Girl, you remind me of summertime
But now you need time to clear your mind
You're tripping over what is wrong and right
Just decide, I've been waiting all night

[Chorus:]
Think back, think back, to the summertime
I would cross through these state lines
You were always on my mind
It should not be this hard to see
How to get from point A to B
Without losing sleep, without losing sleep

I will follow the electric lines
With my electric heart I then will find
A way through all these damn street signs
But I'll be there, I'll wait by your side
Ooo, by your side

[Chorus]

We spin, we spin
And fall onto the floor
You're such a lovely lady
We spin, we spin
And circle round once more
Though it's making me crazy, yeah

[Chorus] [x2]

    General Commentabout a long distance summer relationship?
    I'm usually awful at interpreting lyrics; that's just what it sounds like to me.

    My Interpretationi love this song. the way i see it reminds me of this relation this girl and i have. i think they have been chasing each other in circles, like one would like the other, but they would never like each other at the same time. now he is finally calling her out on it because he is tired of the way it is effecting his life. but she is unsure of how she feels, and doesn't know what to do. so i think he is asking her to think back to the summertime, when i am guessing the two had the most fun together and it was apparent to everyone that they liked each other. and i think he is just trying really hard to be with her, even though she can't seem to make up her mind, and it has been making him lose sleep. everytime he sees her he remembers all the fun they used to have.

    General CommentI really, really like this song. I just bought it. At first I was unsure if I loved it, it was kind of sitting in the shadows of the other new songs I had just bought from other artists(like Go Radio, Just Surrender, Let's Get It, and Between the Trees). Then, I realized even though I was listening to some of the other songs on repeat, this was always the song that would be stuck in my head for the rest of the night. Now, I love it. No more shadows for you, Autumn!


    If you like this artist, I'd also reccomend Go Radio, Mayday Parade, Just Surrender, Let's Get It, YouMeAtSix, Hey Monday, A Rocket to the Moon, Every Avenue, The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus and Hit the Lights.
    (I know I love artist suggestions that is the same genre of music I like. Just thought I'd help!). : )

    General CommentFew corrections...

    instead of "How'd you get from point A to B", its...
    "How to get from point A to B"

    and

    instead of "A way through all these dancing times", its...
    "A way through all these damn state signs"

    General CommentJ12 is right, it's "damn state signs"
    and it's "we spin, we spin" instead of "we scream"

    Such a great song though!

    General CommentI agree with Delli i think it's just about this guy saying all this stuff trying to get this girl to be with him and he would do anything for her example "I would cross through these state lines"
