Indian Summer
The sparks from the bonfire crackle and light up the night
The harvest moon off in the distance, low in the sky
The leaves are finally turning from green to gold
It was the warmest September on record, I’ve been told

Won’t you stay a while longer
I keep holding on like a star-crossed lover
But it won’t be long before we’re through with each other
If you leave me now, will I ever recover
My indian summer

We met in the back of my boat int he middle of May
For months, your warmth and radiance swept me away
I thought I’d be saying goodbye to you come Labor Day
But you stuck around longer than usual just for me

Won’t you stay a while longer
You keep holding on like a star-crossed lover
But it won’t be long before we’re through with each other
If you leave me now, will I ever recover
My indian summer

What if I packed up and followed you out of the blue
Spent half the year in Brazil or maybe Peru
Do you think things would stay just the same between me and you
Of would it get tired and old like yesterday’s news

Won’t you stay a while longer
We keep holding on like star-crossed lovers
But it won’t be long before we’re through with each other
If you leave me now, will I ever recover
My indian summer, indian summer
