Summer Skin Death Cab For Cutie Lyrics

Squeaky swings and tall grass
The longest shadows ever cast
The water's warm and children swim
And we frolicked about in our summer skin

I don't recall a single care
Just greenery and humid air
Then Labor Day came and went
And we shed what was left of our summer skin

On the night you left I came over
And we peel the freckles from our shoulders
Our brand new coats so flushed in pink
And I knew your heart I couldn't win

'Cause the seasons change was a conduit
And we left our love in our summer skin
