Night Song by Sarah Vaughan

Oh summer, not a bit of breeze
Neon signs are shining through the tired trees
Lovers walking to and fro
Everyone has someone and a place to go
Listen, hear the cars come, pass
They don't even see me flying by so fast
They're moving, going who knows where
Only thing I know is I am not going there
Where do you go
When you feel that your brain is on fire
Where do you go
When you don't even know what it is you desire
Listen, laughter everywhere
Hear it, life is in the air
As the night comes and the town awakes
Sound of children calling
And the squeal of brakes
Music but a lonely song
When you can't help wondering
Where do I belong
When you can't help wondering
Where do I belong

BERV: "THIS SONG IS ABOUT NIGHT. IT IS TOO SPECIFIC. NO ONE CAN RELATE. WHAT GARBAGE. I CAN'T STAND FEMALE SINGERS."."

Most songs about summer make me feel good. But in this song there is no breeze so it makes me feel like it's too hot. And neon signs shining through the trees makes me feel like it is a hot night. I hate hot nights in summer with no breeze. So instantly I feel uncomfortable. Then cars come in and zip around and nobody knows where they are going and now I feel horrible. Amazing how sucsessful they were at taking a song about summer and turning it into something disturbing and no fun for the listener. Songs about summer usually make me happy. Not this one.

This song reminds me of 'We All Need Love'

A lonely lady who's watching summer go on all around her

This is a sad summer song

I hope this lady finds a few friends
