The winter doesn't want you
It haunts you
Summer serenading's a long way
From this frozen place
Your face
 
Our teacher
Our preacher
It's nature
And like flowers growing in a bomb crater
From nothing, a rose
It grows
 
I've been thinking about the west coast
Not the one that everyone knows
We're sick of living in the shadows
We've one more chance
Before the light goes 
For a summer of love, love
Summer of love
Summer of love, love
Summer of love
 
Freezing, we're leaving
Believing that all we need's 
Ahead of us somewhere
In a summer to come
So we run
 
I've been thinking about the west coast
Not the one that everyone knows
We're sick of living in the shadows
We've one more chance
Before the light goes 
For a summer of love, love
Summer of love
Love, love
A summer of love, love
Summer of love
Love, love
 
Love, love
Oh, and when all is lost
When all is lost
We find out what remains
Oh, the same ocean's crossed
For some it's pleasure
For some it's pain
 
I've been thinking about the west coast
Not the one that everyone knows
In the rubble of Aleppo
Flowers blooming in the shadows
For a summer of love
A summer of love
