The Best Summer 2012 Song


Pinned Image

Someone get me a bonfire, a cool drink, a group of friends who are willing to hum along and one big, mesmerizing rainbow sunset. Or, just as good - get me an indigo blue sky behind the still skyscrapers and neon city lights, a glass of wine and a place to prop my feet. Either way - this is without a doubt my favourite new summer song, and it's nestled in an album that makes up the rest of my summer playlist. This little ditty reminds me of Henry David Thoreau, who said that "All good things are wild and free." What do you think?


Here come chilly preacher
Stumbling 'gainst the wind
Singing love, love is something to believe in
A prayer and the sea
And twenty tons of me
Crying love, love is something to believe in

To my child of wonder rambling
All my crooked fingers pointing blame
Let it all wash out in the rain
Yes let it all wash out in the rain

Beyond the drunken focus of my aim
All my heroes twisting in the flame
Let's let it all wash out in the rain
Let it all wash out in the rain

One more for forgiveness
Twisting in the cold
Singing love, love is something I believe in
Too much my defenses
Are dangling from the chain
Oh but free, free is something to believe in

To my god I want my gypsy train
Too my child a howlin' tambourine
Let it all wash out in the rain
Let it all wash out in the rain
Yes let it all wash out in the rain
Let it all wash out in the rain
