In the summertime,
I don't know if the stars were aligned.
We'd stumble onto something we would like
And I'm afraid I lost the words tonight

And in your summer dress, was holding you
But you were holding less
It's not the words, it's the ones you stress
I love as I love you just don't love me less

And once in a while,
I know our hearts beat of time.
And once in a while,
I know they'll fall back in line.

And in the summertime,
I don't know if the stars were aligned
We'd stumble onto something we would like
And I'm afraid I lost the words tonight

And when we're middle aged,
You tell me I loved you like a renegade
And how I say the things that make you sway.
And mostly I tell you you did the same.

And once in a while,
I know our hearts beat out of time.
And once in a while,
I know they'll fall back in line.

Our love is strong.
Our love is strong.
Our love is strong.
While my heart's still pumping blood.

    General CommentAbsolutely gorgeous... my friend recommended this album to me ages ago, and I finally have that clarity that comes with a new album. The niche it fills, or the resonance with my experiences that solidifies it a place in my CD rack. Or at least gets it stuck in my head for a few months
