Summer Day

Since I have writer’s block, I thought I’d share the lyrics to a song that I wrote a couple years ago. This is called “Summer Day.”

Beautiful day as the sun fades into shades of pink
People exchange smiles as they make their way up the hill
Waiting to see the stars explode into red white and blue
Smell the smoke and the party food and the kids are playing in the street

We’ll say what a day as we’re walking back through Portland
Back in our home town and we’ve been doing this for years
Perfect summer day and we’re driving home and midnight
Perfect summer night and we’ve got the music playing

Beautiful day as the light fades into black and blue
Colored lights start to shine like little fire flies
Little laughs inspired by explosions in the sky
People flood the street as they wait for twilight to come

We’ll say what a day as we’re walking back through Portland
Back in our home town and we’ve been doing this for years
Perfect summer day and we’re driving home at midnight
Perfect summer night and we’ve got the music playing

Beautiful night as the star light takes the place of the sun
Hear the people laugh as they walk home in the dark
All the little kids will say that was the best show yet
Mom and dad will roll their eyes and smile and the old ladies will agree

We’ll say what a day as we’re walking back through Portland
Back in our hometown and we’ve been doing this for years
Perfect summer day and we’re driving home at midnight
Perfect summer night and we got the music playing
