Left behind when summer's over
In quiet lineups by the lake
Cheating hearts descend like clouds of falling leaves
To lie and rot and wait for rain

Summer heat will you drain your blood from me
Into lawns and limpid pools where your kiss was young and cruel
Cut by cut and play by play it will always be this way
Summer love

If I could only hold your heart
And never beat again

Someone's breath against your shoulder
Someone's voice to say your name
Just as long as someone's there to break your fall
Longer shadows, shorter days

If I could only hold your heart
I'd never beat again

    General CommentAt about two minutes and thirty seconds into the song, does anyone know what the background lyrics are? All I can hear is something like 'follow me again' where the lyrics "Cut by cut and play by play it will always be this way" is.
