Era 2000 and later



The days are tumbling down like dominoes
The blush on the hollyhock, the firefly?s glow
Are slipping away
Barefoot mornings when the dew jewels shine
Sucking the sweetness from a honeysuckle vine
Slipping away

Slipping away, summer come back again
I miss your warm breath against my skin
You pass through each year, but you never stay
When the cold winds blow, summer, you?re slipping away

Afternoons drifting through your soft scented haze
Searching for the sapphire in the Queen Anne?s lace
Slipping away
Nights lying under your starry canopy
Listening to the lullably the meadowlark sings
Slipping away


You laid a banquet at my feet
Invited me to taste your fruit so sweet
But I took your for granted and now you?re gone
Won?t you call to me again with your siren?s song
