"Summer is Over" as written by and Jonathan Michael Mclaughlin....
Autumn never seemed this cold before
Here I am sleeping on the floor
We changed just like the leaves
Outside my house
And my phone lay silent by the couch

I remember June
Back when I met you
And your eyes were green
And we were, too

But summer is over
We were tangled in the morning sun
Felt you getting colder
And we knew that we would come undone
And it's back to my town, back to your life
Gray skies are blowing a kiss goodbye to the lovers
'Cause summer is over

I can still see your silhouette
In the white hot sand
And I still feel your ring on my hand
And the clock was always ticking down
Behind that glass
Singing "love, be good while you last"

But we both knew
What we were getting into
The things we said
Sounded true

But summer is over
We were tangled in the morning sun
Felt you getting colder
And we knew that we would come undone
And it's back to my town, back to your life
Gray skies are blowing a kiss goodbye to the lovers
'Cause summer is over

The distant innocence
We are leaving far behind
Your last words will be burning in my mind
In the winter time

Well summer is over
We were tangled in the morning sun
Felt you getting colder
I knew that we would come undone
And it's back to my town, back to your life
Gray skies are blowing a kiss goodbye, goodbye

Summer is over
We were tangled in the morning sun
Felt you getting colder
And we knew that we would come undone
And it's back to my town, back to your life
Gray skies are blowing a kiss goodbye to the lovers
'Cause summer is over

    My Interpretation- their summer romance is over, just like the summer itself and he is thinking about his lover and how they changed, but still waits for a call or a text message. -

    - he is thinking about the first time they saw each other. -

    - summer is over and so is their love, he feels that the feelings they had for each other fade because he has to go home and she goes on living just like she did before the summer started. now he says that in general all summer romances are over because the season is ending. -

    - he is reminiscing about his lover and about all the good times they have been through. he always had that feeling that soon the time he was spending there would be over, but still he hoped for the best, that they should make it worth-while. -

    - they knew all along that their relationship would be hard and that it probably wouldn't last, but still all the time the things they said to each other were true or at least sounded true. -

    - they left their distant innocence far behind while they move on with their lifes, but he won't forget her and she will stay on his mind in the wintertime. -

    My InterpretationFor me its about how this relationship matches the seasons starting from spring and ending in winter. Summer was the clear high, but it wasn't meant to last and soon fall and winter came. They both seem to appreciate the good times, knowing they wouldn't last (like we all know summer will end), yet can't help but feel some regret.
