Let Me Be The Summer

August 12, 2008
In clover fields beneath a midday sun
Oh, let me be the summer and you be the sun
Or if I am the sky, then you're a balloon
We could both float away, take a trip to the moon
We can wear jeweled crowns and build an empire
Or grab a guitar and sing by the fire
We'll laugh like thunder and love like rain
Catch fireflies like we're five again
I'll kiss your knees if you fall while we run
Oh, let me be the summer and you be the sun
We'll make a pact that we'll never part
The impossible dream of a child's heart
We can tell tall tales and paint the trees
Or steal a ship, sail away to the sea
We'll shine the stars with the edge of our sleeves
And stay up all night, never falling asleep
We'll both grow up and fall in love
Oh, let me be the summer and you be the sun
We'll teach our kids to imagine and dream
By telling them stories of you and me
How we wore jeweled crowns and built an empire
You grabbed a guitar and I sang by the fire
We laughed like thunder and loved like rain
Caught fireflies to feel young again
How we told tall tales and painted the trees
And stole a ship, sailed away to the sea
We shined the stars with the edge of our sleeves
And they'll stay up all night, never falling asleep.
