WNL-LXXX: "I can feel the sting of summer on my skin"

I'm doing my best to enjoy the perks of adult living, so I don't usually find myself wishing to be in school again. But every once in a while, a three-month summer vacation wouldn't necessarily be a bad thing. This week's return to WNL is in honor of summer vacations from school and the magic they can create. If you're still enjoying them, soak 'em up... They're about as far from reality as you can get.
Walking along beneath the lights of that miracle mile
Me and Mary making our way into the night
You can hear the cries from the carnival rides
The pinball bells and the ski-ball slides
Watching the summer sun fall out of sight

There's a warm wind coming in from off of the ocean
Making its way past the hotel walls to fill the street
Mary is holding both of her shoes in her hand
Says she likes to feel the sand beneath her feet

And in the morning I'm leaving, making my way back to Cleveland
So tonight I hope that I will do just fine
And I don't see how you could ever be anything but mine

There's a local band playing at the Seaside Pavilion
And I got just enough cash to get us in
And as we're dancing Mary's wrapping her arms around me
And I can feel the sting of summer on my skin

In the midst of the music, I tell her I love her
We both laugh 'cause we know it isn't true
Ah but Mary there's a summer drawing to an end tonight
And there's so much that I long to do to you

But in the morning I'm leaving, making my way back to Cleveland
So tonight I hope that I will do just fine
And I don't see how you could ever be anything but mine

And in the morning I'm leaving, making my way back to Cleveland
So tonight I hope that I will do just fine
And I don't see how you could ever be anything but mine

Mary, I don't see how you could ever be anything but mine
