Cheap sunglasses and a ball cap
Backwards standing in the summer sun
Toes in the sand and a July tan
Oh, baby, tell me what's not to love

Your mama didn't like me
Or the way that you loved me
She prayed that it was a summer thing
You thought I was wild
And I didn't say it at the time
But you're my first time for everything

Oh, there's nothing I'd change about those days
You're the sweetest thing about my past
There's a part of me that hopes you found your dreams
And you're happy wherever you're at
There's a part of me that wants that summer back

We burned both ends of that beach town
Till they shut down the midway
We tried to hold on, but that warm breeze was gone
Yeah, fall changed everything

But there's nothing I'd change about those days
You're the sweetest thing about my past
There's a part of me that hopes you found your dreams
And you're happy wherever you're at
There's a part of me that wants that summer back

There's a picture of you and me I keep
It reminds me that we were real
Girl, I sure do miss that beach
And the way that you made me feel

But there's nothing I'd change about those days
You're the sweetest thing about my past
There's a part of me that hopes you found your dreams
And you're happy wherever you're at
There's a part of me that wants that summer
There's a part of me still wants that summer
There's a part of me that wants that summer back

I want that summer back, baby
Oh
