The only thing that matters in the summer
Is whether or not you get a tan
The only thing that I could do to help you
Is to drive you to the river or the sand
We'll forget what was there
We'll forget the salty air
We'll forget everything

The sun was shining down upon the mountains
Where we said the words that mean the most
I was not afraid of all the speaking
But I was just as white as a holy ghost
We'll forget who was there
We'll forget how they fixed their hair
We'll forget everything

The moment I pointed out the moon
I knew the sun was sleeping beneath our shoes
When I kissed your lips I thought I was so lucky
But when I kissed your fingertips,
It's poetry

The only thing that matters this winter
Is whether or not you warm my bed
We know the air outside is very cold my dear
You can use my arms to rest your weary head
I'll forget about my dreams
I'll forget about the way things seem
I'll forget everything but you
