The Boys Of Summer
DON HENLEY - The Boys Of Summer
Nobody on the road
Nobody on the beach
I feel it in the air -
The summer's out of reach
Empty lake, empty streets
The sun goes down alone
I'm drivin' by your house
Though I know you're not home

But I can see you -
Your brown skin shinin' in the sun
You got your hair combed back
And your sunglasses on, baby
And I can tell you
My love for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone

I never will forget those nights
I wonder if it was a dream
Remember how you made me crazy?
Remember how I made you scream
Now I don't understand what happened to our love
But babe I'm gonna get you back
I'm gonna show you what I'm made of

I can see you -
Your brown skin shinin' in the sun
I see you walkin' real slow
And you're smilin' at everyone
I can tell you
My love for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone

Out on the road today
I saw a DEADHEAD sticker on a Cadillac
A little voice inside my head said
"Don't look back, you can never look back"
I thought I knew what love was -
What did I know?
Those days are gone forever;
I should just let 'em go, but

I can see you -
Your brown skin shinin' in the sun
You got the top pulled down
And the radio on, baby
And I can tell you
My love for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone

I can see you -
Your brown skin shinin' in the sun
You got that hair slicked back
And those Wayfarers on, baby
I can tell you
My love for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone
