QUOTE:

THE SUMMER OF MY LIFE Still the memory of you lingers Reaching deep inside my soul But without you these icy fingers Chill my heart out in this cold And I cannot see the reason As I wander through my past For the ending of a season That I dreamt would always last In our youth we took no notice Of the passing of the green For each year the spring would show us What a falling leaf can mean Now alone I can�t help wonder If for me the spring will come For my heart has been snowed under In this winter without sun CHORUS In my dreams I lie beside you In the warmth of our love�s dawn Where no winter�s chill can hide you Or remind me what is gone In my dreams there is no cruel fate No wind cuts me like a knife There the warm sun always sets late In the summer of my life While outside the rain keeps falling As through barren rooms I roam Still the echoes of you calling Fill this empty space of home But this feeling that I miss you That from now we�ll be apart That again I'll never kiss you Drives a dagger through my heart And I cannot see the reason That the ending came so fast That our lifetime�s happy season Is forever in the past And I cannot help but wonder If for me the spring will come Or that I'll ever get from under This dark cloud which blocks the sun CHORUS In my dreams I lie beside you In the warmth of our love�s dawn Where the darkest cloud can�t hide you Or remind me what is gone There I�ll always have the weather Which you brought me as my wife And our happiness together In the summer of my life ERIC PETTIGREW Kew, England
