Summer Turns To High Lyrics

by REM

Mercury is rising still, turn the fan on high
I won't step on my own shadow, no one wants to cry

Someone put a pox on me, I spit in their eyes
Summer turns to high

Lift my bed sheet, cape and sandals, circle Citronella candles
Summer's here but night is raising hopes and dragonflies

If those hopes are overshadowed
Cotton candy, caramel wafer

Summer turns to high
Summer turns to high
Summer turns to high, summer high

After wine and nectarines, the fireflies and time
Move like syrup through the evening with the sweet resign

I won't fight, for what can't happen
I'm preoccupied

Summer turns to high
Summer turns to high
Summer turns to high, summer high
