Streets are almost empty, shops are closed down

There's not a soul left in the bar to tell my troubles to

Think I'll walk down to the river that runs just south of town

I hate like hell when there ain't nothin' left to do

But stand beneath the river bridge and listen for the train

It's been a long hot summer, not a drop of rain

I broke down in December

I headed for the coast

I thought the wind and water would elevate my mind

I surfaced in the springtime feelin' like a ghost

Missin' more than ever the things I left behind

Now I'm standin' on this riverbank and still cannot explain

It's been a long hot summer, not a drop of rain

My bag is full of letters unopened and unread

I'm sure they'd tell the story of worry and of form

My heart is beating heavy with all we left unsaid

I swear to you I never meant you any harm

But sacrifice and compromise could never stand the strain

It's been a long hot summer, not a drop of rain

Tonight I'll close my eyes again and try to see your face

And listen for your voice to tell me it's alright to sleep

Convince myself I'll wake up in another time and place

Knowin' all the while that it's a promise I can't keep

A string of broken promises, another link of chain

It's been a long hot summer, not a drop of rain

The children on the playground, the lovers in the shade

Remind me of a life and time that feels more like a dream

When the sound of love and laughter was the music that we played

As we lay beside the waters of a never ending stream

Now the stream has gone to hiding, the dream lives on in vain

It's been a long hot summer, not a drop of rain

The clouds are building slowly on the skyline to the east

The wind and dust are dancing like the devil across the lake

I could try to find a bottle or try to find a priest

Salvation won't be traveling either road I take

So I turn my collar to the wind that echoes this refrain

It's been a long hot summer, not a drop of rain
