Sunday Sessions – Song 2

Dedicated to last week’s heat wave and to honor Jo Cose’s request:

Recording Session: Aug 6, 2006 / 5:30pm – 8:30pm Song: “Hot Summer Day,” written sometime 1998 Lyrics:

it’s like the motion of light in water it’s like the taste of rainbows it’s like the smell of clover on a hot summer day it’s like the feel of silk pajamas it’s like the sound of snow falling it’s like the memories of christmas on a hot summer day. clouds are falling lightning breaks the air is bruised and no rain falls, no no no no rain falls and it’s just like the time you said that you loved me and would I share your bed and it’s just like that awful night all night I held you and all night you cried it’s like the sleep of reason it’s like the terror tightening your heart it’s like suffocating beneath the sun on a hot summer day it’s like everything that’s good it’s like everything that’s scary it’s like shivering alone in the woods on a hot summer day clouds are falling lightning breaks the air is bruised and no rain falls, no no no no rain falls it’s like the destiny of death it’s like dawn rising glorious it’s like angel’s wing and angel’s breath on a hot summer day it’s the one thing that’s real to me it’s the fallen star at my feet it’s the thing that I most need on a hot summer day clouds are falling lightning breaks the air is bruised but no rain falls, no no no no rain falls.

I have also remixed “Nametag” for those who didn’t like the distortion on the chorus sections.

  1. thanks dude, you’re awesome. This is definitely a different version than the one you tried to teach me years ago, but I really like this one aslo. It also seems that there is an extra verse?? Whatever, I did it.

    OK, here’s another request. I can’t remember anything about it, but i think it was about a girl…maybe an ex…and it was a slow, sad song. Damn, I just can’t remember…it feels like it was a million years ago when we would hang out on your porch and talk about music and screenplays.

  2. BTW, the remix is spot-on…The distortion works well now. It sounds like you removed it from the vocals and left it on the guitar.

    Hey, I just thought of a challenge if you ever get bored with your Sunday Sessions…We, your fans, submit either lyrics or topics, and you have a week to write the song…just a thought.
