Jonathan Richmann: That Summer Feeling

(Gestern im Festsaal.)

That summer feeling
When there’s things to do not because you gotta
When you run for love not because you oughtta
When you trust your friends with no reason not ta (nada)
The joy I name shall not be tamed

And that summer feeling is gonna haunt you

(…)

If you’ve forgotten what I’m naming
You’re gonna long to reclaim it one day
Because that summer feeling is gonna haunt you

One day in your life.
And if you wait until your older
A sad resentment will smoulder one day
And Then that summer feeling is gonna haunt you
And that summer feeling’s gonna taunt you
And then that summer feeling is gonna hurt you
One day in your life.
