about

Just Like Summer is the first single off Lesley's first full-length album, Green Hearts, due out later in 2016.

lyrics

In like a lion - how you roared.
Made me forget all my words.
Then like a lamb - right out the door.
Oh, vicious cycle!

I want you but I know you're no good for me.
So how come whenever I see you, I keep thinking that you might be?

I love you just like summer.
I need you like the rain.
I long for you like springtime when winter comes again.
I want you like tomorrow,
But I know you just like yesterday.
I love you just like summer when summer goes away.

I had to escape from all this heat -
Was never catching my breath.
You're like a song stuck on repeat.
Oh, vicious cycle!

I want you but I know you're no good for me.
So how come whenever I see you, I keep thinking that you might be?

I love you just like summer.
I need you like the rain.
I long for you like springtime when winter comes again.
I want you like tomorrow,
But I know you just like yesterday.
I love you just like summer when summer goes away.
