Summer stretching on the grass
Summer dresses pass
In the shade of a willow tree
Creeps a crawling over me
Over me and over you
Stuck together with God's glue

It's been a long hot summer
Let's get undercover
Don't try too hard to think
Don't think at all

If you took a look inside


[REPEAT]


Not just deaf and dumb
I'm staring at the sun
Not the only one

Who's happy to go blind

There's an insect in your ear
If you scratch it won't disappear
It's gonna itch and burn and sting
Do you want to see what the scratching brings?
Waves that leave me out of reach
Breaking on your back like a beach

  Am     G

Intransigence is all around
Military still in town
Armour plated suits and ties
Daddy just won't say goodbye
Referee won't blow the whistle
God is good but will He listen?
I'm nearly great
But there's something I'm missing
