[VERSE 1]
Nobody on the road
Nobody on the beach
I feel it in the air
The summer's out of reach
Empty lake, empty streets
The sun goes down alone
I'm driving by your house
Though I know
You're not home


[Chorus 1]
But I can see you
Your brown skin shining in the sun
You got your hair combed back and your
Sunglasses on baby
I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone


[VERSE 2]
I never will forget those nights
I wonder if it was a dream

Remember how you made me crazy
Remember how I made you scream

Now I don't understand
What happened to our love
But babe I'm gonna get you back
I'm going to show you what I'm made of


[Chorus 2]
I can see you
Your brown skin shining in the sun
I see you walking real slow
Smiling at everyone

I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone

[VERSE 3]
Out on the road today
I saw a Deadhead sticker on a Cadillac
A little voice inside my head said
"Don't look back, you can never look back"

I thought I knew what love was
What did I know
Those days are gone forever
I should just let them go but...


[Chorus 3]
I can see you
Your brown skin shining in the sun
You got the top pulled down
Radio on, baby

I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone

[Chorus 4]
I can see you
Your brown skin shining in the sun
You got your hair slicked back and those
Wayfarers on, baby

I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone
