downtown in the shade
staring at the sunshine in my face
telling me to come and hide, come and play
i’m telling you the sun never goes away
and all i do is talk, talk, talk all day
i’m talking my life away
i’m staring at the sun again
till everything’s fading
it’s like a swollen summer
what if i’m getting dumber?
what if i’m just in denial?
what if they come and cop my style?
downtown in the clear
all i know is nothing ever changes here
and i know there’s no excuse and no defense
but my summertime never ends.
