Song Description

Lounge Jazz instrumental in a bassa nova style evoking the sensual attraction. Piano, alto sax, bass, drums, percussion, vibes, flute and electric guitar blend with a hint of Brazilian jazz.

Story Behind the Song

I wrote this instrumental to provide background atmosphere one might find in a classy restaurant or night club. Bossa Nova styled songs are known for their sultry and sensual tone.

Lyrics

Summer Night
© 2016, 2017 John Gerard Macchietto

Verse 1: I'll never know just how things would go
If I had --- never met you
You stood there so assuredly
On that hot --- summer night.

I hate to say --- I couldn't turn away from
Your haunting gaze when I met you
Remember how you looked at me on that
Hot summer night?

(Instrumental)

Chorus: Honey, --- you really threw me
I should be - in control - dear
I wonder how you captured me,
My heart and then my soul.

Verse 2: Was unaware that our love affair
Would blossom with such passion
What kind of magic did you use
On that hot --- summer night?

I cannot lie I will not defy
This yearning to be with you,
Do you know what you did to me
On that hot summer night?

(Instrumental)

Chorus: Honey, --- you really threw me
I should be in control dear
I wonder how you captured me,
My heart and then my soul.

Verse 3: I must confide what is deep inside
Of my heart each time you come near me
My craving for you grows each day
Since that hot summer night.

I must believe you will never leave
For I doubt I'd ever survive you
Remember, you have changed my life
On that hot summer night.

(Instrumental)

Chorus: Honey, --- you really threw me
I should be in control dear
I wonder how you captured me,
My heart and then my soul.

Verse 4: If you only knew what I'm going through
From that night you dispelled your magic
You'd understand there's no going back
From that hot summer night.

But I admit I would not permit
Erasing that I met you
I know that's when I fell in love
On that hot summer night
On that hot --- summer night
On that hot summer night.
