Summer Lyrics

To my heartbeat's sound
We fell in love
As the leaves turned brown
And we could be together baby
As long as skies are blue
You act so innocent now
But you lied so soon
When I met you in the summer


When I met you in the...

    The song "Summer" by Calvin Harris is talking about how this young man fell in love with a girl during the summer. As the summer progressed, and fall came around the relationship was ending just like summer. The reason why the relationship was ending was because the girl was not trustworthy and honest to the man in which explains the lines stated "You act so innocent now, but you lied so soon". The girl was perpetually lying to the man and as the summer was progressing to an end, their relationship was progressing to an end as well.

    I think it's about when he meets a girl over a summer, and after they hang out for it, she wants him to know that she likes him, and after she told him he said that he wants her to be his girlfriend. After she said yes, a while later, she started to play around with other guys, that's when she lied about it, that's the meaning of "You act so innocent now, but you lied so soon." Because she was an angle when he meet her, but she started to lie about stuff.....

    Ok. So, I'm not completely sure, but this is my guess on what the lyrics to the song, "Summer", by Calvin Harris means. I will do it piece by piece and try to cover everything.

    "When I met you in the summer/To my heartbeat's sound" I think he met a a girl that he really liked in the summer, so his heart was kind of pounding because he liked her so much.

    "We fell in love/As the leaves turned brown" I think that either he was under the impression, by Autumn, that they were in a true relationship, or that it is a metaphor: just like two people fall in love, the leaves turn brown and fall off the trees. Leaves falling off the tree in the Fall is just a fact of life, it is a concrete thing that always happens and everyone knows will happen. I think he might be saying that just like it is a strong fact that those leaves fall, their relationship is so perfect that it is almost like a fact of life. I don't know if I explained that well.

    "And we could be together baby/As long as skies are blue" This could mean two things. Either that they will always be together just as the sky will always be blue, so it is a comparison. Or, that as long as things are going well and they are honest with each other, their relationship will keep going well.

    "You act so innocent now/But you lied so soon" This probably means that this girl that he was in love with either acted innocent, and then totally turned out to be garbage and a liar, or that during the summer, this girl that he was met and was in love with, first acted in a way that he loved, and then she lied, and they had this whole summer drama saga and then he's with her again later, and she' sore tending that nothing happened.

    The guy fell in love during human’s “summer time” however this was only his beat of hurt.
    The girl only used him as she was still looking for her on “summer beat” of family raising time.

    This song means that they both fall in love during Summer, then when Summer is over they both drift away because their vacation is over and they have to get back to their routine life... Now one of them could act innocent because they want to feel being in love, but they both know that the relationship will not that last..

    I know this isn’t right but my daughter was born in August and I sing this song to her because we met in the summer to our heart beat sounds. Of course she started out acting innocent because she was a baby. She is a teenager now so the leaves are real brown

    And we could be together baby
    As long the skies are blue

    If don't live in a hot region, then in winter the skies turn white. This is a bit of backup to all of the fall leaves falling down meaning the relationship ends once the leaves fall down and the skies are no longer blue.

    She lied about her age, but now that she's old enough she acts like she never slept around before 18

    The way I see things is he met a girl in the summer they fell in love until around the season fall that when the leaves turn brown also meaning we fell in love until the fall in there relationship and when he say we could be together aslong as the skies he means aslong as its clear that they both we to be together then he said you act so innocent now but you lied so soon his give us a clue about what happen what I take is she act like nothing happened and she act like she love him but she lied about her feeling and I also think he means she lied with another guy in the beginning of there relationship. .

    I have a feeling that this one is about a girl who met this guy and the first night/day/whatever they were just physically attracted and did whatever they did. It was like casual sex. Then, pretty quickly, she decided that maybe he was a keeper after all, and she started pretending like she was a lot more inexperienced than she was because she didn't figure he would stay with a slut -- but interestingly, probably he liked her and would have stayed with her regardless. But she still felt like she had to bs him to win him permanently. Sounds like her girlfriends told her she did.

    I know it's not proper grammar, but I'd prefer to think of this song as a positive, unending love (song).

    I want
    "You act so innocent now, but you [lied] so soon"
    To mean: you act like we didn't sleep together on the first date.

    The way parents act as though they were innocent before their children were born.

    It means what is the point of innocence if it's fake? Would you rather have someone be fake and nice or mean but true?

    He's talking about a girl who he falls in love with during summer. They spend time together but she cheats on him or leaves him and so he says that you act so innocent now but you lied so soon. But that part can be about anything for example if someone promises to give us everything and be with us but doesn't fulfill the promises then we can relate to the song through this lyric

    This song is about a guy who finds the perfect girl for him one summer and wants her to know he would give her everything. But then after a long summer together, she deceives him as he explains when he says "you act so innocent now but you lied so soon." Meaning she wasn't honest with him and ruined the relationship. It was a summer romance.
