i wrote some songs 'cause i love her
then played some shows in the suburbs
it was the middle of summer
in texas

i was feeling pretty good then
everything worked out in school then
i was feeling like a champ then
in summer

this, this could be
the summer, the summer of love
and this, this could be
the summer when i grow up

i wanted to be just like him
he was just like all the cool kids
i wanted to wear what he wore in summer

i was feeling pretty good then
everything worked out in school then
i was feeling like a champ then
in summer

..okay

this, this could be
the summer, the summer of love
and this, this could be
the summer when i grow up

this, this could be
the summer, the summer of love
and this, this could be
the summer when i grow up

its never been like this
i am just starting over

its never been like this
(its never been like this)
i am just starting over
(i am just starting over)

this, this could be (this could be)
the summer, the summer of love (summer of love)
and this, this could be (this could be)
the summer when i grow up

this, this could be (this could be)
the summer, the summer of love (summer of love)
and this, this could be (this could be)
the summer when i grow up

    General CommentThis song reminds me of hellogoodbye.
    It's one of those addictive songs that's not even that good.
    I like the first line though.
