When it was summer
I played until the moonlight
And my vision of the future was a day or two ahead

When it was summer
I lived the way I wanted
Now I try to do that but live the way I think I should instead

I’ve gotten older but not wiser
Because I know that things were simpler then
If someone tries to tell you these are the best days of your life
Well next year they’re gonna tell you again

When it was summer
It was all a big deal
Except for things that now occupy a big space in my brain

When it was summer
All I wanted was to be grown up
But I don’t remember when that changed

My my my my my intentions
Are inventions and dimensions
Of a never ending thread
My my my my my intentions
Are just misdirections
Disguised inside my head

When it was summer
I looked in the mirror
But only after a shower to draw pictures in the glass

Everything was better in the good old days
But we can’t help it, we grow up too fast
There’s nothing wrong with thinking back on good times
But you’re in trouble when you’re living in the past
