Kiss me hard before you go
Summertime sadness
I just wanted you to know
That baby you're the best

Got my red dress on tonight
Dancing in the dark in the pale moonlight
Got my hair up real big beauty queen style
Highheels off, I'm feeling alive

Oh, my God, I feel it in the air
Telephone wires above are sizzling like a snare
Honey I'm on fire I feel it everywhere
Nothing scares me anymore
... 2, 3, 4

Kiss me hard before you go
Summertime sadness
I just wanted you to know
That baby you're the best

I've got that summertime, summertime sadness
Got that summertime, summertime sadness
Got that summertime, summertime sadness
Oh, oh

I'm feelin' electric tonight
Cruising down the coast goin' by 99
Got my bad baby by my heavenly side
I know if I go, I'll die happy tonight.

Oh, my God, I feel it in the air
Telephone wires above are sizzling like a snare
Honey I'm on fire I feel it everywhere
Nothing scares me anymore
... 2, 3, 4

Kiss me hard before you go
Summertime sadness
I just wanted you to know
That baby you're the best

I've got that summertime, summertime sadness
S-s-summertime, summertime sadness
Got that summertime, summertime sadness
Oh, oh

I think I'll miss you forever
Like the stars miss the sun in the morning skies
Later's better than never
Even if you're gone I'm gonna drive, drive

I've got that summertime, summertime sadness
S-s-summertime, summertime sadness
Got that summertime, summertime sadness
Oh, oh

Kiss me hard before you go
Summer time sadness
I just wanted you to know
That baby you're the best

I've got that summertime, summertime sadness
S-s-summertime, summertime sadness
Got that summertime, summertime sadness
Oh, oh

    The term 'Summertime Sadness' means when you were to have a holiday romance with someone special, however when you both return to your normal life's the spark is simply not there anymore. So in my opinion the meaning of this song is: two people meet in the summertime, they fall in love and spend lot of time together, but at the end of the summer when they are both forced to go back to their normal working life's the spark is gone but they still do miss each other, hence the title 'Summertime Sadness'.

    She is in love but is s ad about something but she jumps of the bridge and the song is like I love you but I'm jumping of this bridge because she is obviously depressed you can kind of figure it out from where she says I just wanted you to know that baby your the best and when she says I know if I go I'll die happy tonight.
