Roll and tumble with your big heart falling
You roll and tumble alone
You reach forever with your dirty hand's holding
You reach for something you will never know
Heard you singing in a Taco Bell bathroom

Heard you singing a Cheap Trick song
Yeah, we sang Surrender all the way the county line
When I listen to that music
It makes me think of summertime

Yeah, that acid summer
We were wasted and happy
We were laughing in the sunshine
(Sunshine)

You twist and turn with your bright eyes shining
You twist and turn in the California sun
You wait forever for the life you dream of
You wait for something that will never come

You twist and turn in the slow motion daydream
You twist and turn in your own sweet hell
I don't get too close to the fire anymore
But when I think of you now, it makes me think of summertime

Yeah, that acid summer
We were wasted and happy
We laughing in the sunshine
Laughing in the sunshine
Laughing in the sunshine
Laughing in the sunshine
In the sunshine

Twist and turn with your bright eyes shining
Twist and turn in the California sun
Wait forever for the life you dream of
You wait for something that will never come

You twist and turn in the slow motion freefall
You twist and turn in your own good time
I can't watch you twisting and turning anymore
No I never thought a good time would turn into a lifestyle

No I just can't watch you wait anymore
But when I think of that summertime
It always seem to make me smile
(Smile)

Yeah, that acid summer
We were wasted and happy
We were laughing in the sunshine
(Go)

We were laughing in the sunshine
(Go)
Laughing in the sunshine
(Go)
Laughing in the sunshine
(Go)
