about

First single from the debut album

lyrics

I was haunted, I was lost at sea
I was clinging to a younger me
So I quit my job and I got on a plane
To Tokyo, just to keep me sane

Summer sonic, met the girl you know
Crop top, short shorts and a smile that could change the world
Gave her my number, see you at the show
Said she would text me, didn’t text me though

Then finally, “where you at?” popped up on my phone?
But I had no service so I couldn’t respond,
Just when all hope was gone
I saw her

She was on the dance floor
She saw me and she pulled my arms around her
Never felt so sure
All was right, as we danced to the song of the summer
Song of the summer, song of the summer
I kissed her on the dance floor
And I just can’t forget her

Woke up the next day when she messaged me
I took her towel accidentally (yes)
"I don't care", she said, "let’s hang tonight"
I got lost on the way but I felt alright
She took the week off, we got on a train
Wandered endlessly and mostly went to huge arcades
Drank by the river and we talked all night
And when we kissed, we went back in time (to when)

Finally, "where you at?” popped up on my phone
But I had no service so I couldn’t respond
Just when all hope was gone
I saw her

She was on the dance floor
She saw me and she pulled my arms around her
Never felt so sure
All was right, as we danced to the song of the summer
Song of the summer, song of the summer
I kissed her on the dance floor
And I just can’t forget her

Kiss you on the dance floor
We can wander Tokyo for days
Laughing in the sex shops
She don’t even care what anyone say
Kiss you on the dance floor
I can pull you right up to the stage
I don’t even care what… people say

She was on the dance floor
She saw me and she pulled my arms around her
Never felt so sure
All was right, as we danced to the song of the summer
Song of the summer, song of the summer
I kissed her on the dance floor
and i just can’t forget about her

Never felt so sure
And I just can’t forget about her
Song of the summer, song of the summer
I kissed her on the dance floor
And all was right as we danced to the song of the summer
