Grand Superior I dream of white cities dark country roads One leads to the other and you are there The light it is brilliant the smell is green Stop breathing to listen to hear you Everwhere This land contains something I don't understand We try to contain it but it's only sand Slips through my hand a strand of your hair Caught in the wind I feel you Everywhere Will it break me I mourn in the light firestorm dawn It's gone in a moment gone to the sun The waves and the birds a wind's love affair Caught in this figure I feel you Everywhere And what can I have but this moment Will it break me This shore contains something I now understand Walking alone I know it's your hand Clouds take the sky gone the still air Wind strips them back and I'm falling Everywhere Crossing this lake is like crossing the world I will drown trying thinking of you The nightwater's in me I'm sinking no air Stop breathing to see you and stars are Everywhere And what can I have but this moment Will it break me ©Summersett 2015

I'm Comin' Over Your place has a fireplace and a guitar Your place has a staircase and it's where you are Your place has a window onto the park Your place has the doorknob that glows in the dark Your place has a cactus next to the bed Your place has the books that I've never read I'm comin' over No I'm comin' over I'm comin' I'm comin' over I'm comin' over Your place has the curtains that bathe us in blue Your place as the paintings you made in grade two Your place has the cat that purrs in the night Your place has the neighbour who brings us his wine Your place has the clocks that do not tell time Your place is always so much warmer than mine I'm comin' over No I'm comin' over I'm comin' I'm comin' over I'm comin' over Just a litte ocean between us, oh the world is small I could be in London by breakfast time- I could hop a flight to Montreal- I'll call when I'm down I'll call from the cab I'll call from the corner I'll call when I'm warmer... I wish I was over I wish I was over I wish I was over I wish I was over Your place has the roof that hums in the rain... Your place has the mugs we stole from the bar... Your place has a fire place and a guitar I wish I was over I wish I was over I wish i was over I wish I was over I wish I was over You ©Summersett 2015 summersettband.com

Real Life Head lights you've been coming at me all night and I'll go blind if I don't look straight ahead Tail lights you've been running from me all night goodbye maybe we'll meet again Is it something that I should have known is it something that I've always known oooooo is it something that'll take me back home... Meanwhile stay inside the white lines and the road signs tell me where not to go, real life you've been hittin' on me all night well it's alright I think we met long ago Is it something that I should have known is it something that I've always known oooooo is it something that'll take me back home (instrumental rainy driving music) Real life you've been hittin' on me all night well it's all right I think we met long ago Is it something that I should have known is it something that I've always known is it something that'll take me back home © Summersett 2015

Rain and Robin Dear man dear woman dear man you love the rain me too I love the rain and you but oh the rain and the robin the rain and the robin. Came to me when I was sitting alone leaves me so quick in flight the rain the rain you came to me so quick so slow... all of you in me and I remember this when I hear it... and oh it's so good to know of what I've lost in clear rain. the silent weeds a garden lost in a mind. and all of this it could fail at any time so don't leave now don't leave now don't leave now... cause what does the rain do unless it's mixed with you, unless it's mixed with you it's just rain falling giving itself to the ground tired until it makes new trees and shades so many things weeding the world, weeding so many things and we need so many things Dear many dear woman dear man you love the rain me too I love the rain and you but oh the rain and the robin the rain and the robin and oh it's so good to know of what I've lost in clear rain the silent weeds a garden lost in a mind and all this it could fail at any time so don't leave now don't leave now don't leave now... is this conversation tired ask that to the rain as it falls heavy to the ground looks tired But then it grows the tree feeds the one there who needs it easy and what does the rain do unless it's mixed with you unless it's mixed with you it's just rain falling giving itself to the ground tired until it makes new trees and shades so many things weeding the world weeding so many things and we need so many things Here it comes... on my toes on my clothes and on my chair left empty as I go into the house and I am no longer there but I'm thinking of you I'm thinking of you you you ©Summersett 2015 summersettband.com

Amsterdam A woman walks in Amsterdam She sees a painting she doesn't understand Words in a book that passed through your hands Did you ever go to Amsterdam What would we find, art takes time Against the daily death it does not die Words in a book that passed through your hands Did you ever go to Amsterdam When you left I found a man Will I ever know where did you land... (Instrumental) Who at the zoo has any sense Of a lioness behind her fence Words in a book that you left in my hands Did you ever go to Amsterdam When you left I found my man Will I ever know where did you land © Summersett 2015 summersettband.com

