SUMMER
(Nori & Barbie Kelley)

Welcome back my friend
Itís good to see you again
Iíve been waiting for you all year long
The warmth on my face
How Iíve missed your embrace
I know Iím right where I belong
Watch the heat rising up in the distance
Willows sway in the breeze giving no resistance

Ooh, I love the summertime
With its longer days and the change of pace
Ooh, I love the summertime
With the bright sunshine and Iím feelin' fine
Ooh, I love the summertime

Dawn awakening
On the front porch swing
Sipping tea and I canít complain
Picnic on the grass
Clouds approaching fast
As we welcome the sweet summer rain
Watch the thunderheads on the horizon
Raindrops falling like a million diamonds

Ooh, I love the summertime
With its longer days and the change of pace
Ooh, I love the summertime
With the bright sunshine and Iím feelin' fine
Ooh, I love the summertime

As we walk by the river, your hand in mine
We catch a glimpse of eternity, love divine

Where the sea meets the land
Warm my feet in the sand
As the sun moves toward high noon
Ocean fingers reach
Toward evening on the beach
As we dance in the light of the moon
Watch the stars appear in the twilight
Moonís reflection makes me wanna hold you tight

Ooh, I love the summertime
With its longer days and the change of pace
Ooh, I love the summertime
With the bright sunshine and Iím feelin' fine
Ooh, I love the summertime

(Barbie) Yes, I DO love the summertime! When Nori and I wrote this song, we wanted to capture some of our favorite summer experiences. Even watching a summer storm from our front porch (in Alabama... from the garage here in Myrtle Beach). Nori wanted Summer to have a Byrds / Beach Boys feel, and I believe he succeeded in that!

(Nori) ...the end section is obviously heavily influenced by Mark Knopfler / Dire Straits - a Strat, fingers & heavy compression!
