Summer In The South
Written by Matthew Ryan & Neilson Hubbard

And so she said
I've had enough of almost there
I wanna know what it's like
Wanna know what it's like
Wanna know what it's like

Some nights I crave
Your body heat in conversation
I wanna know what it's like
Wanna know what it's like
Wanna know what it's like
To live
With You
To give
To you
To not
Be without
You
This Summer In The South

And so I said
I'm sick and tired of these foreign accents
I wanna know what it's like
Wanna know what it's like
Wanna know what it's like

To come home
and find you sleeping with the TV on
I wanna know what it's like
Wanna know what it's like
Wanna know what it's like
To live
With You
To give
To you
To not
Be without
You
This Summer In The South

Last night she said
I watched a plane disappear into space
Wanna know what it's like
Wanna know what it's like
Wanna know what it's like

Last night I said
I watched a plane slowly land near here
Wanna know what it's like
Wanna know what it's like
Wanna know what it's like
To live
With You
To give
To you
To not
Be without
You
This Summer In The South
