In the Heat of Summer

Though our parents offered lifts we preferred to walk alone
To the place where we’d arranged to meet up on our mobile phones
And though I missed the finer points I knew the argument was won
Cos everybody hates the Tories cos the Tories are all scum
What we sung in the heat of summer
I’ve never felt so alive
 
In the throbbing of the crowd we were swaying to and fro
And when I grabbed your hand to help you I was aware you didn’t let go
And as the crowd approached the police some people broke into a run
And though we mostly kept our distance we threw the odd thing just for fun
What we done in the heat of summer
I’ve never felt so in love
 
We met Cody at the bank; blood was streaming from his head
You say that he’s a natural leader and you’re willing to be led
And when the police kettled us in I got cut off from everyone
And though the atmosphere was friendly I wasn’t much conversation
 
On my bum in the heat of summer
I’ve never felt so alone
