Blue as summertime
Lyrics
Blue as summer time
© 2006 Bruce Mills (ASCAP)

Nothing quite as blue as summer time
Not even lonely old Valentine's
Day by day - I'm counting through
Just to have my nights to dream of you

Nothing quite as blue as summer skies
When all I can think of are those lovely eyes
Even that lazy, crazy old moon
Misses your sweet perfume

Chorus
You might be riding somewhere on the evening train
Or high above the mountains - in an aeroplane
Or walking with a stranger - just to pass the time
Maybe you're sailing out on the sea

But in my dreams at night - you're here with me
And in your dreams - you still think of me
And time and distance would simply disappear
With a kiss - just one kiss

Nothing quite as blue as summer night
Not even the Mississippi in the cool star light
I guess this melancholy's gonna stay awhile
Until I see that smile - Oh, how long!

Break

Chorus
You might be riding somewhere on the evening train
Or high above the mountains - in an aeroplane
Or walking with a stranger - just to pass the time of day
That's OK - that's OK - that's OK

But in my dreams - you're right here with me
And in your dreams - don't you think of me?
You know time and distance would simply disappear
With a kiss - oh - oh - give me that kiss

Nothing quite as blue as a Valentine's
Like the one you never opened after all this time
I guess this melancholy's gonna stay awhile
Until I see those eyes and that beautiful smile
Nothing quite as blue
When I'm missing you
Nothing quite as blue as summer time
