The Boys Of Summer
Don Henley 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
Don't 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
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
I don't understand what happened to our love
But, babe, I'm gonna get you back
I'm gonna show you what I'm made of

I can see you
Your brown skin shining in the sun
I see you walking real slow
And you're smiling at everyone
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 Deadhead 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 'em go, but

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

FAST EDDIE

Some days I wish I could go back in life. Not to change anything, but to feel a few things twice.

Terre Gosney

I love Don Henley, even met him at a meet and great... Seems like yesterday, esp w this song...💖🎙️t.

Göran Adamson

Fast Eddie, I am stunned.. One of most elegant lines of poetry I have heard in ages..

Ramtin Sohrabi

Love & Peace

PIlotrcm

Yeah, I’d rather not feel certain things twice as it fucked me for life

Divalicious KC

I say this all the time!! Exactly. I don't have a huge mistake I'd change, I want to rewind and do it all again exactly the same. ❤❤❤ It seems like a perfectly reasonable request. 😂 ❤

35 summers later this song still gives me the chills.

I'm 51. I've seen and dished out death on foreign shores. I have seen things that would break most men. But my God, this song broke me. The tears are flowing like a rainstorm down my face as I write this. God I wish I could go back to the 80's...I would take any of you who wanted to go with me.

Damn. This hit me like a rock. Totally didn't see it coming. That's what music can do people. Made me fuckin' weep.
