She was soft
She was unbroken
Dressed in the pink
That she wore as a token
To the summer
To the summer

Always clean
Always precautious
She was the devil
And she danced with the roses
In the summer...

She was rhyme
She was the reason
I left my life
For a sole that was freezing
In the summer...

Always cold, always in endearing
Sweet in the woods
She was naked and kneeling
In the summer...

A thought came down
And washed away the hurt
And there's always something
You can learn

A thought came down
And washed away the hurt
And there's always something
You can learn

Maybe wrong
Way beyond redemption
Caught between
My desire and intention
To protect her
From the summer...

I gave my word i would only teach her
Deep in believing
That the wisdom would release her
From her keepers
And the summer

Overwhelmed, primitive emotions
Struck by the river
That was screaming for the ocean
In the summer...

Silent now
No-one else beguiling
Lost in thew woods
I will always hear her crying
In the summer...

A thought came down
And washed away the hurt
And there's always something
You can learn

A thought came down
And it washed away the hurt
And there's always something
You can learn

You can learn

    General Commentif I'm correct this song is on one of the albums by IAMX. Definitely not sneaker pimps but I understand the mixup since IAMX's lead singer is the former lead for sneaker pimps. Great song.. Good day All!

    My InterpretationThis song is about a relationship with a girl who is too young. Hence the name "Lolita." I've never read the book, so I'm not sure if the lyrics have to do with any specific events related to it. I'm just going based on my experience being with and older man.

    She was soft
    She was unbroken
    Dressed in the pink
    That she wore as a token
    To the summer
    To the summer

    This is describing her youth. Unbroken meaning either "a virgin" or emotionally/mentally unbroken.

    Maybe wrong
    Way beyond redemption
    Caught between
    My desire and intention
    To protect her
    From the summer...

    By "desire" he really means his sexual desire. Being attracted to someone underage is extremely confusing and complicated. You want to act on your strong sexual desire for her, but at the same time you couldn't because you love her and would be hurting her in the long run. You often feel guilty and like you're doing something wrong. You just can't help it, especially when the girl is a tease. Pedophiles, Hebephiles, and Ephebophiles actually have it really hard and I pity them.

    Btw I think the correct lyrics are

    A FLOOD came down
    And it washed away the hurt

    I could be wrong tho.
