lyrics

Late summer skies swirl in watercolor shades of blue
Waves all crashing to the beat of autumn’s coming tune
Seagulls silhouetted in an early evening moon
Mark the summer’s end

Cast your nets, old fishermen, so weathered by the sea
Your wrinkled eyes of age seem to care not what will be
The tattered sails on driftwood boats like banners waving free
Speak of summer’s end

Summer marks the changes in our lives that fade away
Like tides that mark a memory on a pier at Cape Cod Bay
Autumn winds in maritime blow nearer every day
And we are cold

Summer marks the changes in our lives that fade away
Like tides that mark a memory on a pier at Cape Cod Bay
Autumn winds in maritime blow nearer every day
And we are cold

A town in Maine beside a weathered beach of brownish gray
Is my home the ocean where I will forever stay?
If I changed, I wonder, would you still be here today
At the summer’s end?

Goodbye, old friend
