Keith Urban – ‘Til Summer Comes Around

Dit ‘Til Summer Comes Around van Keith Urban blijft deze week staan op #5 in de Billboard Top Country Songs hitlijst en aangezien ik het een prachtig nummer vind, promoot ik de single van Keith nog maar een keertje. Je kan trouwens in dit nummer goed horen dat Mark Knopfler van Dire Straits één van de voorbeelden was voor Keith.

Songtekst:

Another long summer’s come and gone
I don’t know why it always ends this way
The boardwalk’s quiet and the carnival rides
Are as empty as my broken heart tonight

But I close my eyes and one more time
We’re spinnin around and you’re holdin on tightly
The words came out, I kissed your mouth
No 4th of July has ever burned so brightly
You had to go, I understand
But you promised you’d be back again
And so I wonder ‘round this town
‘Til summer comes around

I got a job workin at the old park pier
And every summer now for 5 long years
I grease the gears, fix the lights, tighten bolts,
Straighten the tracks
And I count the days til you just might come back

And then I close my eyes and one more time
We’re spinnin around and you’re holdin on tightly
The words came out, I kissed your mouth
No 4th of July has ever burned so brightly
You had to go, I understand
But you swore that you’d be back again
And so I’m frozen in this town
‘Til summer comes around

Oh, and I close my eyes and you and I
Are stuck on the farris wheel rockin with the motion
And hand in hand we cried and laughed
Knowin that love belonged to us, girl,
If only for a moment
Baby, I’ll be back again, you whispered in my ear
But now the winter wind is the only sound
And everything is closin down
‘Til summer comes around
