Song Meaning
Verse 1
Summertime withers as the sun descends
He wants to kiss you. Will you condescend?
Before you wake and find a chill within your bones
Under a fine canopy of lover`s dust and humorous bones
Banish all dismay
Extinguish every sorrow
Eternity stinks, my darling. That`s no joke
Don`t waste your precious time pretending you`re
heartbroken
There will be tears and candles
Pretty words to say
Spare me lily-white lillies
With the awful perfume of decay
Banish all dismay
Extinguish every sorrow
If I`m lost or I`m forgiven
The birds will still be singing
Verse 2
It`s so hard to tear myself away
Even when you know it`s over
It`s too much to say.
Banish all dismay
Extinguish every sorrow
If I`m lost or I`m forgiven
The birds will still be singing
