From the album Seasons Change

This track was written in London after experiencing "Exhibitionism" The Rolling Stones Exhibit put on at the Saatchi Gallery. We needed a break from the studio after several days being secluded inside . As we headed out riding the tube, Rodney challenged us to return with a song idea. After all how could we go see this amazing band's story and not come back with more than a memory. We get back that night and channeling the 'n roll vibe of the Stones, out comes "Spirit of Summer".

Recording this in the studio was lots of fun. We took the approach to just play it like we were performing for an audience. We ran the song several times and kept one whole performance of the band playing together.

Lyrics

Verse 1:
She's the spirit of summer
Girl of the sun, lover of fun
Filling your life full with light
She's the spirit of summer
Pulling you in, kissing your skin
But leaving you cold in the night

She's the Spirit of Summer
She's the Spirit of Summer

Chorus 1:
Oh what a season of love
Blowing through like a hurricane
Oh what a season of love
And I won't forget her name

Oh what a season of love
And I'll never be the same
Oh what a season of love
Driving me insane

Verse 2:
She's the spirit of summer
Burning you up, 'til it's enough to
To make you lose all control
She's the spirit of summer
Finding her way, to lead you astray
Needing a map to search your soul

Chorus 2:
Oh what a season of love
Blowing through like a hurricane
Oh what a season of love
And I won't forget her name

Oh what a season of love
And I'll never be the same
Oh what a season of love
Driving me insane


Tag:
She's the spirit of summer
Oh What a season of love
She's the spirit of summer
Oh What a season of love

She's the Spirit of Summer
She's The Spirit of Summer
