Verse:
        Cm   Ab
I can't sleep
Eb               Bb
Ain't no sleep a'coming
          Cm          Ab             Eb  Bb
I'm just lying here thinking 'bout you
       Cm  Ab
I'm in deep
         Eb             Bb             Cm           Ab                Eb  Bb
Falling deep into the picture in my mind of everything we're gonna do
Cm          Ab         Eb           Bb
Over at the lake and down by the river
         Cm      Ab         Bb
You can feel it start to rise
      Cm           Ab       Eb           Bb
Wanna jump in my car, go wherever you are
         Cm        Ab       Bb   
'Cause I need you by my side

Chorus:
                Ab                  Eb
It's gonna be a long, hot summer, we should be together
            Bb                      Cm   Bb
With your feet up on the dashboard now
          Ab               Eb                           Bb
Singing along with the radio, it's such a beautiful sound
             Ab                   Eb                   Bb
And when you say my name in the middle of the day, I swear I see the stars 
     Cm
come out
Bb         Ab                                                         Bb
 When you hold my hand in the back of my mind, just waiting on the sun to go 
Cm Ab Eb     Bb        Cm Ab Eb Bb
down, the sun to go down

Verse:
        Cm Ab     Eb          Bb              Cm          Ab     Eb   Bb
I wanna see your brown skin shimmer in the sun for the first time
        Cm Ab     Eb             Bb           Cm           Ab            Eb   Bb
I try to be the one who knows just what to do to you to get me that smile
Cm             Ab        Eb              Bb             Cm        Ab        Bb
One chance of meeting, you were walking by me on the street and I said hi
     Cm            Ab               Eb    Bb                 
And that was the beginning of my heart spinnin' 
           Cm            Ab       Bb
like these wheels in my head tonight

Chorus:
                Ab                  Eb
It's gonna be a long, hot summer, we should be together
            Bb                      Cm   Bb
With your feet up on the dashboard now
          Ab               Eb                           Bb
Singing along with the radio, it's such a beautiful sound
             Ab                   Eb                   Bb
And when you say my name in the middle of the day, I swear I see the stars 
     Cm
come out
Bb         Ab                                                         Bb
 When you hold my hand in the back of my mind, just waiting on the sun to go 
Cm Ab Eb     Bb        Cm Ab Eb Bb
down, the sun to go down

Bridge:
Dbadd9                   Fm       Bb
The only place that I wanna be is where you are
Dbadd9                   Ab                Bb7?
'Cause anymore than a heartbeat away is just too far

Interlude -x2-: Ab  Bb

Chorus:
                Ab                  Eb                  Bb   Cm   Bb
It's gonna be a long, hot summer, we should be together
Ab                    Eb                            Bb   Fm  Eb  
All I really want is more than this moment right now
             Ab                   Eb                   Bb
And when you say my name in the middle of the day, I swear I see the stars 
     Cm   Bb
come out 
               Ab
And when you're holdin my hand and I look into your eyes
                                              Bb
I swear it looks like you're waiting for the sun to go 
Cm Ab Eb     Bb        Cm Ab Eb Bb
down, the sun to go down
