lyrics

It Would Last
By Summer XO

My mind read
What the look in his eyes said
felt my heart startin' to sink
I barely knew his name
but I didn't care about that kind of thing

I cared the stars up in the sky
I cared about that look in his eye
i cared about the rain on the roof
an' maybe a little about him too

i cared about having the time of my life
laughing and dancing the whole night
i cared about the drink in my glass
of course i knew it would end

but i thought part of it would last
i thought part of it
part of it would
last

It's funny
When you open your body
How it makes you think you know someone
then you realize in the end
you were just strangers having a little fun

Ignoring
Everyone’s warning
They say, “Girl, would you listen to me--
You’re asking for heartbreak.”
But I didn’t care about that kind of thing
I cared the stars up in the sky
I cared about that look in his eye
i cared about the rain on the roof
an' maybe a little about him too

i cared about having the time of my life
laughing and dancing the whole night
i cared about the drink in my glass
of course i knew it would end

but i thought part of it would last
i thought part of it
part of it would
last
(part of it would)

it's not that i thought
we would be lifetime lovers
i just thought once in a while
we would talk to each other
of all the things that i cared about
i guess i left that one out

I cared the stars up in the sky
I cared about that look in his eye
i cared about the rain on the roof
an' maybe a little about him too

i cared about having the time of my life
laughing and dancing the whole night
i cared about the drink in my glass
of course i knew it would end

but i thought part of it would last
i thought part of it
part of it would
last

about

Summer XO Los Angeles, California

Summer XO is a girl. A girl who writes songs, then sings them while playing guitar and keyboard. It's not rocket science.

But it is authentic.

In the indie-pop style of Feist, Fiona Apple, and Regina Spektor, the music is clear-voiced with an inevitable lyrical twist.

She is an American currently based in Los Angeles.
