See the lizard and the firefly and the smoke blow through the trees on a warm cicada night the sea was empty bottle green and you were staring at the fire as it shouldered to ash had a vision of a love flashing from the past we were together I said we could be forever woah oh oh as the days go by I’m getting older see the albatross over your shoulder and I’m wiser than I was .. but the nights are just a little bit colder (a little bit, just a little bit) colder (a little bit, just a little bit) as I long for yesterday, the feelings wash away woah oh oh heading north up to SummerLand flying down Jalama ’til our wheels hit the sand and we’re together you said we could be forever woah oh oh as the days go by I’m getting older see the albatross over you shoulder and I’m wiser than I was .. but the night are just a little bit colder (a little bit, just a little bit) colder (a little bit, just a little bit) as I long for yesterday, the feelings wash away woah oh oh lonely without you (fades)

roll out of bed huaraches and a poncho looking for lefts on the bumper of a Bronco shooting bb guns at the coke cans wore a shoelace as a headband tied the mattress down to the top of the van singing Californ-i-a in the dark there is a light that shines above me and it doesn’t die, from the rafters! lost the ceiling lights flickering bulbs are no longer bright shooting Pali off onto Sunset in a 911 or a white corvette playing OBT on the tape cassette singing Californ-i-a in the dark there is a light that shines above me and it doesn’t die, from the rafters! from the rafters above 2x from the rafters above the light will come through old dusty cobwebs and shine, on you, on you, on you

We went down down down to see the vacant lot on Bleaker St. an eerie calm from beyond the break tambourine rattle of the rattlesnake the day was old the night was young we were underneath the hot hot sun into the unknown shimmy shimmy coco puff ooh lala drinking the tequila til the ‘quila was gone the clock strikes midnight 1&2 I was walking choppy like a long-necked goose the day was old the night was young we were underneath the hot hot sun into the unknown We went down down down to see on a white Peugeot with a black rubber seat legs danglin’ off the back board tied down with a bunjee strap the day was old the night was young we were underneath the hot hot sun into the unknown shimmy shimmy coco puff ooh lala drinking the tequila til the ‘quila was gone the clock strikes midnight 1&2 I was walking choppy like a long-necked goose the day was old the night was young we were underneath the hot hot sun into the unknown birdrock blastoff turtle roll midnight surfing drop the bowl holy moly guacamole cannonball into a roly-poly at Pancho’s Left it was me & Jeff on our way to SummerLand on an old school cruiser popsicle until our wheels hit the sand GO! Champion of the beach! (talking) to separate the men from boys they drew a line in the sand and in the end the dust will settle and only one will stand so gather round sound the horn for everyone to see who they call the champ, Champion of the Beach

Summer Moon 03:23
A summer moon in December waiting on the clouds to pass a purple haze hung above us darkens ’til the night is black there was a summer moon in the winter until the sunshine eases through you left me waiting on a postcard signed always & forever P.S. I miss you until the sun goes down beyond the sea a shadow in the dark covers you & me underneath the stars there was moonlight on the beach ooh ooh summer moon summer moon ooh ooh summer moon looking up into a blue sky where the cliff edge comes to the shore if summer love lasts a lifetime then this isn’t goodbye ‘cuz I’m forever yours until the sun goes down beyond the sea a shadow in the dark covers you & me underneath the stars there was moonlight on the beach ooh ooh summer moon summer moon ooh ooh summer moon
