about

every summer better than the last

lyrics

i wanna get a visa
just for the chance to meetcha
i need to change my groove
this year i'm loving you

when we were kids we looked at bars with amazement
but now we're here and all we talk about are basements

(it was only four years ago // how come it feels like we're moving slow)

in the basements we lived
you'll find some empty 40's
back from
when we were kids
but now we're stuck in slo-mo
we're all trying to quit
the cycles that we came from
but our bodies can't fit
the changes that we give them

after years of exactly the same thing
we always miss it at the end of every spring
all the years that we spent together
summer last forever
but
as our roots start to grow and move around
we find our homes are looser in the ground
never loose enough to lose each other
summers spent together
make them last forever

and now as cycles vary
we still find sanctuary
in the wonders we loved as a child
they feel small but they still run wild

and all our friends stopped calling back
but maybe we were the ones who first lost track

(if we could we would turn back time // but there are things that just can't rewind)

if you pick up the phone
the story never ends
but we should all be alone
every now and again
feels like it's all set in stone
the number of our friends
and the place we call home
but it really all depends

after years of exactly the same thing
we always miss it at the end of every spring
all the years that we spent together
summer last forever
but
as our roots start to grow and move around
we find our homes are looser in the ground
never loose enough to lose each other
summers spent together
make them last forever

(dance break!)

and though our paths may never cross again
just know that we're still the best of friends
there's nothing good that never changes

summer last forever

and though our lives start moving on their own
just know that there's nothing set in stone
stay together don't stay alone

summers spent together

stay together don't stay alone
pick up yourself to pick up the phone

it was only four years ago
how come it feels like we're moving so slow

if we could we would turn back time
but there are things that just can't rewind

all night, you want the young american
young american young american you want the young american
