Lyrics

[Verse 1]
The winter
Doesn't want you
It haunts you
Summer serenadings
A long way
From this frozen place
Your face
Our teacher
Our preacher
It's nature
And like flowers growing in a bomb crater
From nothing
A rose
It grows

[Chorus]
I've been thinking about the West Coast
Not the one that everyone knows
We're sick of living in the shadows
We have one more chance before the light goes
For a summer of love
A summer of love

[Verse 2]
We're freezing
We're leaving
Believing
That all we need is to head over somewhere
In a summer
To come
So we run

[Chorus]
I've been thinking about the West Coast
Not the one that everyone knows
We're sick of living in the shadows
We have one more chance before the light goes
For a summer of love
A summer of love

[Bridge]
Oh and when all is lost
When all is lost we find out what remains
Oh the same oceans crossed
For some it’s pleasure, for some it’s pain

[Chorus]
I've been thinking about the West Coast
Not the one that everyone knows
In the rubble of Aleppo
Flowers blooming in the shadows
For a summer of love
A summer of love
