The Boys Of Summer
The Ataris 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

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

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

I can see you
Your brown skin shining in the sun
You got that top pulled down
And that radio on, baby

Now 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

Havent listened yet, hot clickbait girl makes me think its gonna be bad, [pop trash}

Ah its ok, pop rock
Nikelback

No mcr almost level kinda
like all the top tier hard rock radio pop like 5 fingering Breaking ben, Almost hollywood Undead lead Vocal level I'd say.

Second refrain is boring, chorus "lit" tho

Oh baby here comes the lead guitar break

oh ah, that was short

Ok getting better building tension,
Chorus good, transition better
6/10 I say
but thats just typing while listening
the video might have that girl and add a point for each tit

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 drivin' by your house
Though I know you're not home
I can see you
Your brown skin shinin' in the sun
You got your hair combed
back and those 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 babe, I'm gonna get you back
I'm gonna show you what
I'm made of I can see you
Your brown skin shinin' in the sun
I see you walkin' real
slow and you're smilin' 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 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
I can see you
Your brown skin shinin' 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 shinin' in the sun
You got that hair slicked back
and those Wayfarers on, baby
I can tell you my love
for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone

This song got me through Afghanistan, 12-13. I'd put this on repeat, flip a tractor tire 20 times one way, do 20 pushups, 20 situps on the tire, push it back. Do it for an hour. crazy ex back home faking a pregnancy, 7000 miles away, my previous best friend was robbing me blind as I rented him my house. My world, the world I was in, was just falling apart. I just blasted this song through my headphones and flipped the tire.

Thats beautiful! I don't mean what happened to you, but the way words and and music and certain songs can create a whole other world in that moment! I have 3 songs that will always be my go to songs in times of tragedy or up and downs....this song....sterophonics "maybe tomorrow " and Gavin DeGraw "I don't wanna be".....those songs, no matter how im feeling, no matter the turbulent waters, good days, bad days......I play one or all 3 the songs and in that moments I'm happy....im smiling and dancing like a looney lol 😆

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