When summer is done
The sun melts into autumn on the lawn
But fall doesn't last too long
And trees bear a wind
That skins their backs as winter bullies in
And winter goes on and on

I feel like dying my hair a lighter color now
'Cause winter goes on and on

If you come over now
I'll make it worth your while

Don't you wish that we could beat the weather
Hide out on some island in December
And stay all winter?

If summer could stay
Then we'd play croquet outside
Each night 'til half-past nine
While winter would pout on the sidelines
We love the beach, we could go every week
Just to see the sea and watch it move and breath
While winter stays home and whines

I feel like dying my t-shirts tie-dye colors now
'Cause winter goes on and on
Everyone, everyone's dying from dihydroxyacetone
'Cause winter goes on and on

If you come over now, girl
I will start a fire

Don't you wish that we could beat the weather
Hide out on some island in December?
Don't you wish that we could beat the weather?
Don't you want to see me moving in the water?
Don't you wish that we could beat the weather forever?

    General Commentthere is so more to this song, but i have a couple interpretations:

    1, I think this song is an allegory of depression.

    2. it's simply a love song wanting to be together and forget the world

    3. it's about wanting someone you can't have because it's un-reciprocated, they're with someone else, or timing was wrong.

    4. or you simply want to forget someone, but you want this with them. maybe one last time could change things.
