Where the Summer Never Ends

from Man of the House by Peter Squires



we tell ourselves
we don't deserve it
this is where we belong
we have to carry this burden
no matter how the mercury falls

we tell each other
all of the time
that to be alive
you have to suffer
to revel in momentary relief

our lives together
have always been better
when the sun is out later
and the temperature is warm
i don't know why
it took this long to decide
we were meant to live where the summer never ends

so we're moving to new orleans
because we've forgotten how to party
but they'll remind us there
and they'll become our friends

we were meant to live where the summer never ends

i refuse to die in a frozen tundra nightmare
