about

an ode to hot summer love, a changing of seasons, and counting on good memories to get you from the chaos to the calm.

lyrics

high bush gettin' higher, gotta stack that wood,
missin' your little Ray-of-Sunshine but babe the times good.
And you can't take this city for much longer anyway,
heading back to the wild, wild, woods, home to the Eastern Cape.

As the days get colder and the nights get long
and the coyotes howl their hungry songs,
I'll be thinkin' of the August sun

what am I gonna do when you fly away from here
dive deep back into my work and get on with my years
nobody's ever warmed me up or dried me off so well
or kept me safe in comfort as my flesh began to swell

As the days get colder and the nights get long
and the coyotes howl their hungry songs,
I'll be thinkin' of the August sun

those blueberries, and chanterelles ain't gonna pick themselves
and I am off to catch a wind, and dawn a painted shell.
and I can't take this city for much longer anyway,
heading out to live a dream, we'll meet again someday.

As the days get colder and the nights get long
and the coyotes howl their hungry songs,
I'll be thinkin' of the August sun

I'll be thinking of the August sun...
