Records on Repeat

I remember this song

And I know which song will come next

I remember the summer that this album was always on repeat

In the book shop

I would sit long enough to hear it twice

While reading about a house that devours the inhabitants

It was a beautiful thing

It fit the mood of everyone that summer

No matter how many times you heard it

No one ever seemed bored

People would sing along

We would breathe it in

Sink down

And come to that point of zen

That was the theme of that summer

When it was too hot to think

And too humid to survive

And we swam through the air

Like gasping fish on the shore

Here there was oxygen

Here was an oasis
