Last summer

My friend,

You look as lonely

As the rose upon your grave

And I know as well as you do

That it's gonna take more than

Holy water to clear my conscience of last summer.

If love was meant to last forever

It wouldn't fade away

It wouldn't make me feel

Like something's missing

Like myself

Oh to live the way it was

Last summer

Last summer

In sin, in vice

Tossing turning

Acting naughty and nice

It still blinded me

It still blinded me

I guess the summer sun was too much for my true blue eyes.

I turned I lived I tried

I laughed I fought I cried

Too bad it couldn't have lasted forever

I lost everything I ever worked for

I ever hoped for

And it will never come back to me

He destroyed me with his debauchery

Bacchus, his god, on his knees

Blowing decadence more than loving me

Trapped there was no way out

Until November 4 you died

Oh to live the way it was

Last summer

Last summer

In sin in vice

Tossing turning

Acting naughty or nice

It still blinded me

It still blinded me

I guess the summer sun was too much for these burned eyes.

My friend,

You are just as lonely as the rose upon your grave

I'm trying not to sob

But I miss you a lot

I know you worked things out

To get me out of the hell

Thank you thank you

Dear friend dead and gone

You rescued me from all

The beauty and glory

Of waning like the summer days.

It wasn't worth it anyway.
