Summer

On a murderously hot day I decided to write an ironic song capturing the idea that, love can affect the weather

Biting back the red hot taste,
My cheeks are flushed- porcelain disgrace
Summer’s tainted,
Winter’s wasted all my savings
I ride the train right past the beach
and tell myself I’ll go next week

Pennies are for rainy days
I’ve used them all I need some change

I wish it was summer summer summer summer
Summertime
I wish it was warmer warmer warmer warmer
In this heart of mine
I wish there was colour colour colour colour
All around
I wish it was summer
Summertime

And the boy next door doesn’t object
When I try to tan on the pavement
Dreams of melanin and being thin are slowly fading
To keep in line with all I’ve lost
I’ll pretend like I called the shots

Pennies are for rainy days
I’ve used them all I need some change

I wish it was summer summer summer summer
Summertime
I wish it was warmer warmer warmer warmer
In this heart of mine
I wish there was colour colour colour colour
All around
I wish it was summer
Summertime

Cause all this black and white has turned me blue
And there’s no summertime without you
Yeah all this black and white has turned me blue
But there’s no summer without you

I wish it was summer
Summertime
