about

Acoustic guitar flavored piece written on the coast of Maine during summer 2007.

lyrics

In the childhood days of summer
Chasing fireflies
Third base runners
Spending time like no other time of year

Days so hot
Some nights so wicked
Sleeping bags all damp and sticky
Insects buzzing, dancing round my ears

While the whole summer rolls
Through the Fourth of July
And the fireworks at night – paint the sky
And everybody oohs and ahhs

Ooooooh … Ahhhhhh …

Holiday out by the ocean
Skin that smells of tanning lotion
Half through summer – shadows growing long

Wish there was a way to stop it
Keep the moment in my pocket
Pull it out and smell the briny air

For halcyon days fade to chill Autumn nights
That’s how it goes … yes it goes … much to quickly

Soft wavy curls
Not too hard on the eyes
And the fireworks at night – light the sky – light the sky

Humid dogged days of summer
Evening storms that spark the thunder
There’s rumbling in the distance

As the fall approaches slowly
Colors changing
Getting colder
Summer days are growing shorter

Then halcyon days fade to chill Autumn nights
That’s how it goes … yes, it goes … much to quickly … ‘fore you know

Now a child of faded summer
Autumn’s day rapidly numbered
Heading into winter weather

Wish there was a way to stop it
But I locked it in my pocket
Memories of my childhood days

In Summer --

about

Kevin White

After a stint in Special Ops, working covertly in the world's most dangerous hot spots, a chance meeting with a Zulu medicine man launched an interest in music.

For the healing power of song, as evidenced by Coca Cola's "We'd like to teach the world to sing", followed up by Pepsi's "The world sings out of tune", is instrumental-not in a literal sense, but a musical one; literally. Please enjoy.
