“You've gotta leave right now cause
Any second now he's gonna walk through that door”
She waited then she walked but the very next thing
She was crying down on the floor

Not knowing what to say, he lit a cigarette
And he thought, “What the hell was that for?”
Time makes another day but everybody knows
You can never have what you gave up before

Hold on, summertime, please don't leave me on an empty stage
Curtains coming down, it's coming down, down, down
Leave me, summertime, I've seen everything I need to see
But I keep on coming for more

The key turned, and then he walked in
Everybody saw, everybody knew how far this had gone
He looked around, and then said,
“So this is how it ends.”

Well the same day passes in another way
Can you feel it? Oh, the sting!
It ties you up and leaves you all alone
When you've only got one string
