Lyrics

Summer Lovers (Spring to Fall)

Springtime wore her summer dress
And by her grace and a warm caress
Ushered in our days of happiness
And beneath green leafy trees
We uncovered new love’s mysteries
And the sweet, sweet air that found us
Poured its perfume all around us

Your name to me was like a prayer
But with tender heart and soul laid bare
In love’s drowsiness I lay without care
That in the sound of distant thunder
And fading flowers of summer
The dream was ending even as I slumbered

Summer lovers - spring to fall
Summer lovers one and all
Spring to fall

Woodsmoke hangs like incense burning
In the ceremony of the season’s turning
An offering in ashes to the yearning
For what I believed had just begun
And who I was sure was the only one
And for the faith I lost in the heart I thought I’d won

Summer lovers - spring to fall
Summer lovers one and all
Only spring to fall
