A vocal masterpiece created by Jon McLaughlin and Sara Bareilles. The artists are both very different, but sing this song in a way that shows how artistic music is. That art is what the singers have in common.

Autumn never seemed this cold before
Here I am, sleeping on the floor
We changed just like the leaves
Outside my house
And my phone lay silent by the couch

I remember June
Back when I met you
And your eyes were green
And we were, too

But summer is over
We were tangled in the morning sun
I felt you getting colder
And we knew that we would come undone
And it's back to my town, back to your life
Gray skies are blowing a kiss goodbye to the lovers
‘Cause summer is over

I can still see your silhouette
In the white hot sand
I still feel your ring on my hand

And the clock was always ticking down
Behind that glass
I’m singing "love, be good while you last"

But we both knew
We were getting into
And the things we said
Sounded true

But summer is over
We were tangled in the morning sun
I felt you getting colder
And we knew that we would come undone
And it's back to my town, back to your life
Gray skies are blowing a kiss goodbye to the lovers
‘Cause summer is over

We were tangled in the morning sun
I felt you getting colder
And we knew that we would come undone
And it's back to my town, back to your life
Gray skies are blowing a kiss goodbye, goodbye…
Summer is over
We were tangled in the morning sun
I felt you getting colder
And we knew that we would come undone
And it's back to my town, back to your life
Gray skies are blowing a kiss goodbye to the lovers
‘Cause summer is over.

The song shows  a relationship ended like the beauty of summer, and uses a metaphor that compares a summer romance to the changing seasons -“we changed just like the leaves”-. It also relates the love to the cold of winter and  how the lovers fell in love and took the risks when they knew it would eventually end badly -“the clock was always ticking down behind that glass singing love, be good while you last”-. .
