you said the lake was cold
when you dipped in your toe
and called out to me in the night
i sat back by the table
sipping on a foreign ale
just watching you swim under the moonlight

when we fell to sleep
we fell to our knees
and cursed at the sun when it rose
we headed back to work
nursing heads that surely hurt
but we'd be back tomorrow night i suppose

in july
i held you in my arms and in my heart
in july
you were mine only for the month

we rolled around under the stars
and in the backseat of my car
we'd hide out from the other for a while
i kissed your neck, i kissed your cheek
i told you lies you believed
this thing we have ain't never gonna change

when august came and went the fall
just like my promise i would call
went flying out the window just the same
but i swear that every time
them summer months arrive
i miss you baby i wish you'd say my name
