Summer Goodbyes

Lyrics by Peter James

An upbeat romantic but somewhat sad piano based song about the end of summer.

Sneaking of for midnight kisses

walking hand in hand

Shadows of the moonlight

spilling on the sand

She was lost in summer romance

she was barley 17

Living free and easy

dancing in a dream

She knew right from the start

she could loose her heart

 

Laughing in the sunlight

sitting on the peer

He put’s his arm around her

and whispers in her ear

Girl you know I love you

want to make it crystal clear

This holidays been so much better

having you right here

The summer’s almost done

let’s just have fun

 

Summer sun summer kisses

moonlight dream moonlight wishes

It’s almost gone

Then she look in his eyes and realizes

she might never see him again

And she tries not to cry 

ohh those summer goodbyes

Summer summer summer goodbyes

Summer summer summer goodbyes

 

She’s heading off to Europe

backpacking with some friends

She saved up for the whole year

now it’s finally happening

Barcelona up to Paris back to Switzerland

She met a cute guy in Italy

a little romance it began

 

They traveled on together making memories

Coffee shops and tours spots

and unforgettable parties

They danced under the moonlight

Made love on the sand

And fell asleep under the stars lying next to him

The summer went on by in the blink of an eye

 

Summer sun summer kisses

moonlight dream moonlight wishes

It’s almost gone

Then she look in his eyes and realizes

she might never see him again

And she tries not to cry 

ohh those summer goodbyes

Summer summer summer goodbyes

Summer summer summer goodbyes
