Summer Goodbyes

Lyrics by Peter James

Sneaking off 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 his arm around her
And whispers in her ear
Girl you know I love you
Want to make it crystal clear
This holiday's been so much better
Having you right here
The summer’s almost gone
Let’s just have fun

Summer sun summer kisses
Moonlight dream moonlight wishes
It’s almost gone
Then she looks in his eyes and she realizes
She might never see him again
And she tries not to cry 
Oh those summer goodbyes
Summer summer summer goodbyes 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 travelled 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 looks in his eyes and she realizes
She might never see him again
And tries not to cry 
Oh those summer goodbyes


Summer summer summer goodbyes goodbyes
Summer summer summer goodbyes Summer goodbyes yeah
Summer summer summer goodbyes

Summer sun summer kisses
Moonlight dream moonlight wishes
It’s almost gone
Then she looks in his eyes and she realizes
She might never see him again
And tries not to cry 
Oh those summer goodbyes


Summer summer summer goodbyes goodbyes
Summer summer summer goodbyes summer goodbyes yeah
Summer summer summer goodbyes goodbyes
Summer summer summer goodbyes
Oh Yeah Oooo  Ooooo

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