Sitting on my stoop on a warm early evening
With no cares or worries on my mind
Didn’t care for mosquitoes or the hot wet sweat
It’s what you get with the summertime

Was thinking ‘bout tomorrow, the drain and the weather
While today became yesterday
The fire in your eyes formed a perfect mirror
Of these hot and lazy summer days

And I long for November
The colored leaves on the ground
But these days will be over
When they’re gone then you’ll want them around

My lady was slaving a sure fire bet
And took the level to another shade
She was fanning the flames higher, her air would never change
These long hot lazy summer days

I used to think that I was intangible
Just skipping stones on a dry river bed
It took me several years just to figure it out
My heart was empty for something you couldn’t give

And I long for November
The frosting on the window panes
These days will get shorter
And distance helps the memories fade

Sitting on my stoop on a cold autumn evening
I’m feeling like I’ve been betrayed
I think of how I bitched, how I pined, now I miss
Those long hot lazy summer days

And I wish for the summer
Where you and I’ve seen better days
But those times have been over
They’re gone and they can’t be replaced
How I long for the hot summer days
