about

THE LAST SUMMER?
A lot of this record is me dealing with the different phases of my life. I'm not a teenager running amok anymore (well, still run amok here and there). This song questions whether this is the last summer together as young punks going mad as we always did when we were kids or are we moving on now to a new, more mature phase. It's definitely not the same as a few summers ago, but I do know there will always be a kid in us till the day we die unless we choose to "grow up" and be stiffs. We are as young or as old as we let ourselves be.

This track was produced by Ryan Enright who I had the pleasure of working with on the entire record at his home studio in Bondi. We had plenty of laughs and became good mates in the process - and that's how it should be!

lyrics

VERSE
I NEVER KNEW A FIGHT LIKE THIS
BLIND TO THE FACT IGNORANCE IS BLISS
CUPID’S GOT A CHOKE ON ME
(I WON'T LIE, I WON'T LIE)
AND I TRY TO PLAY IT DOWN TO MY FRIENDS
BUT EVERY TIME YOU'RE ROUND, I'M JUST CLOWNING AGAIN
CUPID'S BOUT PUT ME TO SLEEP
(I WON'T LIE, I WON'T LIE)
IF I TAP AND I GIVE IN
THEN I'LL NEVER GET TO SLEEP
AND DREAM OF YOU (DREAM OF YOU)
BUT IF I DO SUBMIT
THEN MY HEART’S UPON MY SLEEVE
EXPOSING TRUTH
BUT I GUESS THAT'S A CHANCE THAT I'LL TAKE
IF IT LEADS ME TO YOU

CHORUS
JUST LIKE RAINDROPS
KEEPS POURING DOWN IN JUNE
FROM THE SKY, FROM THE SKY
JUST LIKE RAINDROPS
I KEEP ON FALLING FOR YOU
I WON'T LIE, I WON'T LIE

JUST LIKE RAINDROPS
KEEPS POURING DOWN IN JUNE
FROM THE SKY, FROM THE SKY
JUST LIKE RAINDROPS
I KEEP ON FALLING FOR YOU
I WON'T LIE, I WON'T LIE

VERSE
GUESS I HAD TO TAP & GIVE IN
DROPPED MY DEFENCE, COULDN'T GET THE WIN
CUPID GOT THE BEST OF ME
(I WON'T LIE, I WON'T LIE)
AND I TRY TO KEEP CALM IN DEFEAT
BUT EVERY TIME YOU'RE ROUND, SEE MY HEARTS SKIPS A BEAT
NOW I KNOW I'M IN TOO DEEP
(I WON'T LIE, I WON'T LIE)
IF I NEVER SET IT FREE
THEN I WOULDN'T GET TO BE
HERE NEXT TO YOU (NEXT TO YOU)
BUT NOW I'M BY YOUR SIDE
THEN I GUESS I CAN'T DENY
I FELL FOR YOU
AND I'M GLAD IT'S A CHANCE THAT I TOOK
COS IT LEAD ME TO YOU

CHORUS

BRIDGE
IF I DIE BEFORE I WAKE
I PRAY THE LORD TO TAKE
MY SOUL TO SKIES ABOVE
THEN SHOWER DOWN WITH LOVE
WHILE I’M HERE BY YOUR SIDE
GOT NOTHING BUT LOVE FOR YOU INSIDE
AND I’LL NEVER EVER LET IT DIE

CHORUS
