Summer is my favorite season
I was born in the hazy heat
In the middle of a black and white city
that never goes to sleep

I hear a black crow at my window
her song, it frightens me
hard sandels, and coin medallions
a green dress, and Greek keys

The things we wanted they came too fast
and now we're stuck dwelling on the past

It would have been a boy, if he was real
and I would have named him Simon or James
I would have cried cause he was yours
He would have had a precious face

You have Rubies, Turquiose, and Sapphires,
I just have the moon, and a few pearls
You can light yourself on fire if you want to
and I'll smile at the world

So take my hand
and say something simple
you said it plenty when I didn't ask
Go on. Say that you love me
I didn't expect much,
I'm okay with that.
