Things seem to get less tense
Things seem to make more sense
The stuff that bothers me well it’s still there
But suddenly I don’t really seem to care
And people don’t seem to be all that bad
Situations don’t get me quite so mad
And I know that absolutely nothing has changed but suddenly it feels like everything’s been rearranged

And even though it’s hot outside
Even though it’s hot outside
Even though it’s hot outside
I’m going to chill out and keep my cool in late august

Pride and ego start winding down
Hate and mistrust are buried underground
And I’m not so hard-pressed to be everybody’s friend
Cause I know that everything will work out in the end
And times getting more valuable everyday
And it all seems way too important not to say
And everything will be so different in a year
As the world keeps turning and our lives are just a gift

Cause even though it’s hot outside
Even though it’s hot outside
Even though it’s hot outside
I’m going to chill out and keep my cool in late august

Back to school sales and reruns on TV
Temporary loss of long-term memory
Downtown traffic and the technicalities
And I feel too good to let it all get to me

Cause even though it’s hot outside
Even though it’s hot outside
Even though it’s hot outside
I’m going to chill out and keep my cool in late august

Cause even though it’s hot outside
Even though it’s hot outside
Even though it’s hot outside
I’m going to chill out and keep my cool in late august

    General CommentThis reminds me of "monsoon" by Jack Johnson, if only because both of them are about "not letting life drag you down" and just moving forward.
    But this song, more or less, is about just chilling and digging life.
    Great song. =)
