Walking along beneath the lights of that miracle mile
Me and Mary making our way into the night
You can hear the cries from the carnival rides, the pinball
Bells, and the skee ball signs
Watching the summer sun fall out of sight

There's a warm wind coming in from off of the ocean
Making it's way past the hotel walls to fill the street
Mary is holding both of her shoes in her hand
Said she likes to feel the sand beneath her feet

And in the morning I'm leaving, making my way back to Cleveland
So tonight I hope that I will do just fine
And I don't see how you could ever be
Anything but mine

There's a local band playing at the seaside pavilion
And I got just enough cash to get us in
And as we are dancing, Mary's wrapping her arms around me

And I can feel the sting of summer on my skin

In the midst of the music
I tell her I love her
And we both laugh, cause we know it isn't true
Oh, but Mary, there's a summer drawing to an end tonight
And there's so much that I long to do to you

But in the morning I'm leaving, making my way back to Cleveland
So tonight I hope that I will do just fine
And I don't see how you could ever be
Anything but mine

And in the morning I'm leaving, making my way back to Cleveland
So tonight I hope that I will do just fine
And I don't see how you could ever be
Anything but mine

Mary, I don't see how you could ever be
Anything but mine

In the morning I'm leaving, making my way back to Cleveland
So tonight I hope that I will do just fine
Hey, I don't see how you could ever be
Anything but mine

    General CommentAt some points, I really don't understand this song. It does sound like a summer romance and very important and intimate. The (supposed) guy singing says that he hopes he does "just fine", whether that's sex or just saying good-bye, but if that's true, why does he tell her he loves her and they both "just laugh because it isn't true?" Apparently, it must really have been a sex/animal thing. I do love the song, though; it has a soothing effect on me, like even though they're saying good-bye, they know everything will still be okay.
