EIGHT MINUTES FAST

Summer nights should last forever

Smells of lavender and pine

As we lie here by the water

You keep worrying about the time

Running from the lake to my car

Now the seats are soaking wet

I forgot this clock's eight minutes fast

We don't have to leave just yet

Chorus

June has faded to July

The Dog days of August are coming soon

But right now it's just you and me

This crystal lake, this golden moon

Eight minutes can be forever

If we play our cards just right

Why worry about tomorrow

When all we need is tonight?

When I wake up you're sleeping in the passenger seat

We should have been back hours ago

We can always say the car broke down

Nobody has to know

On second thought why should we care

What anyone will say?

Go back to sleep, the sun comes up

In just eight minutes anyway

Summer nights should last forever

Smells of lavender and pine

As we lie here by the water

Not worrying about the time

Chorus

June has faded to July

The Dog days of August are coming soon

But right now it's just you and me

This crystal lake, this golden moon

Eight minutes can be forever

If we play our cards just right

Why worry about tomorrow

When all we need is tonight?
