lyrics

Alive were the nights the cicadas did nott sleep
The wind rustled the trees, sounds of thunder, raining leaves
We were falling in love, or so it seemed
It was probably the whiskey, or the July heat
Wandering through the streets

Now that buzz has long since ceased, and when I see a bug I squash it
I’ve no more long days to waste, more long lines crowd my face
There’s a girl here I can love, or so it seems
It could be the whiskey, or the ice that lines the streams
The years that change our feelings
The winds that age these dreams and steal away the July heat

But this life it moves so fast, so I will offer her this ring
Though I will not beg for happiness, for her I’ll only drop down on one knee
Because I still remember those sweaty dizzy streets
Where the nights came alive, back in the July heat
