about

By Summer, invokes 60's Surf Rock, 80's Prince, and modern R&B for a uniquely satisfying blend of nostalgia and effervescence just in time for the summer. The accompanying music video goes full camp with a surrealist parody of team Garth. debuting the track "live" on fictional late night show "Midnight Snack with Jimmy James Caucasia" (also played by Garth.)

lyrics

Now, I like fire but it’s burning through the place
And I admire how you carry it with grace
And, oh, how I try
I try to tell you you’re the one
As temperatures rise in the shadows of the sun

But if it’s cool by summer
Then I’ll be crying till the end of time
Don’t lose the mood by summer
Cause I’ll be dying, dying, dying, dying

Can we talk about labels, babe?
And if you’re seeing anyone
In the parking lot on display,
Days turn to midnights in the park, living off the spark

But if it’s cool by summer
Then I’ll be crying till the end of time
Don’t lose the mood by summer
Then I’ll be dying, dying, dying, dying
Dying, dying, dying, dying

You know what they say,“All of the good times-- good times may fade”
Let’s put them to shame and live for the wild ride-- stay high, unchained

If it’s cool by summer
Then I’ll be crying till the end of time
Don’t lose the mood by summer
Cause I’ll be dying, dying, dying, dying
I’m not a fool in the typical way
I’m not a smooth guy (just play it cool if it’s true now)
Just play it cool, baby, mean what you say
Don’t gotta buy time
No lies, no

I’m not a fool in the typical way
I’m not a smooth guy (just play it cool if it’s true now)
Just play it cool, baby, mean what you say
Don’t gotta bide time

I’m not a smooth guy (just play it cool if it’s true now)
I’m not a smooth guy
