Messina

Cruel Summer” by Bananarama

Hot summer streets
And the pavements are burning
I sit around

Trying to smile
But the air is so heavy and dry

Strange voices are saying
What did they say?
Things I can’t understand
It’s too close for comfort
This heat has got right out of hand

It’s a cruel, cruel summer
Leaving me here on my own
It’s a cruel, cruel summer
Now, you’re gone

The city is crowded
My friends are away
And I’m on my own

It’s too hot to handle
So, I got to get up and go

It’s a cruel, cruel summer
Leaving me here on my own
It’s a cruel
It’s a cruel, cruel summer
Now, you’re gone
You’re not the only one

It’s a cruel, cruel summer
Leaving me
Leaving me here on my own
It’s a cruel
It’s a cruel, cruel summer
Now, you’re gone

It’s a cruel, cruel summer
Leaving me here on my own
It’s a cruel, cruel summer
Now, you’re gone
You’re not the only one

It’s a cruel, cruel summer
Leaving me
Leaving me here on my own
It’s a cruel
It’s a cruel, cruel summer
Now, you’re gone
You’re not the only one
