The summer is coming
We should all stand clear
Of the heat and high water
You don't see - but you'll hear
The porch light gives off
Small lit circles
How - you could see nothing

Wake up in water
You know where you've been
You can turn the lights off
When the day begins
All the warm refusals
And the blind assumptions
How this could be something

Cutting corners
With their faces
You know better
Than to say it

All we are is friends
You know that all we are is friends
Good luch yeah - all we are is friends
I'll be happy right here to say that you win

The summer is on us
The handle is hers
Far out past the fences
No more kind words

For the seasons swimmers
Old beginners
No - this is not something

    General Commentwow probably the best matt pond pa song. i love it. i think he is talking about the feeling when two friends find themselves in love, or one friend is in love with the other, but they will never pursue the relationship. he knows that it is something, but either the feeling isnt returned, or the girl refuses to give him a chance at a relationship. such a beautiful song.

    General Commentthis song is about longing for love in the summer, somewhat naively, because -like burningtonight said- it's sadly an unanswered love... i think the song catches that sense of wild anticipation very well.

    General CommentA few corrections:
    "we all should stand clear"

    "How - you could say nothing" (I'm pretty sure he's saying "say" not "see," although I suppose see fits in with the lighting thing, but say also fits in with the other senses - see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil maybe? I always thought it was about the couple avoiding the inevitable phrase "just friends" even though they both know that's all it is. Maybe I'm just hearing what I want to hear.)

    "all the warm refusals,
    blind assumptions" (this was just kinda nitpicking I guess. The line, I think, is about people seeing what they want to see in the relationship despite what's actually there.)

    "Cutting corners,
    without faces" - sort of like ending it without burning your bridges - it's a mutual end.

    "for seasoned swimmers, old beginners, know
    this is not something..." -- basically he's saying he's been here before, and all the familiar signs are there that this relationship is going nowhere.

    Love the way the music just resonates the truth of the words; it's bittersweet and fits perfectly.
