The Boys of Summer Lyrics
Nobody on the road
Nobody on the beach
I feel it in the air
The summer's out of reach

Empty lake, empty streets
The sun goes down alone
I'm driving by your house
Though I know you're not home

But I can see you
Your brown skin shining in the sun
You got your hair combed back
And your sunglasses on, baby

And I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone

I never will forget those nights
I wonder if it was a dream
Remember how you made me crazy
Remember how I made you scream

Now I don't understand what
Happened to our love
But, baby, I'm gonna get you back
I'm gonna show you what I'm made of

But I can see you
Your brown skin shining in the sun
I see you walking real slow and you're
Smiling at everyone

And I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone

Out on the road today I saw a Black Head
Sticker on a Cadillac
A little voice inside my head said:
"Don't look back, you can never look back"

I thought I knew what love was
What did I know?
Those days are gone forever
I should just let them go, but...

But I can see you
Your brown skin shining in the sun
You got that top pulled down
And that radio on, baby
And I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone

I can see you
Your brown skin shining in the sun
You got that hair slicked back
And those Wayfarers on, baby
And I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone
