lyrics

We faded away the sunshine today
The carnival has locked it's gates the rain is on its way
Where have you been my cinema queen?
Her water-colour memories slipped into a dream

Oh where does the summer go
If eternal sun shines in your eyes
Oh sing me your summer song
The Land of a Thousand Goodbyes

Bicycle blue I saw her in you
The king and queen of lonely dreams love begin to bloom
Time in freeze-frame someone whispered her name

Oh where does the summer go
If eternal sun shines in your eyes
Oh sing me your summer song
The Land of a Thousand Goodbyes

She read from her novel then threw it on the fire
Black songbird singing bird on a wire
Deep beneath the ocean beyond the light of day
The mermaids of the high tide swept them all up into play

Oh where does the summer go
If eternal sun shines in your eyes
Oh sing me your summer song
The Land of a Thousand Goodbyes
