Indian Summer
Gavin DeGraw Lyrics


Summer is lost now
The frost is closing in
To the cold gospel dollar
The poor man walks in sin
I can't get no entrance
The doors all in rows
I pray into the distance
Let me outta these heavy clothes

I beg
Indian summer I need some return
So hard to get warm now
And so easy to get burned
Down on the pavement the laws are learned
It's so hard to get warm where
It's so easy to get burned

When a sister called up
And said that love had broken down
I said there too much ice around here
To find no solid ground
Well I just squeezed a season
From this paper bag
I pray to the burning tires
Wrap my feet in rags

Begging
Indian summer I need some return
It's so hard to get warm now
And so easy to get burned
Down on the pavement the laws are learned
It's so hard to get warm where
It's so easy to get burned

Now the sky is empty
The street is sweating tears
Communion at the station
For a million grinding gears
Well I'm riding out this century
The harvest engines sing
From the church of mercenaries
To a naked virgin spring

I'm singing
Indian summer I need some return
It's so hard to get warm now
And so easy to get burned
Down on the pavement the laws are learned
It's so hard to get warm where
It's so easy to get burned

Hard to get warm where
It's so easy to get burned

His best album, by a mile.

Big Val Vader

@Something Clever ah cheers, I'll give it a look 🙂. He does a nice version of Jealous Guy as well.

@Big Val Vader DeGraw performing "Hallelujah" on some late night show is one of my favorite things ever. (If u haven't seen that it is on YT ) its amazing

That's actually how I found out about him just randomly on some late night show

Big Val Vader

@Something Clever absolutely. Seen so many good bands who can't match their studio work (Coldplay, even R.E.M.), Gavin de Graw is fantastic. Real chemistry with the audience, and the music is so tight, you can tell he takes it really seriously. If you ever get the chance, see him, you won't regret.

@Big Val Vader
I'd love to see him live

Bc Its becoming increasingly rare to find ppl who are as good live as the albums

Big Val Vader

@Something Clever yeah Chariot stripped is great too. It was through my wife that I got to hear him. Seen him live quite a few times, what a pro. Always brings his A game.
