Summer's a good time to part with the bad times
the air is sweet with apple trees in bloom
I wish you the best I have no regrets except
Maybe for not leaving you then

It must be the new shades that aren't blue
my new love paints me orange and pink
such changes have come in just a few months
so in love I'm afraid to blink
