Teenagers jumping off a railroad bridge
They've known each other since they were kids
It's the end of the summer, good friends ready to fly

They do the cannonball into the creek
They'll do the cannonball one more week
At the end of the summer, good friends saying goodbye

They were riding double on bicycles
Buying bubble gum and vying for the sun
And the summer was so long 'til the summer was so gone

Your sister went to college in the fall
She took her posters off the bedroom wall
And your family drove all night from the university

And in the morning looking down the hall
She left her trophies and a couple of dolls
And your family would be alright 'cause you had to be

You were riding double on bicycles
Buying bubble gum and vying for the sun
And the summer was so long 'til the summer was so gone

On we go down crooked roads alone to who knows where
Burning in this moment like a sparkler in mid-air

When you are jumping off a railroad bridge
No one can tell you what living is
At the end of the summer, are you ready to fly?

We were riding double on bicycles
Buying bubble gum and vying for the sun
And the summer was so long 'til the summer was so gone

Teenagers jumping off a railroad bridge
