"Summer Wine" as written by and Dave Evans Adam Clayton....
The winter
Doesn't want you
It haunts you
Summer serenadings
A long way
From this frozen place
Your face
Our teacher
Our preacher
It's nature
And like flowers growing in a bomb crater
From nothing
A rose
It grows

I've been thinking about the West Coast
Not the one that everyone knows
We're sick of living in the shadows
We've one more chance before the light goes
For a summer of love
A summer of love

Freezing
We're leaving
Believing
That all we need's to head over somewhere
In a summer
To come
So we run

I've been thinking about the West Coast
Not the one that everyone knows
We're sick of living in the shadows
We've one more chance before the light goes
For a summer of love
A summer of love

Oh and when all is lost
When all is lost we find out what remains
Oh the same oceans crossed
The sun's pleasure
The sun, it's pink

I've been thinking about the West Coast
Not the one that everyone knows
In the rubble of Aleppo
Flowers blooming in the shadows
For a summer of love
A summer of love

    General CommentI made my mother listen to this one because she would'nt understand why I loved U2 so much. She asked me if I was sure this was Bono, because she never knew he could also sound like this! She obviously never bothered to really listen to U2.
    Anyway, I like this song a lot because it is a different side of Bono we don't often get to hear (except maybe for I've got you under my skin and When the stars go blue). I really like his voice, it's very low and if I would'nt know better I would think it was a real silver spurred cowboy!

    For the meanings of this song I think there raher obvious. She seduced him with her summerwine and stole his silver spurs in the end.

    General CommentWhat a beautiful song!!!! Although, to be honest, I'm refering to the version of Nancy Sinatra...
