Well it's time to begin as the summer sets in
It's the scene
You set for new lovers
You play your part painting in a new start
But each gate will open another

June, July and August said
It's probably hard to plan ahead
June, July and August said
It's better to bask in each others

Gatekeeper seasons wait for your nod
Gatekeeper you held your breath
Made the summer go on and on

Well they tried to stay in from the cold and wind
Making love and making their dinner
Only to find that the love that they grew in the summer

February, April said
Don't be fooled by the summer again
February, April said
That half of the year, well we'll never be friends

Gatekeeper seasons wait for your nod
Gatekeeper you held your breath
Made the winter go on and on

Gatekeeper, Gatekeeper, Gatekeeper
Seasons wait for your nod

    General Commenti think the gatekeeper is time. 'seasons wait for your nod'. you enter a relationship in the summer, not the physical june-july-august summer, but that time where you're falling in love and everything is easy. then time goes past. passions grow cold, they freeze, and they die.

    so you move on. you tell yourself, "Don't be fooled by that summer again." but it's really just a matter of time.

    beautiful song, by the way.

    General Commentthe gatekeeper is the person who keeps time the way it is...not time itself. its the entity that keeps things the same or puts change into action. its time that fools a person but the gatekeeper tries to keep time from moving on as long as possible.

    General Commentsnow melts, flowers are in bloom and the smell of spring is in the air ...resulting in someone new for the summer...

    for those that don't live in areas of 4 seasons, when spring comes after a rough winter, everyone around you is just in a better, happier mood. you can smell the lust in the air.

    to me, this new interest is the gatekeeper who extended the happiness of summer into the beginning of winter "held their breath and made the summer go on and on" only later to lead to heartbreak to make winter go on and on...

    its a realization to not be fooled by emotions and lust... and to maybe next time use their brain and date someone more right for that person
