Bianca:
Started with my brother, first man I loved
Or should I say that he loved me
I was in second grade, he was fourteen
In the shady of the trees
There was a summer breeze
Whole thing's a blurry dream
Behind the house quiet as a mouse
He told me not to breathe
A secret hard to keep
I didn't know till thirteen
But by then I knew just what to do
It was just an old routine
All the boys they fell in love with me
All the boys had a thing for me

Sierra:
You see me trying to smile up on this pole
But I'm just hiding the pain that’s deep in my soul
You wanna fuck me
I already know
You wanna fuck me and toss me back on the floor

Bianca:
My mama she always said to me
I am the brightest star
In life, I'm sure to go so far
But i been at this club about four years
And now hooked on dope, crying in the mirror
When we were just little girls
We learned to dance in mama’s pearls
Baby bend over and shake that ass for me
Hoping you fall in love with me
I could make love to you for free
We could just get a place and start a life
And try to make things right

Sierra:
You see me trying to smile up on this pole
But I'm just hiding the pain that’s deep in my soul
You wanna fuck me I already know
You wanna fuck me and toss me back on the floor

Bianca:
I was just trying to smile You were just fourteen
And I, I was trying to smile

    Song Meaning"To me, this song is about a life of sexual abuse, depression, and heartbreak. Its like a life story of a woman who is now at this point in her life where she is now a stripper, maybe her soul is numbed now and she is beautifully broken. she can only think of the melancholy nostalgia and her broken soul

    "My mama always said 'you're the brightest star'
    In life, you're sure to go so far
    Been at this club about four years
    Hooked on dope, crying in the mirror
    When we were just little girls
    We learned to dance in mama’s pearls"

    and now she is trying to hold back as she sees this insensitive guy who doesn't care anout her whatsoever. just her body. a sexual object. and all she can think about is how this guy only wants to fuck her and can't even come to his senses to see the pain that is in her life and soul. a strange twist on the sexist akon song. well done by them.

    General CommentI have a question, and I thought it was appropriate to ask it hear.
    In the Live version of this song, sometimes Bianca (Coco) sings "Simon, my brother..."
    Now, when I heard her say 'Simon...' I immediately thought back to their other song, "Lemonade", where in the live version of that song, she sometimes also adds the name "Simon" after singing - 'It sped round every corner Calling out his name... This made me question who Simon is exactly... and whether what the opening lyrics mention in "Summer Breeze" is what happened between her and Simon, her brother... I don't know, can someone help clarify whether Simon and the events based around him are real,or whether he is rather a personification or made-up character for thematic symbolism...?

    General CommentI was also interested in the connection to their half-brother Simon, who died before they started their third album The Adventures of Ghosthorse and Stillborn. That album is supposed to be partly about that. And of course Lemonade starts out being about Simon's death.

    But Bianca does NOT sing "Simon" in this song (Summer Breeze). In every recording I've been able to find online, she sings "started with my brother". So I don't believe this song is autobiographical at all, which isn't strange considering that Bianca didn't use to be a stripper who was hooked on dope.

    I changed the lyrics now. But I see that the wrong version is all over the web.

    General CommentFrom what I've seen, it seems to be called "Summer Breeze" when Sierra raps the "You see my trying to smile..." part, but is called "You Wanna Fuck Me" when that part is sung rather than rapped.
