Back to Long Hot Summer lyrics

Long Hot Summer

I can't sleep, ain't no sleep a-coming
I'm just lying here thinking 'bout you
I'm in deep, falling deep into the picture
In my mind of everything we're gonna do

Over at the lake and down by the river
You can feel it start to rise
Wanna jump in my car, go wherever you are
'Cause I need you by my side

It's gonna be a long, hot summer, we should be together
With your feet up on the dashboard now
Singing along with the radio, it's such a beautiful sound

And when you say my name in the middle of the day
I swear I see the stars come out
When you hold my hand in the back of my mind
I'm just waiting on the sun to go down, the sun to go down

I wanna see your brown skin shimmer
In the sun for the first time
I try to be the one who knows just what to do to you
To get me that smile

One chance of meeting, you walking by me
On the street and I said, "Hi"
And that was the beginning of my heart spinning
Like these wheels in my head tonight

It's gonna be a long hot summer, we should be together
With your feet up on the dashboard now
Singing along with the radio, it's such a beautiful sound

And when you say my name in the middle of the day
I swear I see the stars come out
When you hold my hand in the back of my mind
Just waiting on the sun to go down, the sun to go down

The only place that I wanna be is where you are
'Cause any more than a heartbeat away is just too far
Whoa, whoa, whoa

It's gonna be a long hot summer, we should be together
All I really want is more than this moment right now

'Cause when you say my name in the middle of the day
I swear I see the stars come out
And when you hold my hand and I look into your eyes
I swear it looks like you're waiting on the sun to go down
The sun to go down, ooh

Oh, I swear it looks like you're waiting on the sun to go down
Oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh, whoa
Waiting on the sun to go down, ooh

Hey, yeah, ooh, I'm loving thinking 'bout you, ooh
I can't sleep, I'm just lying here thinking 'bout you
