lyrics

Have you seen our summertime?
You should see our summertime

Waiting for the sky to glow
Sunlight comes, the darkness goes
Here comes the love, it's summertime

The nights might burn green
The snow falls freely
The sun shows meekly
It soothes us briefly
We are still dreaming
The winds keep speaking
We’re sometimes drinking
And singing while hoping that soon
We’ll see our summertime

The sun will blink
Then goes to sleep
Some will drink, some will weep
But all hearts leap
In summertime

Waiting for the sky to glow
The sunlight comes, the darkness goes
Here comes the love, it's summertime

What is wrong?
I've been so sad
Like someone's left me
It’s just that
There is no sun
Bring summertime
How good it feels to be alive
This midnight sun
The hours bend
Candles burning
At both ends
Greys fade to green
It's summertime
It's summertime
