the boys of summer lyrics – ataris

n*body on the road
n*body on the beach
i feel it in the air
the summer’s out of reach
empty lake, empty streets
the sun goes down alone
i’m drivin’ by your house
though i know you’re not at home

but i can see you-
your brown skin shinin’ in the sun
you got your hair combed back and your sungl*sses on, baby
and i can tell you my love for you will still be strong
after the boys of summer have gone

i never will forget those nights
i wonder if it was a dream
remember how you made me crazy?
remember how i made you scream
now i don’t understand what happened to our love
but babe, when i get you back
i’m gonna show you what i’m made of

i can see you-
your brown skin shinin’ in the sun
i see you walkin’ real slow and you’re smilin’ at everyone
i can tell you my love for you will still be strong
after the boys of summer have gone

out on the road today, i saw a black flag sticker on a cadillac
a little voice inside my head said, “don’t look back. you can never look back.”
i thought i knew what love was
what did i know?
those days are gone forever
i should just let them go but-

i can see you-
your brown skin shinin’ in the sun
you got that top pulled down and that radio on, baby
and i can tell you my love for you will still be strong
after the boys of summer have gone

i can see you-
your brown skin shinin’ in the sun
you got that hair slicked back and those wayfarers on, baby
i can tell you my love for you will still be strong
after the boys of summer have gone
