So x4
Sweet summer night and I'm stripped to my sheets
Forehead is leaking, but the AC squeaks

And a voice from the clock says, your not gonna get tired
My bed is a pool and the walls are on fire
Soak my head in the sink for a while
Chills on my neck and it makes me smile
But my bones have to move and my skin's gotta breathe
You pick up the phone and I'm so relieved
You slide down the stairs to the heated street
The sun has left us with slippery feet
And I want to walk around with you x2
With you, with you, were goin

It doesn't really matter I'll go where you feel
Hunt for the breeze get a midnight meal
I pull down the the window as you point out the parks
Rip off your sleeves and I'll ditch my socks
Dance to the songs with the cars as they pass
Weave through the cardboard, smell that trash
Walking around in our summertime clothes
Know where to go when our bodies go
And we'll breathe it down this morning blues
With purple yawn, you'll be sleeping soon
And I want to walk around with you x2

When the sun goes down, well go out again x16

Don't cool off, I like your warmth

Let's see the sound of the heat from the sound of the rain
It's easy to sleep when I'm with my brain
You close my rest with a saccharin sheen
Kissing my wind through my window screen
The words are as close that I cannot hide
Too much on my mind, let's build outside
Do you wanna go stroll down and find a little stream?
My clothes are not soaked, but they're building sweet
And there's no one pushing for a place
As we act around an easy pace
And I want to walk around with you x6
Just you

    What about the whole last part (which is what I was looking for)...sounds like "In the sun we feel born again".
