"Sunshine (That Acid Summer)" as written by Art Alexakis, Craig Montoya and Greg Eklund....
You roll and tumble
With your big heart falling
You roll and tumble alone

You reach forever
With your dirty hands holding
You reach for something you will never know

I heard you singing
In a taco bell bathroom
I heard you singing a cheap trick song

We sang surrender
All the way to county line

When I listen to that song now
It makes me think of summertime

That acid summer
We were wasted and happy
We were laughing in the sunshine

You twist and turn
With your bright eyes shining
You twist and turn in the California sun

You wait forever
For the life that you dream of
You wait for something that will never come

You twist and turn in a slow motion day dream
You twist and turn in your own sweet hell

I don't get so close to the fire anymore
But when I think about you now
It makes me think of summertime

That acid summer
We were wasted and happy
We were laughing in the sunshine

Laughing in the sunshine
In the sunshine

You twist and turn
With your bright eyes shining
You twist and turn in the California sun

You wait forever
For the life that you dream of
You wait for something that will never come
Never ever come

You twist and turn in a slow motion free fall
You twist and turn in your own good time

I can't watch you twisting and turning and turning anymore
You know I never thought a good time
Would turn into a lifestyle
I just can't watch it anymore

But when I think about that summertime
It always seems to make me smile

Yeah that acid summer
We were wasted and happy
We were laughing in the sunshine

Go

We were laughing in the sunshine

Go
