Lyrics

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

I can see you
Your brown skin shining in the sun
You got your hair combed back and these
Sunglasses on baby
I can tell you

My love for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone

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 baby, when I get you back
I'm gonna show you what I'm made of
I can see you
Your brown skin shining in the sun

I see ya walkin' real slow smiling at everyone
I can tell you
My love for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone

Out on the road today
I saw a Black Flag sticker on a cadilac

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 'em go but
I can see you
Your brown skin shining in the sun
You got the top pulled down and the
Radio on baby

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