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

35 summers later this song still gives me the chills.

Fuji

One of the greatest singers of all time. Never disappoints

Xavier Yates

Really? Of all time? Get a grip, and a bunch of perspective while you're at it. He's only an average singer, although he does have a distinctive voice, but in terms of technique and range he isn't really much above average, and, of course, light years away from classical/lyric singers. Don Henley's talents lie more on his songwriting, although he does manage to express his emotions quite clearly in his interpretations of his songs..

Joseph Kelley

Don and Howard have something in common:
They're both 'anointed' as they say in the Christian world.

And justin beiber!! Lols

Stern’s audio engineer deserves accolades (again) as well as Henley & the band...just phenomenally mixed. Incredible job.

This may be the best version of this song that I've ever heard.

FAST EDDIE

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

Dan Richardson
