Death Cab For Cutie – Summer Years lyrics

[Verse 1]
Sometimes I wake at night
And watch the waves fall and the street lights
'Cause you're standing still in my mind
Fading out, waving goodbye

[Chorus]
And I wonder where you are tonight
If the one you're with was a compromise
As we're walking lines in parallel
It will never be and it's just as well

[Verse 2]
Sometimes I'm overcome
By every choice I couldn't outrun
Junctions all disappear
You can't double back to your summer years

[Chorus]
And I wonder where you are tonight
If the one you're with was a compromise
As we're walking lines in parallel
It will never be and it's just as well

And I wonder where you are tonight
If the one you're with was a compromise
As we're walking lines in parallel
It will never be and it's just as well
Just as well

[Instrumental Bridge]

[Chorus]
And I wonder where you are tonight
If the one you're with was a compromise
As we're walking lines in parallel
It will never be and it's just as well

And I wonder where you are tonight
If the one you're with was a compromise
As we're walking lines in parallel
It will never be and it's just as well
Just as well
