She doesn't see the coming fall,
She doesn't show no fear at all;
Bring on autumn moon or the driving rain,
I only hope I see her face again.

Everything is gonna be alright
when summer comes,
The darkest stars will burn so bright
when summer comes;
We will open up our bodies
to the warming of the sun,
When summer comes.

I will wait in silence until she returns,
To melt the frozen prison
'round this fool who never learns;
Every living thing that's born
must have its end;
What winter takes away,
spring brings back again.

Everything is gonna be alright
when summer comes,
The darkest stars will burn so bright
when summer comes;
We will open up our bodies
to the warming of the sun,
When summer comes.

Summer doesn't feel the coming frost,
She doesn't yield to pain or loss;
Death, where is thy victory,
where is thy sting,
When every year we hear
the birds of summer sing.

Everything is gonna be alright
when summer comes,
We will walk into the light
when summer comes;
We will open up our bodies
to the warming of the sun,
Everything is gonna be alright
when summer comes;
We will open up our bodies
to the warming of the sun,
When summer comes.
