The Decemberists Summersong Lyrics

Summersong

Ramblin' where to begin
I tasted summer on your peppery skin
Been saved, the warm of the waves
I felt a slip into a watery grave

My girl, linen and curls
Lips parting like a flag all unfurled
She's grand, the bend of her hand
Digging deep into the sweep of the sand

Summer arrives with a length of lights
And summer blows away and quietly gets swallowed by a wave
It gets swallowed by a wave

Waylaid the din of the day
Boats bobbing in the blue of the bay
In deep far beneath
All the dead sailors slowly slipping to sleep

My girl, linen and curls
Lips parting like a flag all unfurled
She's grand the bend of her hand
Digging deep into the sweep of the sand

Summer arrives with a length of lights
And summer blows away and quietly gets swallowed by a wave(x4)
