Shadows of The Summertime - John Ralston

Shadows of the summertime
Grow long and lovely like a woman you can hardly hold
The shadows of the summertime groan like a lover to me
I was hoping later we'd meet at a party
That the both of us were dying to leave
Take a little drive beneath the planets, stars, the moon and the trees

Don't let go
You're my strongest hold
And I can't hold on forever
Unless you're holding on to me

I found out at a rock n roll show
That I'll never be a card in the hand that you fold
Yeah I pushed my chips in, laid out all my money
It was easy for me
So don't shake me up
Don't wake me up, please
I'm just sleepwalking in America's dream
Waited on the river card to take me all the way to the sea

Don't let go
You're my strongest hold
And I can't hold on forever
Unless you're holding on to me

Don't let go
You're my strongest hold
And I can't hold on forever
