Summertime Waltz
Lyrics
Summertime Waltz
Jim Gach, BMI © 2007

Remember that summer when we met at the dance
Learning to two-step and do our first waltz
Before the downbeat my heart started to dance
With hypnotic eyes we fell into a trance

Chorus
We were just 17 doing the summertime waltz
Gliding over the floor, never felt that before
If that wasn?t true love then all love is false
We were just 17 doing the summertime waltz

As the heat of the summer kept our new love hot
We thought it would last forever and beyond
We our first love up in that old loft
The sweet smell of hay as we talked until dawn

Chorus

Bridge
I still treasure that hot summer romance
My first love forever I met a that dance

I didn?t think it would come to an end
That hot summertime or the love that we made
Then you wrote in a letter you hoped we?d stay friends
And with a broken heart I watched that summer fade

Chorus 2
I?ll never forget that summertime waltz
Gliding over the floor, never felt that before
If that wasn?t true love then all love is false
We were just 17 doing the summertime waltz

Outtro
Oh, we were just 17 doing the summertime waltz.
