The Saddest Summer of Samuel S

The letter arrived out of the blue

Ten years past since I last saw you

My mother handed it to me discreetly

With a look that said be careful it’s from you know who

So I never said a thing not a word to anyone because

I knew what was coming what had to be done

And the Saddest Summer of Samuel S

Was the book she was reading when we first met

I read her letter alone on the bus

I fell under the spell of my first love

In my head I pictured us as we were then

Had I kidded myself that I’d moved on?

There was more of our story to come

So I wrote back and said we can meet up if you want

The saddest summer of Samuel S

Was the book she was reading when we first met

She arrived at the station right on time and said

Lets turn back the clock to 1979

In the pub we held hands and later we kissed

She said you can be Billy & I can be Liz

And for a few brief moments everything felt right

We checked into a hotel later that night

And The Saddest Summer of Samuel S

Was the book she was reading when we first met

We said goodbye in the morning I’ve not seen her since then

I returned to the marriage the kids the friends

Made some excuses and nothing was said

It’s as if the whole thing took place in my head

And there’s a time to remember and a time to forget

A time to shut up and a time to confess

And The Saddest Summer of Samuel S

Was the book she was reading when we first met
