Boys of Summer

Don Henley


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, Don’t 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

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
I don’t understand what happened to our love,
But, baby, I’m gonna get you back, I’m gonna show you what I’m made of

   I can see you, Your brown skin shining in the sun
   I see you walking real slow and you’re, smiling at everyone
   And I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
   After the boys of summer have gone

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

   I can see you, Your brown skin shining in the sun
   You got that top pulled down and that, radio on, baby
   And I can tell you my love for you will still be strong,
   After the boys of summer have gone

   I can see you, Your brown skin shining in the sun
   You got that hair slicked back and those, Wayfarers on, baby
   And I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
   After the boys of summer have gone
