Last Day of Summer Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

I think I just recalled a time
It was not the moon and not the wine
And though you said you were a friend of mine
I never felt that way inclined

Oh, the days were hot and the nights were long
I must have sung a million songs
But all the words just came out wrong
On the last day of summer

I tried to walk the line
Hoped everything would turn out fine
But I think I fell in love
That time on the last day

And then the rain came down
And sparkled the signs of the underground
And the darkness fell all over town
On the last day

I think I dropped my guard that time
I was flesh and blood and grit and slime
And I think I may have lost my mind
On the last day of summer

I think I fell in love back there
It was tooth and nail it was bones and hair
And you'll never know how much I cared
On the last day of summer

And though I think I fell that time
It was not the only fault of mine
But all I wanted was a sign
On the last day

I think you broke my heart that day
And nothing I could do or say
Could make the coldness go away
On the last day

The winter changes everything
And the raindrops freeze on the signs of the underground
I wonder will you think of me when you look up
And see there's a full moon over London Town

I think I was away the day
When you said you were too smart to play
And you'd only beat me anyway
It's funny how I would have stayed

And you said you were a friend of mine
But that's not what I had in mind
I think I fell in love that time
On the last day of summer

I tried to walk the line
Hoped everything would turn out fine
But I lost the reasons and the rhymes
On the last day

And then the rain came down
And sparkled the signs of the underground
And the darkness fell all over town
On the last day
