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 there beneath green leafy trees
Uncovered new love’s mysteries
And the sweet, sweet air that found us
Poured its perfume all around us

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

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

Now 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 whom I was sure was the only one
And for the faith I lost in the heart I thought I’d won

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