"It Must Be Summer" as written by Adam L. Schlesinger and Chris Collingwood....
It must be summer
'Cause the days are long
And I dial your number
But you're gone, gone, gone
I'd set out searching
But the car won't start
And it must be summer
'Cause I'm falling apart

I try your sister
On the Jersey Shore
She said you might be stopping by
But she's not sure
So I call your mother
On Long Island Sound
She said it must be summer
'Cause you're never around

And the sun is beating me senseless
I feel defenseless like a dying lamb
I don't wan't to lie by the oceanside
Don't want to play in the sand
Can't you understand?
Can't you understand?

It must be summer
'Cause the streets are bare
And I try your number
But you're just not there
And the sun keeps shining
'Til it's dead and gone
And it must be summer
'Cause I can't go on

And the sun is beating me senseless
I feel defenseless like a dying lamb
I don't wan't to lie by the oceanside
Don't want to play in the sand
Can't you understand?
Can't you understand?

    General CommentI think this song is so simple, but so beautiful. It's always rough to feel alone and down when so many people around you think the world is beautiful and happy. We always want something more.

    General Commentthis songs good because it has such a happy feel to it with the chords used ect, but if you listen to the lyrics their quite negative, putting the two together strangely works well :)... "dying lamb" wtf!!!
