“Summersong” by The Decemberists

“And summer arrives with a length of lights, and summer blows away, and quietly gets swallowed by a wave. It gets swallowed by a wave.”

Ramblin’, where to begin?
I tasted summer on your peppery skin
Been saved, the warm of the waves
I felt a slip into a watery grave

My girl, linen and curls
Lips parting like a flag all unfurled
She’s grand, the bend of her hand
Digging deep into the sweep of the sand

Waylaid, the din of the day
Boats bobbing in the blue of the bay
In deep, far beneath all the dead sailors
Slowly slipping to sleep

My girl, linen and curls
Lips parting like a flag all unfurled
She’s grand, the bend of her hand
Digging deep into the sweep of the sand

Summer arrives with a length of light
Summer blows away
And quietly gets swallowed by a wave
It gets swallowed by a wave…

CPE

I'm routinely overestimated.
