The Boys of Summer

Don Henley






Verse 1
Nobody on the road, nobody on the beach

I feel it in the air, the summer's out of reach

Empty lake, empty streets, the sun goes down alone

I'm driving by your house, though I know you're not home

But I can see you

Your brown skin shining in the sun

You got your hair combed back and your

Sunglasses on baby

I can tell you my love for you will still be strong

After the boys of summer have gone

Verse 2
I never will forget those nights, I wonder if it was a dream
Remember how you made me crazy? Remember how I made you scream?
Now I don't understand what happened to our love
But babe I'm gonna get you back,
I’m gonna show you what I'm made of

Repeat Chorus

Ahhhh (x2)

Verse 3
Out on the road today, I saw a Deadhead sticker on a Cadillac

A little voice inside my head said "don't look back, you can never look back"
I thought I knew what love was, what did I know?

Those days are gone forever, I should just let ‘em go but...

Repeat Chorus
