Now there's nothing left to do
but to lay my head down for sleeping
I'm weak with exhaustion and the lover's blues
and I still can't forget those weeks I had with you
But I guess it was only a summer love
Nothing too serious and nothing to last
I feel like a fool to be longing for that lyin' summer love
Once we both loved just a bit too hard
for deep down we both knew it was dyin'
And we both talked just a little about forever
but we both knew we were doing some lyin'.
Now the snow falls, freezing my hurt for you
but some nights I feel it's still there.
I've come back now to the life I've known before you
but I doesn't have the same old meaning.
