about

Wrote this in 2012. We composed the lyrics in Lincoln Field in Lexington, MA as the fireflies came out, blasting the track through the car speakers. Good times.

lyrics

These days
I sleep at home
Most nights
The moon is gone
For one year
I felt you there
We had time
You had time
You had it all from me

In the summer (in the summer)
When I loved her (when I loved her)
Before it was over (it was over)
Before it began

In the suburbs (In the backyard stealing)
When I loved her (your hands I'm feeling)
Before it was over (I'm back, I'm reeling)
Before it began

So keep the lights on
I'll be your heartthrob
When every night's long
Over and over again
I'll make your heart stop
Out on your front lawn
Playing the best song
Over and over again

With one week
I felt you there
With one day
You got your torch to bear
I know that it's not enough
So keep the lights on
I'll be your heartthrob

In the summer (in the summer)
When I loved her (when I loved her)
Before it was over (it was over)
Before it began

In the suburbs (In the backyard stealing)
When I loved her (your hands I'm feeling)
Before it was over (I'm back, I'm reeling)
Before it began

So keep the lights on
I'll be your heartthrob
When every night's long
Over and over again
I'll make your heart stop
Out on your front lawn
Playing the best song
Over and over again
