Mary Rocap: Music

Indian Summer

(Indian Summer off of Indian Summer)

remembering the summer days of youth, of lying in the hammock reading, all day long

Oh the days of Indian Summer

Oh the days of warmth before cold

I'm trying my best to remember

Reminisce before I forget

Seasons meet in September

I say good-bye to one with regret


I remember summer vacation

Such a lazy time as a child

I used to wake up in the morning

I used to have time on my hands

Now it's slipping right through my fingers

Time won't slow down for no man


Summer is a season of freedom

Summer is a season of love

We came together in summer

We came together in love

We've stayed together ten winters

Thanks be to heaven above


Oh the nights of Indian Summer

Fireflies dancing with stars

Crickets chirping a message

Warning of a change to come

I feel a chill upon me

I'm heading for the comfort of home
