I’ve really taken a liking to this song and have been rewriting it and working on it a lot lately. I originally wrote it August 30th of last year. That seems so long ago now that I’m living in a different state with a different life completely.
I kicked butt on the old recycling route today. Ten hours straight with no break. The funny thing is I was working extra hard to get a few hours off tomorrow. But tomorrow, I’ll probably start working ahead (like I was doing today) to knock a few hours off of Thursday. Hence, what happened to summer? Going to school as a kid and having all those months off does not prepare you for what summers are going to be like later in life. You mean I have to work instead of going to the pool?
One summer in my teens, my friends and I lived in this old house out the country and had a blast. I had a studio set up with the same drums I’m still playing here today. I wrote tons of songs about the wonders we had around us and all of our shanigans. I always used to play this chorus back then but I never wrote a song to it. Until today. This transports me back to 1993. We were always waiting on Kelly to get back so we could go to the river.
Thanks for listening!
