YOUNG SUMMER LOVE sung by Mary Grimley
Lyrics
YOUNG SUMMER LOVE
Words and Music by Mary Cole Grimley

VERSE 1
Young, Summer Love,
Wild and warm and free,
Surfing in the ocean,
Playing in the sand.
Young, Summer Love,
Strolling round the cliffs,
Gently kissing in the sunset,
Loving until dawn.

CHORUS
But know that young, summer love won't last for ever.
Its dewy grapes must turn to Autumn wine.
Though older souls watch the days grow shorter,
Dream endless summer in the sand,
Young, Summer Love.

VERSE 2
Young, Summer Love,
Full of hope and joy,
Keep your spirits soaring,
Treasure every day.
Young, Summer Love,
Linger fierce and free.
Bask in lazy sunlight.
Each day - a souvenir.

CHORUS
But know that young, summer love won't last for ever.
Its dewy grapes must turn to Autumn wine.
Though older souls watch the days grow shorter,
Dream endless summer in the sand,
Young, Summer Love.

( Sax. instrumental bridge )

VERSE 3
Young, Summer Love,
Glinting in the sun,
All these silver moments
Turn gold in memory.

CHORUS
But know that young, summer love won't last for ever.
Its dewy grapes must turn to Autumn wine.
Though older souls watch the days grow shorter,
Dream endless summer in the sand,
Young, Summer Love.

TAG ENDING
Dream endless dreams -
Young, Summer Love.

Description
Short Song Description:
The singer describes youthful, innocent love on a summer beach from the vantage point of age and encourages youth to enjoy their youth and live the dream while they can.
Long Song Description:
This Easy Bossa is in 4/4 time, 128 bpm, and is themed on the innocence of young love before harsh reality sets in. The concept is to allow youth to dream their dreams and let us old people worry about the days growing shorter! Let the young store up beautiful summer memories to warm them in old age!
Story Behind the Song:
I was remembering my youth as a teenager, holidaying on the beach at Langland Bay, Swansea on the Gower peninsula and watching all the young people enjoying themselves, as did I.
