Summer Drug

lyrics

Peace for the winter I pray for you
that you find what you wanted to
in that old yesterday
you get no second chances babe
you walk out in the pouring rain
you get some kind of lost again

I've been waiting for you
to change your mind
I'm learning how to turn back time
I'll say good night but I don't mean mine
You're a summer drug
I guess that's good enough

You're still blind from the summer flame
love-drunk and whiskey-tame
on that old yesterday
you wake up and see the sky
you got no good reasons why
you're not just wasting time

I've been waiting for you
to change your mind...

about

Krister Axel Ashland, Oregon

I started playing piano in White Plains, New York because our black upright piano fascinated me and my sisters hated their piano lessons. That was in the 80's and I have never stopped writing songs. I write love songs and political songs but mostly love songs.

I play a lot of acoustic guitar, some electric, and different kinds of piano plus accordions and harmoniums and other assorted weird shit.
