Summer sent me a bill from the electric windowsill
Water streams and it glides
The filter’s been old for awhile
Stucco walls all damp and dyed
At least I’m cool inside

“Never once," he replied
Said the groom to his bride
The machine broke in the night
How the heat went to their minds
Both had a dream they separated
Now it’s all in the air

August love
It can burn you,
It can make you
Make you fall apart

August love
Makes you thirst for,
It can crack your,
Crack your stone heart

“Never once”, she replied
Said the woman on his side
Flashing colors lit the sky
Blinds thin and cheap can try
Both were drawn and somewhat were faded
They used to move in the air

August love
It can burn you, it can burn you
It can make you
Make you fall apart

All our worries, all our noise
All our journeys, all our joys
Everything we try to fix
Everyone’s a swing and miss
Out the window, mornings there
Look at the birds in the air

August love
It can shake you, it can shake you
It can take you
Take right back to the start
