"Crazy English Summer" as written by Rollo Armstrong, Ayalah Deborah Bentovim and Zoe Johnston....
Fields of fire that passed the train
The sky is victorious but here comes the rain
Friday is taking me home again,
And I've nothing but you on my mind.

Grass is greener without the pain,
I think that I'm changing but I'm just the same
My sun is a ascending again
And I've nothing but you on my mind

Sometimes I feel like I'm glad to be free,
Sometimes I still want your arms around me
Sometimes I'm glad to have left you behind,
The Crazy English Summer has put you back on my mind.
Life's a riot a lover a friend,
Pity the day that it has to end
Friday come speed me home again,
I've nothing but you on my Mind.

Sometimes I feel like i'm fine on my own,
Fifty Thousand miles from home.
Sometimes I'm weak and the past is my guide,
Summer returns and puts you back on my mind

    General CommentI'm not exactly sure what the hell this song is about. It sounds like she's talking about a fling she had with someone in the summer...but then it starts talking about life and how it ends..and that she's 50 000 miles away from home? fucks me..someone smart write in here so i know what its about. I love it though...i love faithless and i can't believe no one wants to write about their farkin great songs.

    General Commenti don't think it's a recent breakup cos she talks about how the summer puts him back on her mind. it's like summer has come round again and she remembers the relationship and it once was/used to be before it went bad. but i do think she's left home. gone away. she's going home cause she misses it. i think it's both. a break up and missing home.

    General CommentIt's aload of bullshit that this song hasn't been commented on since 2005 yet Fall Out Boy sits up the top of the most popular lyrics. KIDS THESE DAYS.
    This ain't a scene ..
    SERIOUSLY who gives a fuck ?
    Faithless and Chicane keep making music that makes people feel.

    General CommentI think this songs is about a women who left all his life behind, like if she left her hometown for being away of a person who she used to love, but at the same time she miss, and she cannot get out of his mind.

    General Commentthis song is about a recent breakup and fresh wounds. the narrator obviously enjoys the freedom, but misses the security. this song was the best kept secret on the album, until it was released as a single. no harm done, i think, but truly one of Faithless's finer works.

    the vocalist/writer of this choon is Zoe Johnston, formerly of the electronic group Dusted.

    General CommentPeople ascribe meanings to things. She is reminded of her past relationship, and she gets a flood of memories and emotion. Every summer, perhaps when she sees fields, or rain or grass, its a reminder, somewhat painful, but bearable.

    General Commenti agree that this song was a fantastic secret that has been buzzed over by countless faithless fans worldwide. But what a voice!! I can see Zoe becoming a huge hit in a couple of years time ! Mark my words .... Anyway , i'd buy her solo material just like ive got Dido's !!!
