Tears for the Summer

Words and music by Jeremy Woolhouse

As sung by Jacqueline Gawler with Silverbeat

Also featured on the instrumental album "The Scenery of Life Unfolding"

 

 

He  flickers in my mind, he who was free, 

running in sand, dancing in the sea.

He smiles for free, heart op-en wide,

he does-n't see - sand castles fall 

to the rising tide.

 

Oh why must sum-mer end, clutch-ing at straws, 

sand slip-ping through my fin-gers as the sea-son dies,

TEARS FOR THE SUM-MER, fall from my eyes.

Another year's gone by 

 

He  flickers in my mind, he who was free, 

running in sand, dancing in the sea.

He smiles for free, heart op-en wide,

he does-n't see - sand castles fall 

to the rising tide 

 

Oh why must summer end, memories are fading,

joyful moments fleet-ing and at-times I cry,

TEARS FOR THE SUM-MER, that ne-ver re-turns. 

Sum-mer's poignant smile, passes me by,

In the blinking of an eye.
