I wish that the sun would go behind the Hancock building
And cast a shadow over me and cover me this morning
Like the covers that you stole last night
But all I see is this blinding light
That I will not let play tricks on my eye
Yesterday was one degree
From the hottest day in local history
And they had me working on the patio
All day long while the radio
Played the same five summer staples
Over and over

I don't believe in summer anymore
I don't believe in sunlight shining through the window to the kitchen floor
I don't believe in much the way that I believed before
I don't believe in summer anymore

I'm bitter about every hour that I've spent all these years
Working nametag jobs in strip mall towns and tourist traps out on the pier
Remember that summer in Cornersville Trace
When you were working at the discount place
And sometimes when the restaurant let me out in time
I'd drive over to talk to you
On the pretense of buying a tape or two
And behind the counter in garden supplies
We'd eat from a bag of stolen fries
If I'd kept all of my nametags I could cover a goddamn wall by now

I don't believe in summer anymore
I don't believe in sunlight shining through the window to the kitchen floor
I don't believe in much the way that I believed before
I don't believe in summer anymore

Then there was that summer when I was home from school
And clerking afternoons at the video store while you watched kids at the city pool
And since they'd given you the master key
You'd sneak in after hours with me
Rest our feet in the shallow end and stare up at the sky
You'd say "are you sleeping? Are you close?
Are you dreaming? Just almost?"
And I'd see you looking down at me
As though you were in love with me
But it was just a trick of the summer weather, I'm old enough to know that now

I don't believe in summer anymore
I don't believe in sunlight shining through the window to the kitchen floor
I don't believe in much the way that I believed before
I don't believe in summer anymore
