“You were just a tease”

Song: The Summer You Let Your Hair Grow Out
Artist: Pansy Division
Album: Wish I’d Taken Pictures

A jangly, lighter-than-air, harmless, cute li’l tw0-minute guitar pop ditty. Nice, short bursts of harmonies on the chorus, but it only pops up twice, so enjoy it! And, the lyrics are completely intelligible! You can even catch them all the first time through, allowing for an extremely steep learning curve on sing-alongs. The lyrical content is total freakin’ fluff but a near-universal experience nonetheless. Who hasn’t been this silly at one time or another?

“The summer you let your hair grow out
hope hung heavy in the air
the summer you let your grow out
I thought you and me could get somewhere

Working in that big department store
wishing we could spend our days outside
taking our breaks at the same time
it felt like more than friendship was on the line
talking for hours on end
I was someone you could relate to
daily you were dropping king-size clues
you had me going, I was going hard for you

Flirting till I could not resist
I made the move I’d so long wanted to
but finally, you were just a tease
you led me on but wouldn’t follow through

The summer you let your hair grow out
hope hung heavy in the air
the summer you let your hair grow out
I thought you and me would get somewhere
I thought you and me would get somewhere”
