We Lived Under the Sun
April 14, 1987

We were glowing, flowing summer
and the sun shone in your eyes
The miracle of suntan
upon your lovely thighs

We lived summer in one day
We let everything winter simply fade away
We lived under the sun
and made love to everyone

It was madness that pushed us through the day
And cocktails and friendships that helped us along the way
We all had a different price to pay
And a new line to lead us from cold and gray

We lived summer in one day
And let the final icicles drip and melt away
We lived under the sun
and made love to everyone

We shared all the secrets of ancient worlds
And you even mentioned once mentioned your name
But you were one of many girls
And we lied and cried and played the same game

The day was fast and gone and soon forgotten
A love once new was spoiled and rotten
Only the lights of a distant car showed
That reality lurked just beyond the road

We lived summer in just one day
And let the snowpack melt away
We lived out under the sun
and made love to everyone

From the spot where your eyes first met mine
I imagined a love surreal, divine
I am sure that we'll ignite that spark again
When summer stays and becomes our friend
I see the storm clouds disappear
and know that summer love is near

We lived summer in one day
And let everything frigid melt away
We lived out under the sun
and made love to everyone
