lyrics

August Nights

We were skipping on the 8th Street Bridge,
ice cream cones, summer gnats and old friends.
Rosa's ghost was standing next to us
your mom, your dad - the place where you born.

Sharing in me your life I'm sharing with you,
I never knew a person as sweet as you.

But now,
I'm left here to fall asleep
and dream of those August nights.

You slipped along a shore and a lighthouse scheme,
monologues and Desdemona's crown.
I could never frown in these arms with you.
Blue is the lake, the canto and the scene.

I'm falling deep and fast and long, yea.
You're everything, beauty and the sky.

But now,
I'm left here to fall asleep
and dream of those August nights.

I never thought a day could be so pure, yea.
I never thought that you would be the cure.

But now,
I'm left here to fall asleep
and dream of those August nights,

and dream of those August nights.
