You hold onto religion, you know, rules, regulations, traditions. I think what God is interested in is people's hearts, and that's hard enough. -- Bono, 2002

Every second has a reason
As the time slides away
Changing with the season
Just following the race
No need to be final
I'll put my thoughts on hold
Daydreams at the water
As the tide ebbs and flows

And it's okay
I'll take it day by day
This is summertime
There's nothing on my mind
And a man's called man
'Cause we forgive and understand
We forget and we deny
We lose and still we try
'Cause we love
'Cause we live
I miss you

Scars will widen open
Not a shade or trace of gray
And telephone, gas, electric
Unpaid, what can I say
Let us share a silence
When earth can occur
I'm not looking for commitment
Just give me your word

And it's, it's all okay
And take it day by day
This is summertime
With nothing on my mind
And a man's called man
Summer
'Cause we forgive and understand
We forget and we deny
We lose and still we try
'Cause we love
'Cause we live
I miss you
'Cause we love
We live

Oh, it's all okay
And take it day by day
This is summertime
With nothing on my mind
And a man's called man
We forgive and understand
We dance into the storm
Keep her through my arms
'Cause we love
'Cause we live
I miss you
Oh, it's all okay
The pains fade anyway
I miss you
This is summertime
With nothing on my mind
And man's called man
We forgive and understand
We forget and we deny
We lose and still we try
'Cause we love
'Cause we live
I miss you
'Cause we love
We live
Miss you

Oh, I miss you
Like a moon miss the night
When you see the wrong side
I miss you
Don't wanna say goodbye
I miss you
Pure man, pure man
I miss you
Daylight, sunlight
