My heart lies heavy
On dreams and expectations
And every night that I'm away from you
I'm always going
You wait with so much patience
I count the days until I'm home with you

The horizon hides Chicago
And summer brings the heat
The summer's all you need
And I won't let you down
I wont let you down
The autumn breeze blows cold
But girl I'm comin' home
And I won't let you down
I won't let you down
Oh, no

I've always heard that distances brings us closer
I don't feel close at all without you here
My stomach turns
It's love that makes me nervous
Each time it brings me closer to relief

I'm northbound toward Chicago
And summer brings the heat
The summer's all you need
And I won't let you down
I wont let you down
The autumn breeze blows cold
But girl I'm comin' home
And I won't let you down
I won't let you down

I've gotta know that you'll be mine
And I'm all you need
I know it's hard for you to say
But say you'll wait for me

Summer brings the heat
The summer's all you need
And I wont let you down
I wont let you down
The autumn breeze blows cold
But girl I'm comin' home
And I wont let you down
Oh, no

And summer brings the heat
This song is all you need
And I wont let you down
I wont let you down
The autumn breeze blows cold
But girl I'm almost home
And you won't let me down
You won't let me down

    General Commentfirst off....amazing song.
    but the lyrics are totally wrong in verse two and i have no clue where you got them

    first two lines are right but then it should be:

    wide-eyed and reckless
    well rested on the surface
    each highway brings me closer to relief



    and also the second line in the chorus is "this song is all you need". the word is not summer.



    i apologize...Asteria's my favorite band and i simply cannot stand when people get the lyrics wrong
    thanks!
