Seven in the morning
Sunlight on the ceiling tells the time to wake up
But we're already soaring
Through the morning routine, routine
And I'll get away with memories of you
Get away with memories of you

Eleven in the morning
Pause to taste the air and watch the trees sway slowly
Smoke is rises higher
Pain feels burning fire, fire
Just around the corner

And I wonder
Will we ever get back to the summer
Like all the ones we had when we were younger
I know if we keep driving then we'll get there
Back to friends were summer never ends
Never ends

Seven in the evening
We light the fire with our friends and swim under the stars
Work comes in the morning
But you know we don't care, don't care
Life's never been so perfect

And I wonder
Will we ever get back to the summer
Like all the ones we had when we were younger
I wonder will, will we ever get back
Get back to everything we love

And I wonder
Will we ever get back to the summer
Like all the ones we had when we were younger
I wonder will, will we ever get back
Get back to everything we love

    My OpinionAn average day in Hawaii (where the band is from).

    808 is the Hawaii area code.

    In Hawaii you are up and out by the time the sunrises. The favorite activities are surfing (before school and the tourists arrive) or just hanging around with friends.

    The correct lyrics are "Cane fields burning higher" not "pain feels". I grew up in Hawaii (three blocks away from the band; I knew them). It's definitely cane fields. I think they stopped burning the cane fields, but right near our houses there used to be some and we could watch it from our windows all the time. This song is about memories, and the cane fields, helicopters and smoke are definitely memories.

    The chorus might have to do with the drive to the North Shore (the closest beach). Like I said, I know where the band lived. Also, memories.

    There are so many great places to swim around the North Shore, little coves that you can only get to by surf board (to far to swim and to small for boat) that are beautiful. Only the locals know where. And ditching work is just great, too!
