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
We 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 tenderness and soul laid bare
In love’s drownisess I was unaware
That in the sound of distant thunder
And fading flowers of summer
All my dreams were ending even as I slumbered

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

Now see woodsmoke rise like incense burning
In the ceremony of the season’s turning
An offering in ashes to the yearning
And whom I was sure was the only one
For what I believed had just begun
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
