lyrics

Remember on the fifth of July, after Independence Day
Your family lit up fireworks on the back lawn
We watched all the colors as they moved through the dark sky
I heard them all that night firing off until dawn

Your brother threw a bottle of soda out the second story window
Don't know what his plan was, but it wasn't a success
The contents of the bottle splattered all over the driveway
The kids all ran around while we cleaned up the mess

But now it's been a few weeks and I haven't seen you around
I hope that you'll come back sometime before the summer ends
I'll be waiting here like I always do
Then we can go and do it all again

Blowing bubbles on your front porch in the afternoon
People looked at us confused as they drove by
Sitting in the backyard laughing and wondering
Why the ice cream man plays Christmas carols even though it's July

Later we went swimming in the Long Island Sound
The cool ocean water in the warm summer heat
We let all the waves push us closer to the shore
As we stepped on rocks that left bruises on our feet

But the summer's nearly over and I haven't seen you around
I'm starting to wonder if you know me anymore
But if you decide to come back, you know where to find me
Just give me a knock on the door
Just give me a knock on the door
Just give me a knock on the door
