Mark Erelli — Summer Night lyrics

(Bill Morrissey)

You've traveled the river
From end to end
Never found a true love
Anywhere you've been
Never broke a heart
That wouldn't mend
On such a lovely summer night

Hands in your pockets
As the band begins
Stand by the window
A touch of locust in the wind
This might be just one more town
You'll say you've been in
On such a lovely summer night

You take your chances
When you start to roam
Waiting for slow dances
Then you ask to walk her home
And if she says, Please stay
You'll say, I might
On such a lovely summer night

You hold her close, yeah
Look her in the eye
You make her laugh
Then sing that one song to make her cry
And maybe this is that one town
Where there's no goodbye

You take your chances
When you start to roam
Waiting for slow dances
Then you ask to walk her home
And if she says, Please stay
You'll say, I might
On such a lovely summer night
