Song: So Long Sweet Summer

The inevitable is happening. We've been dreading this day for weeks and months now. The air is chilling out, the birds are forming Vs in the sky and the roads are significantly clearer than they were a week ago - even for a Tuesday. And despite everything we've been saying, singing, drinking in an effort to hold on to it - there's pretty much nothing we can do about it... summer has slipped away right in front of our very eyes. Even if we plan on pretending that's not the case. So, "so long sweet summer, I stumbled upon you and gratefully basked in your rays..."

LYRICS:

so long sweet summer (so long sweet summer) i stumbled upon you and gratefully basked in your rays so long sweet slumber (so long sweet slumber) i fell into you, now you're gracefully falling away

hey thanks, thanks for that summer it's cold where you're going i hope that your hearts always warm (hope that your hearts always warm)

i gave you the best, i gave you the best that i had (gave the best i had) you passed down the letters and passed on the best that i had (passed the best i had) so long sweet summer (so long sweet summer) i stumbled upon you and gratefully basked in your rays so long sweet slumber (so long sweet slumber) i fell into you, now you're gracefully falling away
