Summertime Sadness Lyrics

Kiss me hard before you go
Summertime sadness
I just wanted you to know
That baby, you're the best

I got my red dress on tonight
Dancing in the dark in the pale moonlight
Done my hair up real big, beauty queen style
High heels off, I'm feeling alive

Oh, my God, I feel it in the air
Telephone wires above are sizzlin' like a snare
Honey, I'm on fire, I feel it everywhere
Nothing scares me anymore (one, two, three, four)

Kiss me hard before you go
Summertime sadness
I just wanted you to know
That baby, you're the best

I got that summertime, summertime sadness
Su-su-summertime, summertime sadness
Got that summertime, summertime sadness
Oh, oh-oh-oh-oh

I'm feelin' electric tonight
Cruising down the coast goin' 'bout 99
Got my bad baby by my heavenly side
I know if I go, I'll die happy tonight

Oh, my God, I feel it in the air
Telephone wires above are sizzlin' like a snare
Honey, I'm on fire, I feel it everywhere
Nothing scares me anymore (one, two, three, four)

Kiss me hard before you go
Summertime sadness
I just wanted you to know
That baby, you're the best

I got that summertime, summertime sadness
Su-su-summertime, summertime sadness
Got that summertime, summertime sadness
Oh, oh-oh-oh-oh

Think I'll miss you forever
Like the stars miss the sun in the morning sky
Later's better than never
Even if you're gone, I'm gonna drive, (drive) drive

I got that summertime, summertime sadness
Su-su-summertime, summertime sadness
Got that summertime, summertime sadness
Oh, oh-oh-oh-oh

Kiss me hard before you go
Summertime sadness
I just wanted you to know
That baby, you're the best

I got that summertime, summertime sadness
Su-su-summertime, summertime sadness
Got that summertime, summertime sadness
Oh, oh-oh-oh-oh

What is the Meaning of Summertime Sadness?

I think this song is especially poignant because it reminds me of those days on summer when there is a lot of free time and the sun, pool and we all ponder about those times when we were younger and didn't have a lot to do the next day. We could hang out with friends or family, have fun, drinks, watch the fireworks in new year and everything simply.... they were happy times. And so at times someone might remember those days and feel the "summertime sadness."