Bed Bug Like a bedbug in the city I keep moving round Forgive me cause I can't figure out From where my dinner's coming and if my bus is coming Cause that'd help me out They say that times are changing and that they're changing me I've got so many people don't know who I wanna be coffee or tea I'm gonna work it out I'm gonna work it out I'm gonna work it out I'm gonna find me out Found me in the city hanging over Forgive me but I can't figure out From where my heart is coming and if my bus is coming Cause that'd help me out I feel too old for changing too young to make you see The sugar in my coffee is who I'm gonna be I'm gonna show me That I can count up all the times when you have made me change my mind but now I'm next in line.. To work it out I'm gonna work it out I'm gonna work it out I'm gonna find me out I'm gonna work it out I'm gonna work it out I'm gonna work it out I'm gonna find me out Ooo Ooo Under the bed and waiting to show you what I can do Ooo

Life and Death everything that we've been could make my skin crawl to know who we are doesn't work at all doesn't work at all all the people we've been could make my skin crawl and if skin always wins softly breaks the fall softly breaks the fall We are coming to a head it has nothing to do with life or death it has everything to do with life or death in this moment and the others it is life and tell me who you are and what you need from me and I'll try to work with it and I'll try to work with it and I'll try to work with it and I promise that I'll try All the people we've been can make my skin crawl the fear of a love that doesn't change at all doesn't change at all Let me go baby if I have to I will crawl Like a baby from you and I won't miss the call I won't miss the call We are coming to a head it has nothing to do with life or death it has everything to do with life or death in this moment and the others it is life and tell me who you are and what you need from me and I'll try to work with it and I'll try to work with it and I'll try to work with it and I promise that Ill try We are coming to a head it has nothing to do with life or death it has everything to do with life or death in this moment and the others it is life and tell me who you are and what you need from me and I'll try to work with it and I'll try to work with it and I'll try to work with it and I promise that I'll try © Summersett 2015 summersettband.com

Big Sneeze There's nothing like cigarettes when you don't know how to feel and I think I'll never get over you We both have others who we don't quite love and we talk about this when we're drunk How is it that you make me forget all the things I'm trying to attain Then You go eat your dinner with the one who makes you feel at ease I hope you bruise your knees The big sneeze of you the hot cold of you the words you choose oh contented you how it burns me too and the time we lose.. There's nothing like cigarettes when you don't know how to heal and I'll never get over you I will never get over you I'll never You have another with a heart of gold and we fuck about this when we're drunk How is it that you make me lose myself and all the things I'm trying to attain Then You go eat your dinner with the one who makes you feel at ease I hope you bruise your knees The big sneeze of you the hot cold of you the words you choose oh contented you how it burns me too and the time we lose.. I will try not to come over in the night when you say it's over this time and I think that I can do it if I have my cigarettes and wine Charcoal in my lungs and the memories of your tongue it rolls through my face and then down to another place Are we lovers are we friends did we end or begin again I'm gonna show you all that I feel so you won't heal The big sneeze of you the hot cold of you the words you choose oh contented you how it burns me too and the time we lose the time we lose the time we lose the time we lose... © Summersett 2015 summersettband.com

Last Day We made a plan on the last day We lit a candle the last day We said the right things the right way We heard the wrong things anyway The old road is bending my new heart is late How could I have ever thought the road would run straight The good sky is swollen with new rain and dew How could I have ever thought the sky would stay blue We broke bread on the last day We both bled on the last day We did the right things the right way We felt the wrong things anyway The old moon is sinking behind the countryside How could I have ever hoped the old moon would hide The new sun is rising warming and blind How could I have never thought of time Do you remember the last day We buried the treasure on the last day We fell together the last day We loved each other anyway © Summersett 2015 summersettband.com

Si j’peux arriver Y'a chez toi une guitare et un foyer Chez toi, y'a l'escalier, c'est là où tu es Y'a chez toi mes barrettes qui traîne su'l comptoir Chez toi, y'a le prise qui brille dans le noir Y'a chez toi un cactus à côté du lit Chez toi, y'a le chat qui ronronne la nuit Si j'venais faire un tour... Y'a chez toi des restants dans le frigidaire Chez toi, y'a tes cadres de dessins du primaire Y'a chez toi ces livres que je n'ai pas lu Chez toi, y'a l'resto grec au coin de la rue Y'a chez toi la voisine qui partage son vin Chez toi, là où on est toujours si bien. Si j'venais faire un tour… (etc) Rien qu’un océan nous sépare Et sous les mêmes étoiles Je serai à Londres pour déjeuner J'prends le premier vol vers Montréal J'appelle en me posant Je t'appelle du taxi Une fois rendu dans l’coin Dès que je n'serai pas loin Si j'peux arriver… Y'a chez toi le toit qui gémit sous la pluie (piano) Y'a chez toi les verres qu'on a volés du bar (piano) Y'a chez toi un foyer et une guitare (piano) Si j'peux arriver… … à t'oublier.
