Okanagan Summer Music and Lyrics copyright 2011 by Mike Luniw

verse 1
Okanagan summer – I'm burning in the lake
Don't make me come and find you
'cause I will – make no mistake
This is where I got religion
This is where I let it go
This is where I went to pieces
but not so anyone would know

chorus 1
Let's go walking down the railway tracks
just the way I always wanted us to
I smell creosote in the sun -
is this dream coming strange or true?
Well this place is still under my skin
and it's making my senses too keen
They're dragging a car from the lake today
wasn't she a beauty queen?

Verse 2
Okanagan hot streak, the mountains fade away
They'll be back with a vengeance
as I'm in this strange little town again
With my new nirvana sunburn
choking on the dusty road
I'm coming 'round to see you
and my heart's a heavy load

chorus 2
Let's go driving down Deep Creek Road
and finish everything we started to say
I'm tangled in loose ends and missing friends
Help me cut it all away
Well this place is still under my skin
and it's making my senses too keen
They're dragging a car from the lake today
wasn't she a beauty queen?

Bridge
They tore up the rails here some twenty years ago
The highway's wide and empty
Hot after midnight, sleep's thin as pyrite
in a restless sprawl on the edge of town
The bed's too big, the room's too small,
Gonna go burn my nerves away in my car
Communion, confession, confusion and dreaming
and I can't tell if I'm ever leaving
verse 3
Okanagan summer will promise anything
And it just about delivers
but you gotta deal to swing
I thought I had the past paid,
but it sleeps even worse than me
What's the price of peace of mind now?
These payments are killing me
These payments are killing me
