'Summertime' - Exuberance and Simplicity

'Summertime' was written as a remembrance not of a season, but of the carelessness and exuberance of youth.  As the years pass, we grow, we learn and our wisdom expands, but all too often this leads us to forget the simpler days when we had fewer worries and could just throw ourselves into life without the thought of consequences.  The giddy, energetic and almost drunken haze of this song reminds us of those times...tempting us to revisit them.

Official Lyric Video:

Lyrics:

Daydreams fantasies, 
kisses and insanity. 
Strawberry summer dress, 
steal my heart and take my breath.

Let's fall in the summertime,  
star crossed, dancing 'til the sunrise, 
And it's sweeter on the first try,  
let go, believe and we can both fly.

Up, down, Chinatown,  
it's gonna be good when the lights go out.  
Look what you do to me,  
making promises I can never keep.

So get the music up we're too young to care, 
and let's sing, sing, sing like there's no one upstairs and… 
  
…fall in the summertime,  
star crossed, dancing 'til the sunrise. 
And it's sweeter on the first try,  
let go, believe and we can both fly.

Let's fall in the summertime,  
star crossed, dancing 'til the sunrise, 
And our innocence is sublime,  
let go, believe and we can both fly.
