Do you remember when we were
Going out for lifeguards
And snuck into the caves where
All the kids were smoking
And jeans were in our uniform
But not unless the calves were thin
And I will take a Polaroid
You will show me how to drink
Summertime, the hottest day
You remember, don’t you baby?
Paranoid, no prescription
You believed
I let you die

When you close your eyes
I don’t need protection
See those clouds arise
Wasn’t my intention

Lately I'm fucked up
But I don’t regret it
Feels like when we lay
Couldn't wear the crown

Darkness falls away
Then it's only golden
Where are we today?
Somewhere near our future
So it can be saved
At least it can be reckoned
Each time we come through
Darling, you will listen

    General CommentIn my opinion, this is asong about a couple of teenagers. They grow close in summer, and I think the artist is saying "no prescription" rather than "subscription", which gives me the vibe of no birth control. I get that vibe again when he says, "When you close your eyes, I don't need protection."

    Even so, looking back, he doesn't regret the action and wonders where they are today.

    That's my brief summary, anyway. ^_^

    General Commenteven if it made more sense for it to be "prescription", I think he definitely says "subscription".

    Lyric CorrectionKind of sounds more like "Feels like memory lane/ Colored with a crayon" to me.
