The Boys Of Summer
by The Ataris

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, when I 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 Flag
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.

You know you're old when a 2003 cover of a 1984 song makes you feel nostalgic. Sigh.

Jonathon Brown

No lie!!! Damn. The nostalgia hits hard. .

BuzzL0ve

Six years old in 1984, 27 in 2003 and 43 today, older.. but still rocks.

"nobody on the road
nobody on the beach

feels like 2020

@Anthony Smith yeah, it's great to drive around empty streets without jerks to worry to, but you're kinda extreme here...

Anthony Smith

Jorge André All the annoying Jerks from out of town stopped coming to my local beach and I think it's great! Hopefully things stay like this because now I can have campfires here like I use to and just be left alone. Plus empty streets=no traffic. Man it would be great if everyone died except me lol.
