Title: The Last of the Summer Days
Written and arranged by: Mike Field in March 2012
Performed by: Sophia Perlman and The Mike Field Jazz Quintet on the album "Rush Mode"
I've come back home to where we have grown
When will we begin again to dream of a love that was once like our own?
Now is the evening of love's sad regress
Far from here is where I must be and soon we will forget
If you were to say that you've gone astray
Would it be the last of our long, long summer days?
Come to me now, fill my heart with sorrow
Leave me to carry it all away
I'm longing for release from your sweet reminder
Of the ways that we used to make our endless days grow longer.
