David's Last Summer

Stampa   |   Correggere

We made our way slowly down the path that led to the stream,
Swaying slightly,
Drunk on the sun, I suppose
It was a real summer's day
The air humming with heat whilst the trees beckoned us into their cool green shade
And when we reached the stream I put a bottle of cider into the water to chill,
Both of us knowing that we'd drink it long before it had the chance

This is where you want to be,
There's nothing else but you and her,
And how you spend your time

Walking to parties whilst it's still light outside
Peter was upset at first but now he's in the garden talking to somebody Polish
Why don't we set up a tent and spend the night out there?
And we can pretend that we're somewhere foreign,
But we'll still be able to use the fridge if we get hungry, or too hot

This is where you want to be,
There's nothing else but you and her,
And how you use your time

We went driving

This is where you want to be,
There's nothing else but you and her,
And how you use your time

The room smells faintly of sun tan lotion
In the evening sunlight and when you take off your clothes,
You're still wearing a small pale skin bikini
The sound of children playing in the park comes from faraway,
And time slows down to the speed of the specks of dust
Floating in the light from the window
Summer leaves fall from Summer trees
Summer grazes fade on Summer knees
Summer nights are slowly getting long
Summer's going so hurry soon it'll be gone
So we went out to the park at midnight one last time
Past the abandoned glasshouse stuffed full of dying palms
Past the bandstand down to the boating lake
And we swam in the moonlight for what seemed like hours,
Until we couldn't swim anymore
And as we came out of the water we sensed a certain movement in the air,
And we both shivered slightly and ran to collect our clothes
And as we walked home we could hear the leaves curling and turning
Brown on the trees,
And the birds deciding where to go for Winter
And the whole sound,
The whole sound of Summer packing it's bags and preparing to leave town
Oh but I want you to stay
Oh please stay for a while,
Oh I want you to stay,
Oh I want you to stay
