What Kind of Summer

from Installation by Nathan Mathes



What kind of summer leaves a girl without a tan?
Where is your work, love? Where is your man?

The doors are opening, our friends are coming and going.
They're here for you. They're here for me too.
There's so much living left on the road, here at home.
Watch the children grow.
Come to town and set me right.

A run in the morning. Did it have to end this way?
Everything is made so big these days.

The doors are opening, there's nobody coming or going.
When we drift apart, we pass apart.
There was some living left, I was writing for you in that letter you read.
This is where the temptation hides.

Smoking cigarettes and walking slowly through a downtown park.
The Midwest is growing up.
Siren and the flashing lights,
Siren and the flashing lights.
They're taking your love away.
