer's gone, can't wipe it off my hands
Write it in the sand, in the sand
In the sand

Summer's gone a summer song
You've wasted every day, every day
Summer's gone, can't wipe it off my hands
Write it in the sand, in the sand
In the sand
In the sand
In the sand
In the sand

    General CommentBeautiful song. I think it's about memories of summers when you were younger and could do whatever you wanted. Reminds me of summer, oddly enough. :)

    General CommentWicked song, masterful. I love songs about childhoods spent wasting time on long hot summer days. I am a big baseball fan but baseball meant alot more to me as an innocent 11-14 year old or until you find out that its business more than a game. in the 50s, 60s and 70s it wasnt like that. I am the same age as BT , I can totally relate to this song, however everyone has spent July-August in idle bliss can relate too. Typical mournful BT chord selection and passionate wailing. The song is so raw. "You waaaaasted Evereeeee Daaaaaaay" classic , love it.
