Summer's Here

from Man On The Sun by Marc Farre



battery park, nyc, june 1998


what was that song, i’ve forgotten
you know the one by Johnny Rotten
in the park along the Hudson
river dark and sweet and sudden

it’s time
it’s here

another time, another story
a different life now stands before me
the feeling hurts inside my body
the feeling sings
she belongs to me

well it’s very clear
summertime is here

summer’s here and no denying it
close your eyes and move inside it
the night is rich and deep and swollen
the night’s alive and we have broken in

drop the words, drop all the meanings
drop your clothes into the evening light
the moonlight falls upon your body
and night dissolves into the dawn of time

well it’s very clear
love is finally here

what was that song I’ve forgotten
you know, the one by Johnny Rotten?
it’s half the time, twice the distance
between the lines of least resistance

half the time, twice the distance
between the lines…

“In the company of European-influenced musicians like Leonard Cohen, Lou Reed, and Nick Cave. A throaty voice, highly poetic lyrics and a kinetic band behind him. Compelling.”
