"Summer's Life" as written by Colin Matthew Anderson, Nicholas Gus Delffs, Nicholas J Dzaich-pounders and Jeffrey David Lehman....
The summer's life is good
We ran down on the path in the woods
To that old swimming hole
Where we laugh and sing, stories are told
We lived like children do
We were kind to them and so brand new

And I loved it then
And I wonder what happened
And may the hard times be gone
And I'll learn what I've done wrong
And let's leave it on this

I took your wonder heart
I'm sorry that I tore you apart
And the summer went away
The rains came and I could not stay
With the birds I went south
Now I'm trying to get back somehow

Because I loved it then
And I wonder what happened
And may the hard times be gone
And I'll learn what I've done wrong
And let's leave it on this

The winter's life is full of roads and cars
And hash and fuel
And I've forgotten how to talk
Words that come, good they are not
I guess I'm paying for what I've done
The unknown crime hope forgiving will come

Because I loved it then
And I wonder what happened
And I loved it then
And I wonder what happened

    General CommentI love this song...its one of those songs that gives me a certain feeling of nostalgia, the combination of music and lyrics. Sort of like "New Slang" by The Shins or "1979" by Smashing Pumpkins.
    I love that it's just guitar and clapping for a lot of it....a lovely little tune.
