Lyrics: 

Young Summer Love: ©J Challis 2021

Summer love, for the first time
Summer dreams, and you were mine
I never thought the summer would end
But summers done, we cannot pretend
Summer love

Sweet sixteen
And my first real kiss
Never thought it would end like this
The days were long
The nights so warm
The two of us, together were drawn
But the nights are getting colder
You have to go
Will we ever meet, I just don’t know

Summer love, for the first time
Summer dreams, and you were mine
I never thought the summer would end
But summers done, we cannot pretend
Summer love

As the cold wind bites
I see the car lights disappear
A tear falls
As you are no longer here
We said “I love you”
We said this wont stop
But we were just two kids
Rolling down hilltops
The sun sets lower
The rain settles in
Summer love was growing
And now its disappearing

Summer love, for the first time
Summer dreams, and you were mine
I never thought the summer would end
But summers done, we cannot pretend
Summer love

Bring back the sun
Bring back you
I don’t ever want you to leave
Bring back the sun
Bring back you
I don’t ever want you to leave again

Summer love, for the first time
Summer dreams, and you were mine
I never thought the summer would end
But summers done, we cannot pretend
Summer love

You really captured the thrill of young summer love here. "Bring back the sun/Bring back you". I like the beat and you keep this right at the edge of happy memories and melancholy nostalgia. I like it!

Really nice sound, and lyrics for summer skirmish. I don’t remember those types of summers though. Mine were so different when I was teenager.

This is light and carefree and is a good reminder of how youth embraces life like that. I especially enjoyed this line: "But we were just two kids/Rolling down hilltops". I really enjoyed the guitar too, especially as it goes off on its own a bit. Very cool!

Very "summer"-sounding music. Good demo production, and I really dig the lead guitar work. I like your take on the prompt lyrically as well. I enjoyed listening.

What a wonderful summer love lost and longing song! The lyrics perfectly convey that special intensity of a summer romance and the heartache when it ends. And the guitar is absolutely fabulous! Love the rocking vibe and great guitar licks!
