Summer

It was a hit afternoon the last day of June
And the sun was a demon. 
The clouds were afraid one ten in the shade. And the pavement was steaming.

The opening lines from the 1973 hit Summer by Bobby Goldsboro which are on a continual loop in my head this morning. 
As I readjust from working nights all my tired brain could offer today is that song. 

The song tells the story of a 17 year old boy losing his innocence to a 31 year old woman with the classic line, 'We sat on the sand, and a boy took her hand
But I saw the sun rise as a man'.
