You're the star of all my summer pictures
smiling, squinty-eyed and sunburn-skinned
somewhere on a golden stretch of roadside
of one of the states that we were in.

You're the one I rode with through the desert
played with in the sea and in the sand
We were headed in some right direction
but you never know just where you'll land.

Mondays always come
August days turn to Autumn
Leaves that floated once
sink down to the bottom.

You're a flash of gold in my old memory
though it wan't very long ago
Yearning turns the moments into lifetime
and time keeps getting faster as you grow

but somewhere on a golden stretch of roadside
you're still holding up a tattered sign
It says, "Darlin', come back, I still love you!"
but that place is only in my mind and

Monday will always come
August will always turn to Autumn
and my heart that fluttered
always sinks down to the bottom!
