"Summer Son" as written by Robert Hodgens, Sharleen Eugene Spiteri, John Mcelhone and Eddie Campbell....
I'm tired of telling the story
Tired of telling it your way
Yeh I know what I saw
I know that I found the floor

Before you take my heart, reconsider
Before you take my heart, reconsider
I've opened the door
I've opened the door

Here comes the summer's son
He burns my skin
I ache again
I'm over you

I thought I had a dream to hold
Maybe that has gone
Your hands reach out and touch me still
But this feels so wrong

Before you take my heart, reconsider
Before you take my heart, reconsider
I've opened the door
I've opened the door

Here comes the summer's son
He burns my skin
I ache again
I'm over you

Before you take my heart, reconsider
Before you take my heart, reconsider
I've opened the door
I've opened the door

Here comes the summer's son
He burns my skin
I ache again
I'm over you

Here comes the winter's rain
To cleanse my skin
I wake again
I'm over you

Here comes the summer's son
He burns my skin
I ache again
I'm over you

Here comes the winter's rain
To cleanse my skin
I wake again
I'm over you

I'm over you

    General CommentThis song is about moving on. She talks about moving on with a man she met during the summer and with him forgot her past lover. In the end she passes over him by moving on with the winter's son, a man she probably met during the winter time.

    My InterpretationI think in this song she is trying to forget a previous love (the summer' son). She is with another person now and she is trying to move on. However, as we can see in the video, the summer's son continues appearing and she is changing between the winter rain (the new one) that should make her to forget and the summer son again and again.

    That's only what I think :-)

    My InterpretationI also think the song is about moving on. She has been struggling with a relationship with a man who hurt her somehow and now he is trying to make things work again. But something is breaking inside her - she is tired of pretending that everything is ok ("tired of telling the story, tired of telling it your way, I know what I saw...") and she is ready to fall in love again (she "opens the door" for new, fresh "summer son"), to fully experience whole range of passion with someone else ("he burns my skin, I ache again"), and she feels that this desire for something new means that she closed the door behind the old love. Thus she warns her old lover that despite his trying to fix things, it might be too late already. By the time that "winter rain" comes, she will be gone for good.
