Long Teenage Goodbye (Commentary)

Was the start of the summer
And the days were getting hotter yeah
18 was just around the corner
And mama made plans for a party by the poolside

I blew out the candles
Smiling and laughing
And sister sneaking wine
While the camera was flashing
You grabbed my hand right on time
You looked so cute with your tattoo and your blue jeans
And you said to me

Lets go flying take me anywhere the wind blows
No use crying, were not thinking about tomorrow
We drug out those summer nights
For a long teenage goodbye

Chasing fireworks flashing down the Carolina shore yeah
Arms around me and you called me yours
That salty kiss made me forget about my sunburn

Snuck in barefoot to a hole in the wall
Got to do some karaoke till they yelled last call
Sang with The Byrds, every season has a turn, turn, turn, so

Repeat Chorus

A chill in the air is just around the bend
You said were never gonna get this time back again, back again, so

Repeat Chorus

For a long teenage goodbye
