Music Monday: “Summer’s End” by Foo Fighters

musicmonday

Music Monday is a meme created by Drew at The Tattooed Book Geek where I focus on a song I absolutely love and feel needs to be shared.

Song: “Summer’s End”
Artist: Foo Fighters
Album: Echoes, Silence, Patience, & Grace (2007)

Lyrics taken from genius.com

[Verse 1]
Early morning without warning
Woke me with a scare
I had that dream again
That the sun was dead

Make me warm or take me home
It’s so cold in here
Can’t we meet somewhere
Is it winter there?
Is it winter there?
This winter

[Chorus]
Meet me in the summertime
We can move the air
Sweet Virginia countryside
I will meet you there
Golden lips and cherry wine
Moonshine in your hair
Just keep staring at the sun
Pray for summer’s end

[Verse 2]
Come on over brave my storm
Oceans overhead
Come inside, my friend
Getting bad out there

Every moment we have stolen
All we have to share
No one wanted them
But you know I did
You know I did
This moment

[Chorus] [x2]

[Outro]
Meet me in the summertime
Meet me in the summertime
Meet me in the summertime
We can move the air
Meet me in the summertime
I will meet you there

Though Foo Fighters are most likely more well known for their rock-oriented singles like “Monkey Wrench” and “Everlong”, 2007’s Echoes, Silence, Patience, & Grace saw them explore more influences. Though the structure and lyrics are fairly straight-forward, “Summer’s End” evokes watching the sun set on an August Sunday with its twangy guitars and pop-hook chorus. I thought this would be a fitting Music Monday choice for the last single song Music Monday of summer due to its sound and its sentiment.
