"'Til Summer Comes Around" as written by Monty Powell and Keith Lionel Urban....
Another long summer's come and gone
I don't know why it always ends this way
The boardwalk's quiet and the carnival rides
Are as empty as my broken heart tonight

But I close my eyes and one more time
We're spinning around and you're holding on tightly
The words came out, I kissed your mouth
No Fourth of July has ever burned so brightly
You had to go, I understand
But you promised you'd be back again
And so I wander 'round this town
'Til summer comes around

I got a job working at the old park pier
And every summer now for five long years
I grease the gears, fix the lights, tighten bolts, straighten the tracks
And I count the days til you just might come back

And then I close my eyes and one more time
We're spinning around and you're holding on tightly
The words came out, I kissed your mouth
No Fourth of July has ever burned so brightly
You had to go, I understand
But you swore you'd be back again
And so I'm frozen in this town
'Til summer comes around
And it comes around

And I close my eyes and you and I
Are stuck on the Ferris wheel rocking with the motions
And Hand in hand we cried and laughed
Knowing that love belonged to us girl, if only for a moment
And "Baby I'll be back again" you whispered in my ear
But now the winter wind is the only sound
And everything is closing down
'Til summer comes around
'Til summer comes around
'Til it comes around
And it comes around

    Song MeaningThis song is about a guy and a girl that meet up at the carnival or fair and have a little fling. She tells him she'll be back next summer, but she never comes back. The guy even gets a job there, waiting for her, but for the past 5 years, she never returns. He keeps playing back in his head the last time he saw her, and would probably do anything to have her back, or at least see her again.

    I dont think Ive ever heard of a song that rings so true with me. And since the song just came out now, this time last year, was the last time I was seeing a girl briefly. She pretty much told me she'll see me again, but, like this song, she disappeared. I really liked her too. :(

    General CommentThis song is gorgeous, though the bittersweet lyrics are very sad. The guitar is beautiful (3:05) and I love the intro and outro. My favorite lyrics have to be:

    Oh and I close my eyes and you and I
    Are stuck on the ferris wheel rockin' with the motion
    Hand in hand, we cried and laughed
    Knowing that love belonged to us, girl, if only for a moment

    Just saw him in Dallas last night and he was outstanding - especially on this one. :)

    General CommentI just heard this song on my way home. When I got my hands on my laptop I had to look it up on youtube. I seriously sat alone in my dark house listeming to it and started to tear up. It makes me think of how every summer me and this same guy are sorta a thing...its gone on for three years now. But, at the end of season lake trip it always kinda ends even though we would both like for it to be more.

    General CommentYou know, this is a very sad song and what not. Beautiful lyrics and greatly written, but in REALITY, don't you think he would've gotten her name, number....facebook or myspace account? And kept in touch?

    My OpinionI think this song is great, and it totally reminds me of the movie The Notebook. And I think that keith urban and noah from The Notebook look similar, but that's just my opinion.

    Anyways, love the song<3.
