Bethany's Summer

from Four Years, Five States by The Flying Pigs

lyrics

We've got guts and we've got rights
But we all have our own inner fights
And when it seemed I just couldn't cope
You came out of the darkness
I gotta rock and you gotta roll
But we both need to stay under control
And when it seemed there was no hope
You came out of the darkness

And this was Bethany's summer
Where the storms kept us going through the night
This was Bethany's summer
Where we'd talk all day, and she'd hold me tight
If only in my dreams

I needed you and you needed me
It's not fair that we never could be
But whenever you stood by my side
I came out of the darkness
And though I'd rather keep us as two
Baby, I wish they made more of you
Because then there'd be no way to hide
I'd be out of the darkness

And this was Bethany's summer
Where the thunder kept us rolling through the night
This was Bethany's summer
Where we'd talk all day, and she'd hold me tight
If only in my dreams

Though I'd rather keep us as two
Oh God, Beth, I wish they made more people like you
Because then there'd be no way to hide
I'd be out of the darkness

And this was Bethany's summer
Where the thunder kept us rolling through the night
This was Bethany's summer
Where we'd talk all day and she'd hold me tight
If only in my dreams

And this was Bethany's summer
Where the storms kept us going through the night
This was Bethany's summer
Where we'd talk all day and she'd hold me tight
If only in my dreams
