Living by myself again:
familiar face, my oldest friend.
Starting to get sick of him
and the heartbreak summer.
August here is hot as hell,
dress in black so you can't tell.
Laughing hides the pain so well
in a heartbreak summer.
Do you feel it too? Seems like every time we try we lose.
So I am giving up, laying down under the mercy of the sun.
Count the times I've said the words:
it's not enough, or I'd have learned
how to float and how to surf
through a heartbreak summer.
Felt the pull under the sea,
I grabbed you when it grabbed me.
Dragged you down, you couldn't breathe
through the heartbreak summer.
Do I need to go? Maybe all that I could say you'd know.
So I cry more than you–it's the last unfair thing I could do.
Wait around for fall to come.
Used to drink a lot, now I just want one
to take the edge off the burning sun
of a heartbreak summer.
