THE SOUL OF SUMMER

Another Summer, and I think of the days,
when we lived on the beach, making castles of sand.
Under umbrellas, or floating on waves,
we merged with the sea and the land.

Another Summer. I toured memories.
I heard the old songs that we loved,
petals of sound on a wandering breeze,
the sweet sounds of young Summer love.

(Chorus)
Faces and voices - the aura of youth,
drowns out the sound of Time's drummer.
It's not nostalgia, I tell you the truth -
it's only the Soul of Summer.

We don't have to look too far down the years,
to catch the scent of the season.
Flowers, and lotions, and salt-air seem near,
and we don't have to search for the reason.

Another Summer - we live by its laws,
to savor the sun and the sea,
to gaze at the moon and stars - just because,
it's Summer, and love is the key.

(Chorus)
Faces and voices - the aura of youth,
drowns out the sound of Time's drummer.
It's a Wayfarer's treasure, and Time bears the proof.
It lives in the Soul of Summer.
